Jamie Donaldson recreates Ryder Cup-winning shot

JAMIE DONALDSON | RYDER CUP

Remember Jamie Donaldson’s Ryder Cup-winning shot at Gleneagles in September 2014? Sure you can, it’s impossible to forget.


Well earlier this year, the Welshman returned to the 15th fairway at the PGA Centenary Course as a plaque was presented to him in honour of that 146-yard wedge shot, and he attempted to replicate the shot on two occasions.

His first attempt, which can be seen below, landed about 8-10ft from the pin, while his second effort, which we typically didn’t film, was almost a carbon copy of that which saw off Keegan Bradley and handed Team Europe the Ryder Cup amid wild celebrations.

Check out the video below, while we also caught up with Donaldson as he showed us how to play wedge shots under pressure!
