When in China. ???????? https://t.co/ab5QMgwRPL

The European Tour took its golfers to The Great Wall of China in preparation for the Volvo China Open this week. Having stood there for over 2,000 years it seems appropriate that golf’s ultimate godfather should be bestowed with the honour of taking a divot out of the ancient structure. He didn’t disappoint!
“It’s amazing to come here to this beautiful wonder of the world. It makes you feel unbelievable standing here. It’s one of the nicest things I’ve ever experienced in my career.”
This reminded us of another legend who had permission to give zero shits.
In case you’re not familiar with the man, the myth, the legend.
Jimenez has slotted home a record 10 hole-in-ones on the European Tour, the outcome of hitting lower shots that have little spin. He is proof that some golfers age like a fine wine, now 52 he is a force to be reckoned with on the Champions Tour. “The Mechanic” as he is know, comfortably makes our list of top five golfers you would invite to dinner.
Although Bubba Watson was not included in this group, I doubt Jimenez is getting paid the same $1.5 Million appearance fee as the America.
