VIDEO: Tiger Woods hits ball from Europe to Asia
Tiger Woods is set to tee off on Thursday in Turkey for the Turkish Airlines Open, but he made a stop along the way first.
The world number one stood on the Bosphorous Bridge this afternoon in Istanbul and teed one up, hitting over the Bosphorous Strait, which connects Europe and Asia. According to the Telegraph, people were not happy:
The Bosphorus Bridge was closed during one of the busiest times of the day for traffic, prompting outrage from local residents, as thousands of people lined up to watch Woods hit the ball over the bridge from Europe into Asia.
Considering Tiger’s right rough tendency stats in 2013 placed him 142nd on the PGA Tour, I probably would have tried to avoid the other side of the bridge too.
