Playing at the weekend I was most impressed with the quality of our greens and I heard several members making similar comments in the clubhouse afterwards. Unfortunately, that meant I couldn’t blame my missed putts on the flawless playing surface! My putting wasn’t too bad generally but one or two putts just didn’t drop… but that was my own fault because I didn’t hit them hard enough. It’s always frustrating when that happens, or the ball finishes one inch to the left or right of the hole.
Nine years ago a video made by golfers from Campbell University, USA went viral. Nine students lined up and simultaneously struck nine golf balls… and all nine ended up in the hole!
Recently the DP World Tour (formerly the European Tour) challenged Marcel Siem and Ryan Fox to lead a team of DP World Tour players to see if they could complete a similar feat with 12 putts! Watch the video below to see whether or not they succeeded!
