Underwater Golf

China has staged what is believed to be the world’s first underwater golf tournament. The event at Zuohai Aquarium in Fuzhou city, Fujian province, involved five players in a 50ft deep tank.

The rules are pretty much the same as for regular golf. Whoever gets the ball in the hole first wins the match. But players were judged on how long it took them to complete the hole rather than the number of strokes taken.
