Week 4 – Let’s play

Watch this very short video to see where the ball is. Say correctly how you would play the shot and you could win a bottle of Art de Vignes wine.

This week we’re at The Legend 4th hole, Par 5. It’s a lob shot, 20m to the flag with the wind coming from the right.

Watch the video first, then choose the option you think is correct.

Come back on Friday 30 November to watch a Constance Pro play all the options and see if you won. Those who stated correctly which shot gets closest to the flag will be entered into a prize draw with the winner announced on that day.
