In quite possibly the most epic drone shot of all time Tom Brady hits a hole-in-one on the golf course. But is it real?
In recent years, drone videography has gotten better and better. Footage that could only be created with CGI is now a reality. But even with all of the mind-blowing footage we've recently seen, this very well may be the most incredible drone shot I've seen so far (if it's real).
What are the chances a drone operator would capture the perfect shot while Tom Brady also hit the perfect shot? Well, the average hole-in-one comes around every 3,500 rounds of golf. How often are drones also filming golf shots? How often are drones filming golf shots filmed perfectly? It's too rare to comprehend.
But is this too good to be true? Many have pointed out that the flight of the ball seems unnatural. The ball is obviously flying faster than the drone off the club face but then the drone appears to catch up too easily. And then, when it actually hits the green, it appears to awkwardly change directions and appears to be going way too fast to fall into the cup. The ball also looks bigger than it should on the green, and could the crew even see the ball on the green when it's up on a hill?
What do you think? Is it real or fake?
