There's a reason why golf is a warm weather sport. One video that's going viral helps drive the point home.

In the video posted by golfgrinders on Instagram, a male golfer can be seen standing on a frozen pond, lining up a shot with his iron.

The man takes a swing, but slips and his club hits the ice behind the ball. He falls, shatters the ice and plunges into the cold water.

The video ends with a gasp from the person who shot the video, and the man surfacing through the icy water.

There's no word on the man's condition, but we sure hope he waits until winter thaws out to get back on the course.
