Video: Nick Faldo tries to throw a cupcake away with hilarious results

In a lull during the second round of the PGA Tour's Humana Challenge, Golf Channel's Sir Nick Faldo (he has been knighted so we need to call him "Sir") thought he would tease golfing legend Gary Player during a fitness segment with a cupcake. As Player playfully scolded him, Sir Nick decided to toss said cupcake over his shoulder and instead of falling harmlessly to the ground, it stuck to the window behind him and his broadcasting partner, Terry Gannon. Hilarity ensued.

Golf Channel colleague Kelly Tilghman tweeted that the cupcake remained on the glass for the entire segment.

NBC's Dan Hicks joked that on-course reporter Roger Maltbie might try to get the cupcake later.

Sometimes live unscripted TV gives you the best gems. At least the cupcake gave Golf Channel a nice backdrop during the Gary Player segment.
