A.J. Hawk, linebacker for the Cincinnati Bengals, gave one lucky fan a heck of a gift on Thursday.
Though, we’re not sure if he liked it or not.
During some down time at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, Hawk delivered a bone-crunching hit to one of the fans on the fairway.
Given the amount of media with cameras at the ready, this was certainly staged, which means the poor guy receiving the blow knew it was coming.
And as you can tell, the fan appears to be a well-built young man.
All that said, he may have been rethinking the entire thing as he lay on the ground, dazed and confused. A good rule of thumb in these circumstances is to let the pros handle the physical side of the game.
