VIDEO: Henrik Stenson tries making a putt using a digger



You don't want to be too mechanical when you're playing golf -- that is, except when you're using a piece of heavy machinery to try to make a putt.

At this week's Volvo World Match Play Championship, Swedes Henrik Stenson and Jonas Blixt were given the controls to a Volvo digger and asked to make a putt using a putter clinched in the digger's claws.

In this footage from the European Tour, Stenson gives it a shot and lips out for the make. Too bad for Stenson, but he did advance to the knockout round at The London Golf Club, so he's got that going for him.
