Pretty much everyone knows that Justin Timberlake is a great golfer, but recent video of the star at Top Golf suggests he may not be the most reserved one.

Timberlake, who is an equally talented actor, singer, comedian, dancer and golfer got a little crazy at a Top Golf in Charlotte, North Carolina this month. The “Cry Me A River” star, 37, somehow managed to pull off a “Happy Gilmore” shot, which is pretty much a blend between an aggressive hockey shot and a golf shot.

He posted it to Instagram and has received a TON of love for it. The video’s been viewed over 4 million times, and everyone from Niall Horan to Dwayne Wade have commented on it.

We think we know why it’s blown up on social media…the shot was basically perfect:

Now obviously, not everyone is as talented as J.T. when it comes to golf, and even though Top Golf isn’t the most reserved country club in the world, they still have rules. Apparently, the company found out about Timberlake’s little trick and sent him a not-so-stern warning, claiming they’d tell his mom if he pulled a stunt like this again.

“We aren’t necessarily mad, we’re just disappointed in him. We’ll try to reach out to his reps, BUT we may just have to call his mom,” Top Golf said in a statement, per TMZ.

We’re pretty sure even his mom would be impressed by this.
