Tomas Gomez wanted "to hit one last shot, then leave" when weather began to take a turn during his assigned time at a Topgolf in San Antonio, Texas.

The 18-year-old was out playing with friends and family back in late May, KSAT reports.

He asked one of his friends to record the last shot of the game.

What happened next, you have to see to believe.

Gomez took his swing and as the ball was flying into the air, cellphone video shows it being struck by lightning. Topgolf posted the video to its Instagram page last week.

Gomez and his friends ran for cover.

"I heard the thunder and my instinct was to run. It was all a blur," he said. "It could have hit me. It could have hit any of us. It was actually pretty scary after I was thinking about it for a while."

Topgolf reported no one was injured and everyone was safely evacuated.

The golf ball was traveling at 88 mph.

KSAT reports asking Topgolf their policies regarding inclement weather, but did not get a response.
