Thor Gets Into The Action at Top Golf
I remember seeing such a random stat a few months ago. The odds are 1-183 million that you will be struck by lightning while drowning. This is a pretty specific set of circumstances happening at the right time. Who thinks this stuff up? What about lighting striking a golf ball that you just hit in mid-air? Well, I don't know the exact odds about this one, but it just happened in San Antonio earlier this year.
As reported last week by KSAT-12 in San Antonio, Tomas Gomez and a group of friends were at Top Golf in San Antonio earlier this year. As rain clouds started to move in Gomez and his friends were trying to sneak in all the swings that they could. Gomez teed off and sent his golf ball flying at 88 miles per hour. A couple of seconds later, a massive bolt of lightning struck the ball and the photo was incredible. See video below. Who woke up Thor?

What is the weather policy at Top Golf? According to the TG website, not much will stop a good time at Top Golf. From the website, 'Unless it’s an extreme weather event, nothing can stop a good time at Topgolf, not even rain or snow. Our venues are all-weather facilities with covered hitting bays that are fitted with fans for the summer and heaters for the winter.'
This guy should have bought a lottery ticket on the way home. The odds of hitting a Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350. Which are probably better odd than lightning striking your golf ball in mid-air after you just hit it.
