200 Yard Gong Shot
By Kickntrue on 8/23/10
I don't know the story behind this, other than the YouTube description- but it's a pretty entertaining video. If nothing else- you can see a bunch of millionaires having fun like a bunch of kids, which in itself is admirable.
Could David Howell, Paul McGinley, Marcel Siem or Rhys Davies skim a ball 200 yards across a lake and hit a 9 inch gong?You had me at "skim." My favorite moment is at the 30 second mark- when Paul McGinley shanks a shot and says, "PGA Tour- these guys are good. European Tour- these guys are crap!"
This seems to be something being run by the European Tour, with this being the first "challenge." I hope to see more... this is pretty fun.

What a great shot!!! I saw this the other day, shoulda sent the link. I couldn't imagine being good enough to purposely skim a golf ball and hit a 15" target 200 yards away.
seems like the only way to do it on that lake with all the waves was fly it almost all the way there. Still would take me probably 2 weeks to do that.
Jeez! That's awesome! Might have to try and do something similar with my mates...head out to a local quarry or forest (wherever we think of) and try and film u doing crazy shots.
It's a bit like the "crossbar challenge" that soccer players do on a TV show over here where a whole team will take turns to kick the ball from the halfway line and hit the crossbar.
i probably couldn't hit the water if i tried. seems to me when i want to hit something i hit something else. i would've hit the mountain or something.

After watching the gong show, checkout the other tab of all-time great shots.
I love the part when Rhys Davies hits the rocks and completely misses the lake. Thats priceless!
