This is What’s Trending Today.

Minju Kim is a young golfer from South Korea.

Recently, she posted a number of photos of herself playing in California on Instagram. She even posed for a photo with professional golfer Adam Scott of Australia.

Kim is not yet a famous player. She works as a golf teacher in South Korea. However, she has almost 15,000 followers on Instagram.

Those followers and many golf fans around the world are reacting to a trick shot video she posted the other day. It already has over 40,000 views on her Instagram page, and other media organizations have posted it, too.

It is a video of Kim hitting a golf ball while in a bowling alley.

She drives the ball towards the pins, and knocks them all down.

In bowling, that is called a “strike.”

Golf.com posted the video on its Facebook page, and in less than a day, it had almost 600,000 views. The same video on Golf Digest’s Instagram page was played over 100,000 times.

Some people think the video is great. They say it combines their two favorite sports.

One Facebook commenter proposed it as a way for his friend to get a better bowling score. Golf Digest suggested the new sport could be called “gowling.”

The video does have its critics. People are saying it is not real.

They think the golf ball is not heavy enough to knock down the bowling pins. They also say the video is edited to show the pins falling down, but it is not clear that Kim hits them with the golf ball.

On Facebook, Mark Brennan wrote: “everyone knows this is fake, right?”

Kim took another shot and one pin remained. The next part of the video showed a close-up of a third shot knocking down the 10th pin, for what is called a “spare” in bowling.

And that’s What’s Trending Today.
