Mini-Golf Open: Kids match turned into pro event
A kids mini-golf game in America got a considerable upgrade recently, when the guys from Improv Everywhere decided it should be treated the same as a pro event.
The serial pranksters had worked with ESPN to pull the stunt with involved surprising young golfers on Pier 25 in Lower Manhattan with caddies, an ESPN camera crew, and a huge crowd.
Improv Everywhere even had the Claret Jug from The Open Championship to present to the winner of the suddenly serious mini-golf contest. Not a replica, the actual jug that's been held by all of the Open champions.
The stunt - which was used to surprise five groups of golfers throughout the day - even saw commentators sitting at a desk and describing the action.
