A couple of weeks back, I thought it was pretty cool when I won portable Bose speakers -- the prize for closest to the hole on the par-3 third at TPC Boston in a media day outing for the 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship on tap for Labor Day weekend.
Speaking of "on tap," I learned today that Englishman Andy Sullivan's closest to the hole prize during a stunt ahead of the D+D REAL Czech Masters in Prague on Tuesday was way better than my speakers.
Sullivan, currently No. 8 on the European Ryder Cup points list, took home a year's worth of free beer for his closest to the hole effort on a makeshift 94-yard hole. The green was floating on a river and the "hole" was actually a keg of beer.
Here's video of Sullivan talking about his score, including this gem of a line: "I don't think it could have gone to a more worthy winner."
John Daly, also playing in Prague this week, tweeted out these pictures from the stunt:
Sullivan, by the way, is the same player who won a trip to space as a hole-in-one prize at the KLM Open in The Netherlands back in 2014.
