The 200-yard Gong Shot

I wonder if I could hit a nine-inch target with a golf ball from 200-yards.

Well, having spent 15 years struggling to hit 30-foot greens from far fewer distances, I wouldn’t bet on it.

But tucked away in the mountains of Killarney, Ireland, Paul McGinley, David Howell, Marcel Siem and Rhys Davies attempted just that.

Their challenge – set up by website Every Shot Imaginable – was to skim a ball across a lake and hit a gong with a diameter of just nine inches.

The stunt was the first in a series of tasks to take place across the European Tour – and GOLFmagic can’t wait to find out what’s next.
