Golf won't make its return to the Summer Game until 2016, but that didn't stop adidas Golf spokesmen Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia from kicking off the 2012 Olympics in style by hitting balls to a floating green on London's River Thames. (Earlier this year at the U.S. Open, TaylorMade did a similar campaign where they had Dustin Johnson hit drives from inside AT&T Park into McCovey Cove.)
With the iconic Tower Bridge in the background, both players had three attempts to hit the green and managed to hit the floating target every time.
After spending the week grinding at Royal Lytham and St Annes, it would appear as if Johnson and Garcia enjoyed the change of scenery and the chance to take aim at a target that didn't have a pot bunker nearby.
