2016 12 Bernd Wiesberger1

We all know professional golfers – especially those on the European Tour – carve out a serious amount of air miles over the course of a year.

And Bernd Wiesberger, in a picture he posted to Twitter, revealed that he spent almost two weeks of his 2016 on a plane – with a total of 55 separate flights.

The Austrian, who finished his season with five top fives in his last seven starts, visited every continent apart from Africa (and obviously not Antarctica) during the year – including trips to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and to Melbourne for the World Cup of Golf.
