VIDEO: Can European Tour Pros Hit a Fairway That’s Two Yards Wide?




“Armed with just their drivers, could Nicolas Colsaerts, Ross Fisher, Richie Ramsay or Søren Kjeldsen do the impossible and find the Two Yard Fairway?” asked the European Tour.

(You’ll have to watch to find out.)

“Filmed on location at the Al Qudra Cycle track ahead of the Race to Dubai finale at the DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates, the eighth Rolex Series event in 2017,” the tour added, “we took four European Tour pros into the Dubai desert for a test of driving like no other.”

The European Tour also noted that the widest fairway in golf is probably the first hole of the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. Or, if there’s a wider fairway, it’s certainly not as famous as the one at the Home of Golf.

Two rounds of the DP World Tour Championship are in the books. Defending champion Matthew Fitzpatrick leads at the halfway point. Fourteen players are within four shots of the lead.
