Charl Schwartzel has had a terrific career, winning 15 times worldwide, including his amazing Masters victory in 2011. Hee can add another little achievement to his list; hitting a golf shot from his hotel room balcony.

Who needs a driving range anyway? Schwartzel did this during the Nedbank Golf Challenge and, as expected, nailed it to perfection.

Hitting from rooms in homes, and hotel rooms seem to be the hit new thing. Maybe more hotels should have more golf friendly rooms?

I can see it now. You’ll have your usual smoke friendly and non-smoker friendly rooms, and then you’ll have the golf-friendly rooms. The golf happy room could feature a balcony with a lower railing so it can be easier to hit shots.

There also could be a hidden cap somewhere on the floor where, if you lift it up, it will become a golf cup for you to putt your heart out. Of course, this all would never happen, plus I’m only joking anyway (well, the putting idea may still be cool though).

Since I’ll never be as accurate as Charl, I would never try such a shot. I think I’ll just stick with the ol’ putty buddy (putter). Hotel hallway putting contest anyone?
