Fresh off the editing room floor is the video of the recently contested 2014 Christmas Classic golf tournament. The annual Christmas Classic is held every Christmas day at River Oaks Golf Course in Sandy, Utah, snow permitting. If the course is open, the tournament is off. The tournament has been going for at least 10 years.
In this tournament a par-3 hole is picked. The hole can be a regular par-3, or like this year, one we make up. Each player brings 12 golf balls, custom marked so they can be easily identified in the snow. The closest ball to the pin is the winner.
This year we had a new competitor, Robert Lund. It was nice to have a new participant, and fantastic that Robert put his musical genius to work and quickly made up the new theme music, “The 12 Balls of Christmas.”
On the last HOG World Tour stop in the Bahamas at Sandals Resorts on the island of Exuma, I had a small window of time to do some aerial shots of Greg Norman’s golf course there. Emerald Reef is the name of the course and the back nine has some very scenic holes as you will see in the video. Unfortunately the weather was rainy and cloudy and my only window of time was late in the day. As a result the lighting is a bit dark. That said, the shots are still stunning. What a piece of property! Enjoy.
I bring to you something you may never see again in your lifetime, the #1 golfer in the world four-putting the SAME hole twice in one weekend on the PGA Tour. This is the 12th hole at this past weekend’s BMW Championship:
No need to feel sorry for the young chap though. He still made it into the field of 30 at the Tour Championship, where he will have a shot at winning $10,000,000. The final 30 field is below, minus some big notables like returning champion Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson.
