WATCH: Jeff Overton drills 94-foot putt at Indiana basketball game

 

This is pretty cool. Jeff Overton, who’s an Indiana University alumni, took the challenge of trying to sink a 94-foot putt at the Assembly Hall during an IU basketball game.

 

He drilled the putt, and he won a fan a trip to Myrtle Beach, one of the world’s most iconic golf destinations. We’ve seen pros putt on basketball courts before but it never gets old.

 

Putting on such a hard slick surface has to be a challenge, but it makes all the more fun. But, Overton is a former Ryder Cupper for a reason, because he’s got the skills.



 

Although he has never won a PGA Tour tournament, for at least a two-year period, he was one of the better players on tour, with multiple top 10 finishes between 2010 and 2011. As mentioned, he made the Ryder Cup in 2010, becoming the only American to make the team without winning a PGA Tour title.

 

Rickie Fowler, who also was on the team at the time, didn’t win a tournament yet either until 2012 when he broke through at the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. Overton, like Fowler, became a fan favorite, and there’s no doubt that the Hoosier fans were excited to see him nail that miraculous putt.

 

Keep that putting stroke strong Jeff!
