Golf's stars take part in unique event at Zurich Classic


Ever wondered how well the biggest names in golf would fare if they were forced to give up their state-of-the-art clubs in the place of those more familiar to the likes of Bobby Jones and Sam Snead? If you answered 'yes', it seems you're not the only one.

To celebrate 100 years of doing business in the USA, event sponsors of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans set up a unique challenge that saw today's leading professionals peg it up for three holes with hickory equipment.

Our friends at Golfing World TV went along to film the proceedings. Click on the video above to see how well the players performed.
