Golf Australia Express : GA Express 226
I T WAS the shot that shook the ground and launched the tournament’s “party hole” into the stratosphere. The par-3 16th party hole was already quite the phenomenon in 1997 (though nothing like the corporate monster it is today), yet it became something else entirely when Tiger Woods beamed a laser into the cup after a couple of bounces. The crowd went ballistic, Woods went nuts and the hole was forever etched into PGA Tour folklore. THAT TIGER WOODS ACE F OR all the golfers bemoaning the fact that they’ve never managed an ace, this won’t make you feel any better. Some geniuses built a golf- playing robot named LDRIC and brought him to last year’s tournament. They set him up at the par-3 16th and let him do his thing. It took four shots to nail the first hole-in-one. We’re all doomed. ROBOT HITS HOLE-IN-ONE WATCH IT HERE WATCH IT HERE I T DIDN’T take long for the PGA Tour to kill off this buzz, but in 2013 the crowd at the 16th was treated to caddie races. One race in particular was probably the highlight of the week, with two bagmen going stride for stride in the race to the green before launching themselves in one last attempt to get there first. WATCH IT HERE CADDIE RACES... WHILE THEY LASTED
