VIDEO: Lee Westwood, Danny Willett, Andrew 'Beef' Johnston play drone golf at Turkish Airlines Open

Over the past year, drones have become a commonplace around the golf course. But many of the results haven’t ended well for the drone.

The European Tour, though, has found a way to include drones in a way that is fun and safe for everyone … Including the drone.

Drone golf.

At the Turkish Airlines Open this week, the European Tour pitted Masters champ Danny Willett, Lee Westwood and Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston against each other in the “Drone Golf Championship.” The trio each had to fly a drone with a ball attached from a rooftop to a green and then drop a ball inside a set of rings. The closest to the pin wins.

Westwood walked away the victor, as the only player to drop his ball inside the rings. Beef’s ball dropped off well before he even got to the green.
