Cigar- Guy

Daily Mail photographer, Mark Pain did not so much as flinch when he steadied himself for this shot at The Ryder Cup.
As Tiger's golf ball was making a line-drive towards his camera, a final click of the shutter captured this amazing shot before the camera lens was shattered by the ball.

I would have thought that both photography and golf-enthusiasts would promote this photo as remarkable but no. The fact is that this photo did not gain its notoriety for the subject or the amazing camera shot but instead, the photo 'went viral' because of a spectator...
Simply known as "Cigar Guy". He is everywhere. Due to his distinctive features, turban and big-ass cigar, he has gained a cult status following of his own. Only in America. I love it.
