Closest To The Flagstick at Atlantis
By Torleif Sorenson on 11/12/13

Organizers of the European Tour's season-ending championship in Dubai set up a friendly little competition Monday in which five players gathered at the Royal Bridge Suite of the Atlantis Hotel, 22 stories above the ground. The closest-to-the-pin competition was centered on an impossibly small green (30 feet deep by 16 feet wide) floating 225 yards away, just off the beach.


Because they can.

My eyesight is not what it used to be. Did anyone else actually see the winner's ball hit the green? *

*Don't want to spoil it for everyone.

No, I had trouble seeing it as well. I had to maximize it on my monitor, and even then it just sort of "appeared" to the right of the jar.

Do I hear a hint of a conspiracy? Really!

I was in Dubai a couple of months ago - Atlantis was right across the bay from where I was staying. Looks like a very cool place. Emirates Golf Club was VERY nice!!!
