You may have seen the likes of Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher and jockey A.P. McCoy do it but now amateur golfers in the UK can take part in the American Golf Pressure Putt Challenge.
In a bid to keep people active and exercising, the golf store has come up with a game to test your skills and potentially get financially rewarded for it.
The rules are simple – Mark out ten 1 ft intervals on a flat surface. Get a timer and a makeshift cup as a hole to putt into.
The aim of the game is to keep putting at each interval, moving back a foot each time the ball goes in the hole.
If you miss the shot, you must go back to the 1ft mark and start again. The score recorded is the longest putt holed within 60 seconds.
Golfers are encouraged to film themself performing the challenge and share it with friends and family on social media.
To earn a shot at being the overall winner and taking up the prize of £200 American Golf vouchers, post the results to your favourite social media platform, and post a link to their video here.
Conrad Edkins, marketing director at American Golf, said: “It’s a great fun game to play but people will be amazed at the pressure you put yourself under when the clock starts ticking.
“We’ve had some participants crumble under the pressure and others that excelled.
“We want people to post links to their best efforts on our website and you can see where you are on our national leaderboards.
“But you can also set up mini-leagues with your friends and family on the Home in One site, so with an unlimited number of attempts, this could get really competitive.”
Meanwhile, Jeremy Tomlinson, chief executive officer of England Golf, expressed his delight at golfers returning to clubs around the country.
He said: “The hours since lockdown easing was announced – allowing golf to be one of the first sports to return – have been truly hectic.
“I’d like to acknowledge the amazing work that has been going on in the background to prepare for golf’s comeback.
“The reality now, of course, is that there is more hard work on the horizon.
“The financial issues raised by temporary business closure during the pandemic also means that there are tough times ahead for all clubs.
“We are not out of the woods on this one. Rest assured England Golf will do all we can to support our clubs in the weeks and months ahead.
“The media interest in golf’s return has been huge. As such, we all have an opportunity to shine a light on our game and let others see what a wonderful sport it is, and one we will never take for granted.
“There are many challenges ahead, but today is a day to be celebrated and enjoyed. Today, more than any other, it really is the taking part that counts.”
