The European Tour is in Donegal, Ireland this week for the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. With the World Cup in full effect, some European Tour golfers decided to turn the links at the Ballyliffin Golf Club into their own type of soccer pitch.
Defending Irish Open champion Jon Rahm joined Alex Levy, Marcel Siem, and Matt Wallace in a crossbar challenge. The foursome lined up 150 yards away from a soccer net, taking aim at the crossbar above the goal. Despite two incredibly close shots on net by Rahm, Levy may have come the closest in their attempts. Would anyone hit the crossbar?
Watch them try:
Though the efforts may have fallen short of expectations, Siem found a way to finally hit that elusive crossbar. Kind of. At the very least, he got a roaring ovation from his three cohorts as he raised his arms in triumph.
So, think you have it in you to hit the crossbar?
