A group of European Tour golfers took on the DP World Tour Championship Atlantis Golf Challenge, which was pretty entertaining to watch. The golfers went up to the 22nd floor of the Atlantis Hotel and tried to hit the ball onto the green that was in the water.

The green was nine meters by five meters, so you can imagine just how tough it was to hit from 90 meters up in the air.

Participants included David Howell, Martin Kaymer, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson and Lee Westwood. In the end, Westwood came away with the victory after his ball landed just four feet from the flag.

Thanks to the European Tour for the video.
