Lane Wins Ponte Vecchio Challenge

Barry Lane won $51,000 of a possible $83,000 this weekend at the Ponte Vecchio Challenge in Florence, Italy.
 
The format of the event, while simple, is rather unique. Golfers tee off from a platform atop the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge and shoot towards various greens floating in the middle of the River Arno.
 
The greens were set at 98 yards, 142 yards and 186 yards. Lane managed to hit 11 of these greens.
 
Second place was awarded to Stephania Croce of Italy, while Sophie Gustafsson took third.
