“Normal flight.” Golf in the air

Can the refined aristocrat, a lover of social pleasures in the depths of the soul to be desperate extreme, hungry for height and adrenaline? Yes it can! – say the participants of a unique competition in Golf in the air, which was held in the Moscow region.

The competition included 3 sports: helicopter, Golf and Polo. Players had to score a huge ball with a diameter of 1 m in improvised holes from a 5-meter height, while in a helicopter. As a stick used 4-meter bamboo stick with a hammer at the end. The weight of such unusual “instruments” amounted to only 5-6 kg, so for players of any danger and inconvenience it was not. All the action took place on a snow-covered field.

As noted by one of the organizers of the event Julia Khvastunova, “the idea of holding such an unusual competition came spontaneously. Each of the participants had Golf experience and flying experience. But to combine these skills turned out to be a very original idea.”
The main difficulty for the players was the need not only to deftly hit the ball, but also, at the same time, to play the role of Navigator, as the pilot of the ball is not visible.

According to the pilot, master of sports Vadim Sazonov, in the course of the competition, he used various elements of piloting techniques: low-altitude flights, aerobatics and others.

Territory for games borrowed from earthly golfers and implemented all measures to preserve the fields for the summer season.

In order for helicopters to maintain a safe distance, the track was specially measured, made markings and put the gate.

Participants tried to use many traditional techniques of Golf, but in these conditions they were useless: the flow of air from the helicopter forced the ball to roll at times faster than the set pace.

But bright emotions from this mix of sports directions players saved up until the summer.
