I just got called out. Some internet tough guy, whose name I should post but will refrain from doing since I’m an awesome guy, emailed me a video of his attempt at what has so flatteringly been dubbed “The Dorn Skeet Shot” by the internet. I posted my version to Vine on New Year’s Eve, then uploaded a second angle to YouTube soon after, including some sexy slow-mo action that gets the people going.

In my video, I used a 57-degree Cleveland wedge to hit a flop shot. After I struck the ball cleanly and hit a beautiful, high-arching flop, I took a quick peek to spot the Titleist Pro V1 against the rich blue of the Texas sky so I’d know where to meet it with my eyes once I was ready to aim and fire. My buddy Eugene then handed me my 12-gauge after I nonchalantly tossed the wedge aside and looked back up to find the ball soaring through the air. Impossibly, I found my footing on the terribly uneven terrain, aimed, and shot it right out of the sky. Splashed it. Eugene went crazy. It was my first attempt. I was five cold ones deep.

Here it is:

Well, I have my first Dorn Skeet Shot challenger. In an emergency Mailbag, I put it to the people to decide who did it best: me or internet tough guy. Here’s the email I received:

Tell Dorn that this shits on his skeet golf shooting video.

And here’s his version:

Let’s compare, shall we?

• He hit the ball and someone else shot it for him… Uh, cool story, dude. That looked tough. Did they even hit it? Doubt it.
• His swing isn’t all that good. Makes me look like ’99 Tiger.
• Where are the theatrics? Where’s the yelling? Where’s the slow-mo? Where’s the club toss? Where’s Eugene? You didn’t even have a Eugene.
• “Someone’s gonna die” could be heard at the start of my shit. No one said anything cool for your stupid video.

You get major points for setting, though. I don’t know where this was filmed, but that’s some fine scenery there. Yeah, so that’s literally the only thing this video has over mine.

Do we need to put it to a vote, or can we just shut the book on this one? Let’s shut it. Sorry for wasting everyone’s time.
