VIDEO: U.S. Walker Cup team performs a relay race with a ball and their putters


On the eve of their matches against Great Britain and Ireland, the U.S. Walker Cup showed off its teamwork and camaraderie with a little golf trick.

Nine of the 10 team members stood in a line, equidistant apart, on the practice green at match host Royal Lytham and St. Annes. The first player putted the ball toward the next, who putted it further down the line to the third player, and so on until the last guy has to hit the money putt to complete the relay...and he drains it.

Of course, since it's a sort-of trick-shot video, there's a lot of high-fiving and celebratory finger pointing, but it's a pretty cool trick. However, even though it is the American team, it's still not as cool of a trick as the nine guys who hit putts of varying length in line at the same time and made them all.

Your move, GB&I.
