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.

Want more? See the European Tour’s every shot imaginable.

Thanks for the chuckle. Have the family up from Texas, including the new 1 year old, and I REALLY needed this break.

Glad to help. Enjoy family time. And if you need another break, I'll be here.

This is why the Euro Tour seems like a lot more fun. The closeness of even the guys who are not the stars is pretty cool. Seems like a family.

The golf boys video is the only thing we have seen close to this but the Euro tour has succeed in creating a long term viral ad.

Laughed so loudly that people actually came into the room to ask me what was so funny. "I'm disappointed *for* you." Hilarious.
