The 2018 Ryder Cup will be held in France this week next year and to start the countdown team captains Jim Furyk and Thomas Bjorn have hit some golf balls off the Eiffel Tower.
Furyk and Bjorn hit shots off the Eiffel Tower to recreate Arnold Palmer’s drive off the same landmark in 1976. The shots and some great drone footage were captured and tweeted out via the Golf Channel.

It seems like Furyk and Bjorn had an incredible week meeting the French President for breakfast and dining at the Palace of Versailles. Looks like a tough gig.
