We have long extolled the creativity and wit displayed by the European Tour's social video team; every new clip is like receiving a present on Christmas day. One of the gems from last season featured a trio of Euro foursomes attempting to break the Guinness World Record for fastest hole in golf, with a French quartet (Raphael Jacquelin, Alex Levy, Romain Wattel, and Gregory Havret) shattering the mark. Simple in premise, yes, but nevertheless a delight to watch.
With that in mind, we present this video of four PGA Tour rookies -- Tom Lovelady, Lanto Griffin, Andrew Yun and Stephan Jaeger -- trying to beat Team France at the 500-yard 17th hole at Palm Desert Country Club in California.
Kudos to the rooks on their achievement. Let's hope this spurs a response from the Euro team involving hovercrafts, parachutes and exploding greens a la Caddyshack.
