Timeframe: swing on the wing of an Etihad plane
It is possibly one of the most unusual spots for a golf lesson
It is probably one of the most unique spots ever for a golf lesson.
The year was 2006 and a new tournament was about to take off in Abu Dhabi.
On the wing of an Etihad jetliner at Abu Dhabi airport, golf legends Ian Poulter and Paul Casey give an impromptu lesson to one lucky competition winner.
Poulter later beat Casey in an unofficial longest drive contest when both of them hit balls from the wing down the runway.
More than 10 years on, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship is back in town this week at Abu Dhabi Golf Club.
Two-time winner Casey and Poulter will be facing off again – but this time only on the course, the only wings in sight belonging to the famed club falcon.
