Winter Storm Stella made its way up the eastern seaboard on Tuesday night bringing with it excessive snow and wind. It was a classic nor’easter and while most people were making their final preparations bracing for the storm, these two men figured it was a good time to try and get in some “urban golf” around New York City.
The guys, who are part of Barstool Sports, were on a mission to hack a tennis ball into a plastic bin around the snowy, deserted streets of Manhattan, essentially creating their own course along the way. They got off to a shaky start, because let’s be honest, who practices golf with a tennis ball in the snow with full ski gear on? But once they found their groove, they were off and running encountering all different types of lies, cars, and even the occasional police officer. Their round concluded on NYC’s signature 18th hole, right in the heart of Times Square!

Much respect for braving the elements, but spring can’t come soon enough!
