Euro Tour players enjoy hitting golf shots at powder kegs

European Tour players certainly enjoys having fun during their off days. In the past, the tour has coaxed some of its best players to skip shots off the water at a metal gong target, and hit clay pigeon targets out of the sky. But neither of those competitions hold a candle to what they did recently.

Most of us have probably tried to fire at a target in the middle of a lake, but I'd be willing to bet this is the first time a group of golfers has taken to the Moray Firth, in Scotland, to hit shots at a boat with a powder keg rigged to a bunch of fireworks.

Four European Tour players all had the opportunity to fire at the anchored boat on the water, but only one guy was able to complete the mission, and that was Frenchman Gregory Bourdy.

The guy is a multiple winner on the European Tour, but I'm pretty sure he's never reacted in that manner after sinking the winning putt. If you thought the French were boring, think again, because Bourdy goes absolutely mental after knocking it in.

To be honest, I probably would've done the same thing. These golfers are incredibly talented, but hitting to a target that small is still impressive -- especially when it keeps moving.

Maybe the game needs to consider putting fireworks in the cup for a hole-in-one. Can you imagine knocking your ball in the hole and getting your own Fourth of July display? I'm pretty sure it would get more golfers out on the course.
