The Longest Hole - The Finale

Former Hong Kong rugby player Adam Rolston and caddie-friend Ron Rutland have finished the longest hole in golf after 80 days and 20,093 shots across Mongolia. Rolston rolled in a tricky eight-foot putt on the 18th green of the Mt Bogd Golf Club in Ulaanbaatar, to bring to an end the strangest hole in golfing history.…

“As a golfer, 3-putt is something you try to avoid like the plague. Imagine hitting golf balls continuously for 80 days and only having one opportunity to putt… The thoughts of "what happens if I 3-putt after all this 80-DAY OF WORK" really bothered me. Finally, you got there, facing with a 45- footer which slides past the cup by 8 feet. Now, everything you have imagined is happening. You now have that 8-footer just like your nightmares. And then to say "F**k this" and hole it in front of 200 to 300 people watching feels just like winning a Major! Tiger fist pump to see it in! I will take that feeling to the grave!”
