Watch a Golfer Take Out a $80,000 Camera at the British Open Today

Earlier today at the first round of the British Open, PGA pro Thomas Bjorn hit a ball out of the rough on the first hole and struck the camera that was capturing his swing.

Commentator Mike Tirico said the camera costs around $80,000. And while it appears to only be the lens that was damaged, those HD ENG zoom lenses generally cost a pretty penny themselves.

I suspect that ESPN pulled a spare out of the truck and was up and running in a few minutes though.
