Talk about calling your shot!
Ryder Cup play gets underway tomorrow morning in Minnesota at the Hazeltine National Golf Club, but the fireworks got started a little early! During a practice round today, Team Europe members, Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson both struggled to make a particular 12ft putt – missing it 6 times each! Meanwhile, David Johnson, a heckler in the crowd, proclaimed HE could make that putt…and the professionals let him give it a try!
To up the stakes, fellow Team Europe member, Justin Rose put down $100 for David if he hit the putt on the first try! What happened? Well I probably wouldn’t be blogging about it if he missed! Wow!
