The British Masters is going on this week on the European Tour.
Before the tournament kicked off, there was a funny moment to come out of the pro-am.
European Tour winner Tyrrell Hatton -- 5 ft., 9 inches tall -- played alongside Britain's tallest man, Paul Sturgess, who registers at 7 feet, 7 inches tall.
Sturgess, 29, has spent four years playing professional basketball for the Harlem Globetrotters and finished his most recent tour in May. His trademark has become a slam dunk... barely leaving his feet and holding the rim while standing.
During the pro-am round, Hatton and Sturgess decided to swap putters, which was good for a laugh. But, as you can see for both players weilding the improperly-sized putters, they were both able to knock it down with no problem.
Also, a little fun fact about Sturgess and his golf game. Believe it or not, he's an impressive 8 handicap.
