How would you go on a pro par 3?

THE thought of trying to match the pros on one of their interminable 550 yard par 4’s would not be every amateur’s cup of tea but how about the short par 3’s?

Many amateurs have no doubt thought they wouldn’t go too badly on some of the holes they see on TV.

The European Tour decided to give the idea legs during the KLM Open last week with a “Beat the Pro” challenge.

At the stadium seating par-3 14th hole one amateur got the chance to tee it up in each group in a closest to the hole contest.

Amateurs not only had the hole to contend with but the pressure of a raucous crowd.

Whilst some amateurs did manage to give the hole a scare, for others it was more the crowd ducking and weaving avoiding wayward balls, as can be seen in the video.
