Boxing legend Carl Froch was keen to savour the atmosphere on the opening day of The 147th Open at Carnoustie and made a quick stop at The Open Zone to demonstrate his golfing ability.
Former super-middleweight world champion Froch memorably fought in front of 80,000 people at Wembley Stadium against George Groves but now has much more time to improve his golf game.
Froch, who plays off 18, spoke of how he is getting his son Rocco to start playing but suggested he was a fair-weather golfer.
The 99-yard challenge has been a source of great competition between professionals and guests alike this week and Froch was the next to take it on.
Froch, aiming to improve on Jordan Pickford’s effort, opted for a nine iron but would he test the leaderboard with a nine iron in hand?
Watch the video above to see how Froch would fare in the 99-yard challenge…
