After the excitement of the Ryder Cup, Londoners and visitors can see some of world’s leading golfers tee up for an innovative one-hole shootout in Canary Wharf. Some of the world’s leading players including Justin Rose will tee it up for this one-hole shootout, where they will hit the ball from a floating tee into a specially constructed floating green in South Dock amongst the skyscrapers in one of London’s main financial districts.
The exciting one-hole shootout called the Hero Challenge will act as the prelude to the Sky Sports British Masters, which takes place at Walton Heath Golf Club and will be hosted by World Number Two Justin Rose.
Joining Rose in Canary Wharf will be fellow Ryder Cup star Thorbjørn Olesen, the winning European Captain Thomas Bjørn, English duo Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston and Matt Wallace, as well as Irishman Paul Dunne – the defending Sky Sports British Masters Champion.
This is a fun and atmospheric opportunity to see some of the world’s top golf pros in action, the first 2018 edition of the Hero Challenge took place at Edinburgh Castle in July and was won by American Matt Kuchar.
For those looking for more golf action, the Sky Sports British Masters takes place between the 11th – 14th October 2018 at Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey. Walton Heath Golf Club which is an hour away from Central London was founded in 1903 and has two top class 18-hole golf courses.
