So close yet so far away!

In association with Adidas Golf, the below jaw-dropping 3D anamorphic pavement art was painted by Joe Hill at last year’s Barclays PGA Tour. To add more spice, Sergio Garcia was present as a little promotion for adidas, preparing to “chip” out of a “bunker” at a “hole”. The painting reminds us of the Xtreme 19th hole in the Legend Golf, South Africa. But definitely an amazing one!
