It must be the Hero World Challenge time if the European Tour players are teeing off from odd-ball places. This time some of the Tour’s marquee players hit balls from Canary Wharf in downtown London, while trying to hit some floating platforms.
The European Tour’s under-the-lights shootout was taking place ahead of this week’s Sky Sports British Masters. The contestants were England’s Andrew “Beef” Johnston, Justin Rose, and Matt Wallace, along with defending champion Paul Dunne of Ireland. Danes Thomas Bjørn and Thorbjørn Olesen also took shots.
In the clip below, Rose came the closest to an ace but in reality had no chance with the way hole was designed.
As one commenter wrote, “They can’t even build a proper flat island … what a load of rubbish.”
And another posted, “The hole is crowned…how do they expect anyone to get an ace if they can’t even make it flat?”
In the end, Andrew “Beef” Johnston won.
