London, July 13(ANI): Ace golfer Rory McIlroy demonstrated his skills by playing crossbar challenge with a golf club and golf ball, as he prepares for this week’s Scottish Open and next week’s Open Championship.
The crossbar challenge has been made famous by the Sky Sports Saturday morning football show Soccer AM, and the object of the exercise is simply to kick a football, from distance, to hit the crossbar, The Daily Mirror reports.
But seeing as McIlroy is a golfer and not a footballer, he’s taken his own approach to the test, opting to aim for the goal frame using a golf club and a golf ball, and rather than hitting a ball 50 yards, McIlroy had to land his golf ball on the crossbar from 150 yards.
While McIlroy opted for some unusual pre-tournament preparations, most players simply prefer to play a few practice rounds. (ANI)
