WATCH: Miguel Angel Jimenez hit a golf ball on the Great Wall of China


Miguel Angel Jimenez may be getting older, but that doesn't mean the Spaniard is any less cool. In fact, maybe more so.

And he showed that cool on Tuesday in a promotional stunt for this week's Volvo China Open on the European Tour. The Mechanic went to the Great Wall of China, dropped a ball on the brick and picked it clean, sending it into airspace.

There is nothing easy about trying to pick a golf ball off a stone surface, but leave it to a professional who successfully ricocheted his ball of the Road Hole wall at St. Andrews to show us how its done.

Jimenez enjoyed his best European Tour finish of the season last week at the Shenzhen International, with a T-13 effort.
