European Tour 2018: Things You Might Have Missed (Challenges, Golf Shots And More)

As the 2017/18 European Tour season draws to close, we thought we would bring you some of the most popular videos of the year.

Every year the guys and girls at the European Tour serve up some impressively engaging content and this year has been no different. Get ready for challenges, golf shots and little guys who can smash a golf ball better than many here at Hole19 HQ.

Here's what we've come up with...

McDowell v Harrington 14 Club Challenge

Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington: two men, both major winners, both from Ireland (North and South) and each given 14 clubs. With closest-to-the pin the name of the game and each having clubs removed along the way, get ready for a competitive challenge and plenty of 'craic'...

Rickie's 458-Yard Drive

Perhaps not necessarily viewed as one of the longest drivers on Tour - not Cameron Champ levels anyway - Rickie Fowler managed this mammoth drive at this year's Scottish Open at Gullane Golf Club...

Hickory Challenge At Scottish Open

Rickie makes another appearance on this video too. Several players at the Scottish Open were keen to try out old hickory-style golf clubs and balls in a closest-the-pin challenge.

This video is filled with the good, the bad and the very ugly (in golfing terms at least)...

Luckiest Ever Golf Shots

Trawling through their archives, in this video we're treated some of the most fortunate golf shots on the European Tour in recent times.

There's flagsticks getting in the way of overcooked chip shots, sprinkler heads coming to the rescue of errant approach shots and everything in between. Our immediate thoughts...'why do we never get bounces like this?'...

Golfing Crossbar Challenge

Jon Rahm, Marcel Siem, Alexander Levy and Matt Wallace take on a golfing 'Crossbar Challenge' during Irish Open week at the stunningly picturesque Ballyliffin Golf Club back in July.

After a collection of near misses, they resort to rather questionable measures to 'succeed' in this one...

8-Year-Old With A Swing Better Than Most

This little guy stole the show during a 'beat the pro' challenge at the KLM Open earlier this year in The Netherlands. One to watch in the future without a doubt.

It's left many of us amateurs green with envy (and very impressed)...

Brandon Stone's Hole-In-One Challenge (500 Balls)

South African Brandon Stone has hit a few holes-in-one through his career but, unfortunately for him, hasn't yet managed to bag one at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City - home of the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The European Tour gave him 500 balls and challenged him to change that stat...
