European Tour launches latest campaign on YouTube

MUMBAI: They are more accustomed to producing fireworks on the golf course, but could The European Tour‘s best golfers set alight a barrel full of gunpowder on a pirate ship in the Scottish seas with a single strike of a golf ball?

The Every Shot Imaginable campaign, which was launched today on The European Tour‘s YouTube channel, endeavoured to find out as a select number of the best golfers in Europe attempted to utilise their prodigious talents in the most bizarre of fashions.

The campaign, which previously featured Englishman David Howell striking a gong in the middle of an Irish lake and Simon Khan shooting down an airborne clay pigeon with a wedge shot in the deserts of Dubai, took to the highlands of Scotland this time around.

In a live shoot from start to finish, European Tour pros Jeev Milkha Singh of India, Spain‘s Pablo Larrazabal, Scotsman Stephen Gallacher and Grégory Bourdy of France attempted to hit a gunpowder-filled barrel placed on a fishing boat-turned pirate ship 135 yards out to sea from Fort George Castle in Inverness, Scotland.

The European Tour members Darren Clarke, Martin Kaymer, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel winning the last six Majors in a row.

But when faced with the "Gunpowder" challenge, it took hundreds of attempts before one of the Tour‘s top golfers could hit the gunpowder barrel and set the sky alight.

Speaking at the launch of the "Gunpowder" edition of the Every Shot Imaginable campaign on YouTube, Jeev Milkha Singh said, "Shooting the film was a crazy experience here in Scotland. We had more than 300 tries for the gunpowder shot before one of us hit the barrel and lit the fire-crackers. It was raining and the winds were too strong but that was the challenge and all enjoyed it.
