Amateur golfers often dream about the chance to play on the biggest stage, but would they could cope against the European Tour stars?
This week's Lyoness Open has offered the chance for local golfers the chance to mix it with the pros by going head to head in a nearest-the-pin challenge at Diamond Country Club's par-three 18th.
Although some of the amateurs safely negotiated the water hazard and the spectators to find the green, others let their nerves get the better of them in comical fashion.
One player making a mess of his tee shot when getting his chance to shine in front of the cameras was the golf course's head greenkeeper, who saw his unorthodox swing go the complete opposite direction to what was planned!
