The wild man of AFL, Barry Hall, has added another glittering prize to his trophy case.
Hall pushed aside NRL icon Mat Rogers and Olympic speed skating gold medallist Steven Bradbury to take first place in Celebrity Holey Moley on Sunday evening.
“This is a big achievement,” said the retired professional AFL player, who celebrated his win with a backward somersault into the Polcano pool. “I’m very proud.”
Big, bad Barry’s victory in the extreme mini golf showdown followed a dramatic incident on Frankenputt earlier in the night when entertainment icon, Denise Drysdale, tripped on the course during her head-to-head battle with Bradbury.
Sustaining a shoulder injury, Ding Dong was treated by medics and was forced to leave the competition immediately, graciously handing the win to Bradbury by default.
“Can you believe it? Arm in a sling!” said Drysdale, as she was wheeled from the course. “Steven, I’m out!” Celebrity Holey Moley commentator Matt Shirvington quickly chimed in with: “Bradbury has pulled another Bradbury!”
Monday night, in a world first, Holey Moley Junior will turn the spotlight on eight of Australia’s brightest golfing prodigies as they battle it out across three wild of rounds of mini golf madness.
The competitive kids are chasing the ultimate prize: the Holey Moley plaid jacket, a golden putter, a $10,000 golf shopping spree and the title of the world’s first-ever Holey Moley Junior Champion.
How will these golfing stars of tomorrow deal with the death-defying Holey Moley obstacles? Don’t worry: that’s what parents are for.
While the kids take the putts, their adult caddies will take the hits on diabolical course favourites, including Putter Ducky, Dutch Courage, Putt the Plank and many more.
