Picture: Golf course in China offers $1M for ace.

Getting a hole-in-one in golf is one of the hardest things to accomplish in sports. For some, it’s happened numerous times. Well what if I told you that you could win $1 million just for getting an ace? Sounds easy right?

Wrong. There’s a course in China that would love to give you one mill for an ace however, it’s on one of the toughest holes you’ll ever see. Not only is it a very difficult shot, it’s also one of the most beautiful things you’ll ever see in your lifetime. Can you handle the pressure?

Here’s the picture of it:

Whoa, wh-WOAH! So. Flippin. BEAUTIFUL!!

Whoa, wh-WOAH! So. Flippin. BEAUTIFUL!!

So what do you think? Do you think you could pull it off? Maybe get it close? Or would you get distracted by the heights and the beautiful scenery? Leave YOUR thoughts in the comments below!

PHOTOS: This Golf Hole is Absolutely Insane

Man…and you thought Legends Golf and Safari Resort had the craziest hole. Well, that would be incorrect as New Zealand has rivaled the “Extreme 19th” of Safari Resort. This hole in New Zealand is 4,500 feet above sea level and has a whopping 1,476 foot drop from the tee.

This a larger drop than the aforementioned Extreme 19th in South Africa. Over the Top Helicopters and Eric Faesenkloet who owns New Zealand’s Golf Warehouse teamed up to make this happen.

The helicopters take you to the top of the tee which looks both awesome and terrifying. Then you whip out your driver and take a super, mega, ultra, veins popping out your skin type swing while screaming because this baby is a long 311 yard par-3.

Therefore, this swing requires a lot of power. You tee off from Cecil Peak, one of the more beautiful mountains in New Zealand. This hole is located in the Southern Alps on South Island while overlooking Queenstown.

So, if you want a true golf test, well, golf dream chasers rejoice because this is a golf experience that you will never forget for the rest of your life! Now get out there and tee it up!

OH MY!

OH MY!

Nice swing!

Nice swing!

Dat impact!

Dat impact!

OH MY GOSH! It's so freakin' BEAUTIFULL!

OH MY GOSH! It’s so freakin’ BEAUTIFULL!

PICTURE: One of the coolest golf carts ever made gets sold on Ebay and the price may surprise you

[twitter-follow username=”ChiGolfRadio” scheme=”dark”]

What you’re about to see ladies and gentlemen is probably one of the coolest golf carts ever made. Now, I’m not a big comic book super hero kind of dude but I have mad respect for Batman and Robin. They are classic and unique heroes and do all of the amazing things they do without any real superpowers. Another thing they had were iconic vehicles and the Batman Tumbler is arguably the most iconic. See, where I’m going here? Below is a picture of a golf cart that looks very similar to the Tumbler itself.

Batman-Tumbler-Golf-Cart-1

Probably the most amazing thing about this cart is that it was sold on Ebay for nearly $20,000 at $17,500 after it cost $30,000 to create it. It even has tuned batteries making the cart reach nearly 40 mph so prepare yourselves golfers!

Batman-Tumbler-Golf-Cart-3

I can only imagine what it looks like on the course. I’d probably be kind of terrified I mean, look at it! All it needs a live radio so I jam to some hip hop and R&B or listen to sports talk radio! Sarcasm aside, this is a very cool cart and it’s definitely one that would make any die-hard Batman fan who’s a golfer very happy. So what do you guys think? How about the price it sold for? Good price or bad price? Do you think it’s worth much more than the $17,500? As always, you can let me know in the comments!

A GP Golf Report Quickie: Simple Tips for Good Putting

Ben Crenshaw is Widely Considered the Greatest Putter of All-Time.

An Example of a Mallet Putter. This is the Same Exact Putter I Use by Top Flite.

Hey all, as we know, putting is the most important aspect of golf but is also one of the trickiest especially when you’re facing tough greens. Don’t you want to feel good after making a beautiful long putt as the ball rolls into the cup? Of course you do! Here are some basic things to know when on the greens. First off, and this is a no brainer, always try to read the greens to see where the slope is on the green so that way you get where you need to aim your putt. This doesn’t guarantee that you make the putt but you will likely get it close with the right amount if touch. Another thing I found out that was good is trying to take a shorter backswing on your putting stroke so this way, you don’t accidentally move your hands which will take your backswing off plane.

While taking this short backswing, make sure your follow through is longer since you had a shorter backswing and this will help on longer putts. This is why mallet looking putters have the line on the top of them to help you line up your putt and to keep your stroke on line on your follow through. Finally, it’s always a good strategy to aim past the hole because if you are just aiming directly at the hole, then you may hit it too soft, coming up short, after all, putting is a state of mind. When you aim past the hole then your mind will tell you to hit past the hole which will give you enough power to hit a putt that will roll right in the cup but aim just right behind the hole, not way past the hole.
