GolfMagic recreate viral video with Man United legend Paul Scholes

Paul Scholes hit the most incredible shot at Wentworth at the BMW PGA earlier in May, holing out from a greenside bunker live on Sky Sports Golf. The footage quickly went viral receiving hundreds of thousands of views across social media.

Last week GolfMagic challenged Scholes to replicate his feat with just eight balls in three minutes – surely even the former England and Manchester United legend would struggle to do that?

Or not...

The video was created in partnership with TaylorMade in a continued effort by both to attract a new young audience to golf.

As well as recreating his now iconic bunker shot the 11-time Premier League winner sat down with GolfMagic's Content Executive and PGA professional Sam Mellor, at Dunham Forest Golf & Country Club, to talk more about the good, bad and ugly in his golf game, coming out of retirement AGAIN, first-tee jitters when annually playing in the BMW PGA Championship Pro-Am at Wentworth, and more.
