With the average European Tour golfer picking up their first golf club at the age of seven, a host of players were given the task of tackling a nearest-the-pin competition using similar clubs to the one they would have first played with.

Taking on the 133-yard seventh hole at the Northern Ireland venue, the players were given the choice of two children’s clubs to try and get as close to the flag as possible.
