[:en]Ruby Kavanaugh — remember that name. The eight-year-old golf sensation has a swing that rivals PGA professionals, and recently put it on display for a photographer in Australia.

Kavanaugh lines up her tee shot and crushes a beauty headed straight for the center of the fairway. Unfortunately, a Yuneec Typhoon H hexacopter happened to be in her path. The apologetic eight-year-old then watched as the $1,900 drone dropped from the sky.

Of course, not everyone believes the shot to be legitimate. Some have concluded that there’s really no apparent reason the drone plummeted to the ground like it did. The blades were operational and it should have been able to remain in the air, according to critics. Flying off to the side like it did could be consistent with an operator responding to impact and intentionally grounding the aircraft.

Others question the grainy video. The drone, after all, is capable of 4k-quality video.

Personally, we don’t really care one way or another. Legitimate shot, or well-executed stunt, it’s still pretty damn cool. Well, unless you’re the drone owner.
