Aside from the relaxing resort-like atmosphere, living at Pebble Beach means you can spend time perfecting your putt on the estate’s putting green while enjoying fresh air, sunshine and sea views. Even if golf is not your game it’s certainly thrilling to see the golfing pros of the world knock a tiny little ball into a hole from hundreds of metres away! Here are some of the most unbelievable golf shots of the last decade.
Tiger Woods – European Tour
In a feat that almost defies belief, Woods manages to bounce the ball across a body of water, to land on the green, move past the pin and then curve round and drop perfectly into the hole.
Rory McIlroy – The Honda Classic
Setting up his shot from the left side of the green, McIlroy has his work cut out for him, even the commentators are heard saying that this is a challenging position to be in. From 235 yards (roughly 215 metres) away, and in one smooth move, the ball flies gracefully over the water to land only centimetres away from the hole – you could say, the eagle has landed.
Charl Schwartzel – Volvo Golf Champions
The greats of the golfing world possess not only skill but immense confidence too. In this incredible shot, Schwartzel blindly hits the ball from a tar road and over the line of trees, to land the ball perfectly for a birdie or an eagle.
Golf is known for being a game of skill and patience, and the golf masters of the world didn’t get where they are without hours of practice. Either way, practice makes perfect, and you can hone your swing in the comfort and safety of the estate. The putting green also gives you the opportunity to teach your kids the art of the sport or challenge their concentration to get the ball in the hole as quickly, and smoothly as possible.
