‘Tennis Emperor’ Djokovic, also a ‘good shot’ at golf… One-on success in par 4 hole

 Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia), the 24-time Grand Slam winner and the ‘Emperor of Tennis,’ showed off his golf skills by participating in the Ryder Cup All-Star Match, a men’s golf competition between the United States and Europe. On the first hole, he appeared mischievous, holding a tennis racket and pretending to hit a tee shot.

Djokovic participated in the Ryder Cup pre-event all-star match held at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Rome, Italy on the 28th (Korean time).

According to the Associated Press and Reuters, Djokovic pretended to swing a golf ball while holding a tennis racket in his hand before taking out the driver in the first hole. He added, “Actually, I think this would be better for me.”

However, Djokovic was not only skilled in tennis but also in golf. He hit the tee shot and second shot perfectly in the first hole (par 4), leaving a 5m birdie putt, and easily recorded par with two putts.

The highlight was the 16th hole (par 4). Djokovic, who succeeded in getting one-on in a 260-yard short hole where he could hit the green with one tee shot, even celebrated by jumping with his arms outstretched, like Cristiano Ronaldo in soccer.

“It was truly an honor and a golden opportunity for him to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Djokovic said after the match. “Thank you to the many fans who came out to put more pressure on us on the first tee,” he joked, adding, “It was a unique experience. “Obviously it’s much easier to hit a tennis ball with a racket, but today wasn’t too bad,” he said.스포츠토토

Regarding the one-on situation on the 16th hole, “I tried to play safely, but the crowd made me do that. “It was the best shot I’ve ever hit.” He said, “I’ve never played golf in front of so many people, so considering the situation, I played pretty well.”

In addition to Djokovic, soccer stars Andriy Shevchenko (Ukraine), Gareth Bale (Wales), and F1 Carlos Sainz (Spain) participated in the All-Star Game.

Djokovic also plans to watch the first round of the Ryder Cup starting on the 29th. He revealed that he is also close friends with golf star Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland). Djokovic said, “We have been friends for over 10 years, ever since McIlroy became engaged to tennis player Caroline Wozniacki. “We are close friends and I will support Europe,” he said.
