Cyprus Open: Callum Shinkwin lands drive in paper lunch bag


Callum Shinkwin takes his second shot on the 18th
Shinkwin still made a birdie despite his memorable drive

Finding water from the tee has taken on a whole new meaning for Callum Shinkwin.

The English golfer, 27, hit a shot he will be recounting for years on the 18th hole at the Cyprus Open on Thursday, landing his drive in a paper bag containing cans of water.

After hitting a tree, the ball plopped down into the lunch bag – belonging to a spotter – which was sat at the base of tree.

After jokingly pretending to take his second shot while the ball was still in the bag, Shinkwin was given a free drop.

And, undeterred by landing – literally – in the drink, he went on to make a birdie, his seventh of the day.

Shinkwin finishes day one of the tournament in Paphos tied on four under par.
