Golfers Aim for Floating Keg on Vltava to Open Czech Masters

This year’s D+D Real Czech Masters tournament began yesterday at the Albatross Golf Resort in Prague, but organizers arranged for a little something special on Wednesday to kick off the festivities.

During a promotional hole-in-one round, golfers took shots into the Vltava from a tee set up on Kampa, a short distance from Charles Bridge.

Their goal? A par-three keg set up on a floating dock in the middle of the river.

US star John Daly, known for his love of beer, seemed pleased with the event:

While no golfers scored a keg-in-one, UK’s Andy Sullivan hit won the event by hitting a ball closest to the beer barrel.

His prize? A year’s supply of Pilsner Urquell.
