We gave Andy Sullivan 500 attempts to try and make a hole-in-one in the latest instalment of our ‘Chase the Ace’ series – but how has the video been received by the public?
Celebrities, athletes, fans, politicians and other professional golfers have all taken to social media to share their views on the six-minute clip, which sees the Englishman openly vent his frustrations as he repeatedly comes close to holing out at the 171-yard par three 11th on the Heritage Course at London Golf Club.
If you don’t want to find out how he fares stop reading now…
Otherwise, sit back and re-live the challenge via a selection of the best feedback!

The lad’s a living legend!!!! https://t.co/2KjCWYjgxQ— Paul Waring (@PaulWaringGolf) April 24, 2019
I love these videos. Kinda captures the emotional rollercoaster that is golf. Sully has one of my favorite swings. Effortless power. He hits some great shots here and felt like his temperament was in a nice spot to get it done, but that’s gets tested.... https://t.co/7qfqw6IAtG— Graeme McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell) April 24, 2019
Next time you play ‘guess the silhouette player’ on here, can you instead play ‘guess which swear word Andy Sullivan uses?’ I mean, I think the ultimate was thrown in there at one point 👏🏼— Eddie Pepperell (@PepperellEddie) April 24, 2019

Best Twitter video I think I’ve ever watched!— Golfers Choice (@GolfersChoiceUK) April 24, 2019
Well done @andysulligolf, if that doesn’t put a smile on a golfers face I don’t know what will.
@andysulligolf you will not remeber me at Purley Chase I was a young assistant pro, however you clearly picked up my vernacular with the outbursts!!— Matt Foley (@MrMattF17) April 24, 2019
Absolutely love Sully you f*****g beauty💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Have a fantastic season😉
One of the best things I’ve seen in a while. Thank you for this. Rooted for Andy before this and will def be pulling for him more now. Good stuff!— Travis Baker (@tjbphotographs) April 25, 2019
This is awesome. Great to see a Pro react in the same way I would. I'd possibly swear more though !— Matthew Marsh (@mattymarsh1889) April 24, 2019
