I challenged a HEAD PRO at HIS OWN course (£1000 MATCH)

  • Published on May 11, 2022
  • I challenged a head pro to a £1000 match at his own course! With big money on the line and huge local crowd following us both, this proved to be one of the greatest (and most nerve-wracking) matches I've ever played in...
    Big thanks to head pro Andy (@andyhumpgolf) for making this happen and make sure to check out Aberdovey GC (@AberdoveyGC) on social media.

      Woodhall spa in lincolnshire, the Hotchkin course still in the top 100 in the world, used to be no 8 back in the day, cracking course.

      Could see Andy's shank coming as the round went on -- he started aiming more and more right of target every hole, when his alignment was correct he was puring it.

      Totally agree with Phillip, sticking to "grass-root" courses where us tube watching golfers reside is the way to go. Great seeing the nerves on display and the locals out applauding. Great concept.

    Loving this format. Real competition, real crowd pressure, quality opponents and a lovely course. What's not to love!? Would definitely like a whole series.

      @Rees Britton To anyone else following this conversation, other than the AV snob, I watched every second of the video and enjoyed it immensely. I was just hoping Peter didn’t throw the match, but his opponent getting into the ditch on 18 made that impossible even if he was thinking about it .

  • Chris Moff
    Chris Moff 15 days ago +103

    Absolutely love this!!! Great idea for a series - bring it on! The only thing which I think would make it better is a bit more of an intro to the Club Pro and the course history 🙂

    • Rapid Recovery
      Rapid Recovery 14 days ago +2

      Fabulous idea about the intro. It felt like much more than a TheXvid video, but still kept that TheXvid character to it. This was smashing and your idea would be a big bonus.

  • N Holmes
    N Holmes 9 days ago +18

    Peter, this is the best video you’ve ever made. Do more just like this. Love watching both of you respond to the pressure of the crowd.

  • Rapid Recovery
    Rapid Recovery 15 days ago +25

    This is one of my favorite Peter Finch Golf videos yet. There was the right amount of stress because it was a competition, but still you could feel Pete and Andy rooting for each other to play well. The crowd added something but wasn't so big that it took away from being able to be "up close" with the players. I really loved the touch of the on-course announcer. A series like this for charity would be epic... and lastly, you might not realize it Pete, but that putt to win the match, with its tension and importance, is in your mental bag now and that's going to help you when it's time to qualify for The Open. Well done to all involved.

  • adam pattison
    adam pattison 13 days ago +25

    LOVED the video!
    As someone has already said I think an intro to club, history and the pro would be a fantastic addition. With the extras included I reckon 2 x 9 hole videos coming out in the same week would be mega.

    I live in the USA and appreciate that I can watch a match like this on an authentic links course, with live comments from the players. In fact, I turned off the Byron Nelson to watch this, and enjoyed it much more. It's much more granular and real. Thanks to you for presenting this. Your idea will work!

  • hungriest hippo
    hungriest hippo 15 days ago +4

    Wow! I feel like this was a more intense watch than most tour golf...
    I've never seen this particular level of golf up so close and personal. By which I mean not tour players (no offence) but top level ams duelling it out.
    Challenging course obviously, but some key reminders for us higher handicappers that golf is hard, and we shouldn't beat ourselves up on the course so much.
    Genuinely inspirational, in that it made me want to get straight out on the course!
    More of this content please!!!

    Great video Pete and team! Aside from the tight competition I was hugely impressed with the production and videography. Best I have seen on a TheXvid production! Give your team a pat on the back and shout them dinner with the thousand pound win! Brilliant all round!
