The 200-Yard Lake-Skimming Gong Shot
FOUR EUROPEAN TOUR PROS and their caddies arrive at the Gap of Dunloe in Killarney. Ryder Cup veteran Paul McGinley, David Howell, Marcel Siem and Rhys Davies of the European Tour proceed to try a 200-yard lake-skimming gong shot that simply can’t be done. Or can it?
McGinley goes first, using a driver. Laughter follows.
“That’s really embarrassing,” says Howell. “Terrible.”
“PGA Tour, these guys are good,” says McGinley. “European Tour, these guys are crap.”
But McGinley keeps trying, along with the others. On one attempt, Davies actually misses the lake. Then more shots until ... well, watch and see.
