Although this was a week ago, I just found the European Tour’s Hero Challenge to be such a fresh idea. To aim of the tournament is to get as close to the pin as possible on a 156-yard par-3.
It takes places under the lights, with flames shooting up after every swing. It’s about as awesome and unique of a way you can ever play golf.
Plus, it’ll be appealing to the younger audiences. Besides, aren’t we tired of the ol’ “golf is boring” narrative? This event makes golf stand out more, while still featuring the pureness of the game. Let’s hope all of the tours can come up with cool ideas like this more often.

Be sure to follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio! I wish flames can shoot up after shanks at the driving range!
