Underwater hole-in-one puts Busselton in the spotlight | video

A truly ridiculous golf shot which resulted in an underwater hole-in-one has put Busselton in the spotlight.

A group called How Ridiculous, which consists of four friends from Perth, were down south on holiday when they decided to set up their very own golf course - with a twist.

The only hole on the course was a Par 1 with the pin was set out out to sea around two and a half metres down on the ocean floor.

One of the team teed off from the beach and then the ball slowly floated down to the bottom of the ocean before bouncing gently off the lip of the hole and dropping in to the delight of all those involved.

Watch the shot below in their Youtube video.

The video has already gained notoriety on social media with the Golf Australia Facebook page posting the video and dubbing it the "most innovative golf hole of the summer"

The post had already received more than 2,000 likes and 400 shares by 11.30am on Monday. The Youtube video has had more than 7,500 views as of midday on Monday.

The How Ridiculous team began in 2009 when four friends from Perth started filming some of their trick shots - mostly basketball-related.

As they continued the trick shots got more and more ridiculous and they started to branch out in to other sports like golf, soccer and ten-pin bowling.

They also set the world record for the greatest height from which a basketball shot has been made from the top of the Euromast in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

After gaining thousands of subscribers on their Youtube Channel the How Ridiculous team decided they wanted to use their notoriety for good and have been passionately supporting not-for-profit organisation 'Compassion' to see children released from poverty in Jesus name'.

"We want to inspire others to use their gifts, talents and resources and join us in the fight against child poverty, their website reads.

And, this is not the first time the How Ridiculous team have been to Busselton. On a previous holiday to the town they performed another trick shot - the 'plate smash'.

The aim was to hit a dinner plate mid-air with a golf ball launched from the beach. It took a couple of attempts but finally they were successful.

Watch the video of them performing the 'plate smash' trick shot below.
