WATCH: Robot aces TPC Scottsdale’s 16th hole

The 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale is one of the most exciting holes in golf and loudest spots in sports and to get the crowd crazy yet again, Gene Parente of Golf Laboratories Inc had an idea.

He created a robot named “LDRIC” to try to recreate Tiger Woods’ famous hole-in-one at the 16th back in 1997 (The robot is named after Woods’ real name of “Eldrick”), a time when nobody exactly knew what Woods would become. The attempt by LDRIC was a success and the crowd went nuts.

Maybe remote control robot golf is next? Actually, remember the new video game that’s coming out called 100ft Robot Golf?

Yeah, that’ll do.
