As part of Red Bull Capital Drive, PGA tour Rookie of the Year Rickie Fowler hit a hole in one from an elevated tee box, without a sight line, at a man-made hole constructed for him at Washington D.C.’s Historic Georgetown Waterfront. Leading into the US Open, the man-made 106-yard hole tested Fowler’s precise shot-making skills, surrounded by fans, buildings and a narrow fairway leading to a fountain hole with the Potomac River as a backdrop and winds swirling. Fowler’s shots had to go over a fountain hazard – and into an island green placed in another fountain.
This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been willing to have a mouth full of sand to reach a tasty treat. The first time was when I buried a Mars Bar to stop the crabs from stealing it on the beach. Those cheeky little claw wielding buggers. No wonder ‘Deadliest Catch’ is my favorite show. A show about crab murder! Die you evil crustaceans!
Whatever your feelings on Michael Bay’s films, there’s no denying the man lives and breathes epic-ness.
Case in point. While watching 60 Minutes, Bay caught a glimpse of Precision Skydivers doing aerial stunts, called producer Steven Spielberg and said “I gotta have wingsuits in Transformers 3″. Talk about conversation starters.
And just in case you thought it might be another CGI green screen stunt, watch the video below and be astonished.
Guess that’s what you get when you command billion dollar movie franchises and demand awesome.
Woodward West in Tehachapi recently built a Mega Ramp and Danny Way flew in a helicopter for the Grand Opening to meet up with all the other pros there for the occasion.

David Beckham stopped a straying soccer fan during Manchester United’s Gary Neville testimonial match against Juventus. The kid was making a run from the security when he ran straight into Beckham’s path.
Maybe David could work security tackling streakers after his soccer career ends. Peep a second angle after the jump.
I couldn’t find any information on the video below besides it being mostly filmed in Norway by The Skywalkers and Soul Flyers Team. What I can tell you however is that it’s by far the most intense and epic footage I have witnessed in a while. Come fly with me, come fly lets fly away. Shout out to Adriano Tanaka for the hook ups, this video is out of control!

What would happen if Ice Cube’s “Today was a Good Day” was fast forwarded 18 years later and set in a modern-day start-up? …in a world with no pagers or drop top convertibles, just Foursquare check-ins and beach cruisers. You’re about to find out.
Finally the guys have won their battle of censorship at MTV to get the original Dudesons episodes on AIR. These episodes were shot in Finland and across Europe with not too many restrictions, rules, laws or anything that would tie their hands and ideas down—back in the days when it was pretty much just four Dudesons, few camera guys, whole lot of dynamite, cars to crash, and plenty of other ways for things to go wrong! To celebrate here are some of the best moments from them over the last 10 years!
“The Descent” by Casio G-Shock, is an adventure video shot in Lauterbrunnen and Kandersteg Switzerland demonstrating the cohesive relationship between man, nature and technology.
