Video: Senior Class Project Nine For Nine Putts

Thanks to everyone who sent in this video from the PGA Golf Management program at Campbell University where this month's "test" was apparently a competition between the different classes to see how many people could line up and make a putt at the same time.

The clip apparently got picked up by ESPN SportsNation.

How deep is that hole?

Love to know how many tries it took!

Saw it on tv, they said it took something like 25 tries, and they took the cup out of the hole (?) to make it larger.

If you figure the first guy has a 90% chance of making it, and the last guy 10%, with 10% increments in between, the chance of making all 9 is .0109%. Or 1 in 9185. Roughly -- I'm sure Dave Pelz has done a study on nine guys putting into one hole.

Very original, and very cool.

Not one belly putter, what gives? I thought the usga says every one is using one.

Looks like the Euro Ryder team on a Sunday.

If they'd been smart, they'd have put two green strings on the ground as guides. As it was, I'm guessing they grooved a track.

Someone should do one with pitches and chips, say into one basket or something like that.
