Most Challenging Hole in Golf – It’s JUST a Par 3!

30 03 2010

Most Challenging Hole in Golf

Forget pitch and putt – this tee-off point on top of a 1,410 ft. mountain in South Africa it is the longest hole and the hardest golf shot in the world.

More than $1 million awaits the player who can score a hole in one.

Players must take a helicopter to the top to play the longest and highest par three on the planet.

Taking the shot also requires courage. A player needs to teeter terrifyingly close to the edge of the mammoth hillside.

Indeed, the Extreme 19th Hole is so high the ball takes almost 30 seconds to reach the ground.

Channel Nine cricket commentator Mark Nicholas recently joined an elite list to have the shot in just three swings. “It was awesome, riveting and phenomenal,” he said, “it’s like the end of the world when you get up there and it’s an awful lot of fun. It’s such an adrenaline rush taking the helicopter up and then rushing back down.”

The hole is based at the Legends Golf and Safari Resort, within the Entabeni Safari Conservancy
in South Africa ’s Northeastern Limpopo Province .

The other 18 holes were designed by world golfing legends including Trevor Immelman, Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington and Australia ’s Robert Allenby.

A round of golf – including a buggy and lunch – will set you back R450 ($70).

The Extreme 19th cost is $1060 per four balls, that includes helicopter ride, souvenir cap, glove, and a DVD of you playing the hole.

So far, no one has even come close pocketing the million-dollar prize, but Harrington became the first golfer to conquer the hole within par.

Harrington said, “This is the type of innovation and excitement we need to get more people playing golf. There aren’t many new innovative ways to play the game but this is certainly one of the best. I think this hole is awesome. I love the whole experience, the helicopter, the views, the drama and having the green
the shape of Africa . And now I’ve got bragging rights over all the other professionals who have played this hole and not managed to make a three. I love everything about it.”

He also said “do not Tell Tiger about this hole, as he is in enough trouble already”!!

Tokyo/Glow

10 03 2010

THIS IS SUPER COOL, especially since I was just there!  Great collabo between Tokyo and Toronto!  Check out the deets:

A branded short film for The Generic Man by Industry Films and Citizen Jones.

Written and directed by Jonathan Bensimon and produced by Jonas Bell Pasht, Tokyo/Glow follows the nighttime journey of an illuminated man from a crosswalk sign as he embarks on an adventure through the streets of Tokyo. Shot on location throughout Tokyo using thousands of individual digital stills, the short film features original music by indie rock band Kidstreet, who recently signed with Nettwerk Records and will be releasing their debut album worldwide in 2010.

To achieve the striking effect of the illuminated man, an original light suit was constructed using hundreds of feet of high-voltage LED rope lights and a translucent nylon outer shell. Michael Lambermont, executive producer at Alter Ego in Toronto, oversaw the effects-heavy post-production process, which included weeks of extensive rotoscoping and compositing in the facility’s two Flame suites, plus a final colour grade, once the effects were complete. Geoff Ashenhurst, editor at Stealing Time, was charged with bringing the thousands of digital stills to life with director Bensimon.
