European Tour Players Compete Against Each Other With 1930’s Golf Clubs and Outfits

Lee Westood, Danny Willett, and Miguel Angel Jimenez all took part in a unique celebration for the European Master’s 70th anniversary.

The “Hickory Challenge” took place at the Omega European Masters  at the beautiful Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club in Switzerland. Westwood, Willett, and Jimenez, and  Paolo Quirici (the 2013 Hickory World Golf  Champion) played a 2-hole stroke play competition with the winner getting a giant belt with a cow-bell attached to it.

European Tour has all the fun! They use cardboard cutouts of each other for target practice, try to hit a ball into an empty keg, and now their playing dress up and using ancient wooden clubs.
