A group of Detroit Red Wings players recently traveled to Scotland and Ireland for a golfing trip. While there they got to play many famous courses, which is fitting since the British Open just began on Thursday.â†µ
While they may be hockey players, Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall showed off his golf skills in a big way on the 15th hole at Turnberry in Scotland. The course has hosted the British Open four times, and when it played host to the Wings, Kronwall made the most of his time there.â†µ
"We had a ton of fun, lots of laughs," Draper said. "For most of the guys, it was their first time over there. We played the big Scottish courses."â†µ
Niklas Kronwall recorded his first hole-in-one on the 206-yard 15th at historic Turnberry, the site of four British Open championships.
The last Red Wings hole-in-one came in August 2010 when general manager Ken Holland aced a hole during a trip to Oregon. It was his third career hole-in-one, so Kronwall needs two more to match Holland's mark.
