VIDEO: How NOT to pull out a loose tooth

Loose tooth

When I was little, I loved pulling out loose teeth -- mainly because it meant a cash reward from the Tooth Fairy. I would wiggle those loose teeth free with my fingers or my tongue. Only once did I use an apple to extricate one of my baby chompers.

So imagine my terror when I saw this video. A father named Philip and his son, Noah, appear in the video as the Dad of the Year explains that he wants to help his son pull out a loose tooth. He decides to go the unconventional route, tying one end of a string to Noah's tooth and the other a golf ball. Then the dad tees up the ball and hits it with a golf club, and the force pulls out Noah's tooth.

I'm honestly not sure if I want to commend this dad for coming up with a novel take on tying a string to something to yank out a tooth or call Child Protective Services. So I'll leave that judgment to you.

Golf lost one of its shining stars 19 years ago today. What's your favorite Payne Stewart memory? #gonetoosoon #PayneStewart
