Worlds largest 19th hole


MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The world’s largest amateur golf tournament wouldn’t be complete without the world’s largest 19th hole, would it? This 19th hole is the only place where you can demo the latest from Titleist while eating a BBQ sandwich, or watch a Cutter & Buck fashion show while sipping a bourbon. And if that’s not enough, there’s Ewa Laurance.

That’s right, the biggest celebrity in the room isn’t even a golfer. But that doesn’t mean people aren’t interested. Large crowds gathered around the glamorous world-champion pool player as she put on geometry-defying trick-shot demonstrations. For a $20 donation World Am participants were invited to play a game of nine-ball against Laurance. The Striking Viking, as she’s known, made quick work of just about everyone.
