I ordered Olympic golfer Kim Chopley to ‘close my eyes and do a tee shot’

2021 Tokyo Olympic men’s golf gold medalist Zander Shopley (USA) recorded a hole-in-one birdie even with his eyes closed, making it a hot topic.

Shopley recently participated in the ‘Highland X Vision Challenge’, an event competition hosted by Highland, one of its sponsors, and challenged ‘blindfolded par 3 hole competition’. The event, which took place on a 105-yard par 3 hole, was played twice, depending on the help of people around you, after covering your eyes with an eye patch.

In the first attempt without help, the first tee shot was out of bounds (OB). He received a penalty and his third shot went to the bunker next to the green. Shopley, who lost at-bats going back and forth between bunkers and bunkers around the green, struggled to get to the green, but was unable to hole out. 스포츠토토

The second attempt with assistance was different. After receiving information about the ball position, aiming, distance, and wind direction from his father and caddy, Shopley hit the ball confidently. The ball that landed on the green slightly passed the side of the hole and stopped at a distance of 1m. Shopley, who made a successful uphill putt and holed out with a birdie, said, “I have to play like this in a tournament… ”he laughed.

After the game, he said, “With the help of my father and caddy, I was able to finish well. He laughed, saying, “I don’t want to play 18 holes like this.” At the Phoenix Open, which opens on the 9th, Shopley will challenge for his 8th win on the PGA Tour.
