What is life without risk? It's just a big waste of time where the most exciting thing is whether or not there's a reduction on limited edition Kit Kats in ASDA. So, why wouldn't you blag your way into a North Korean golf open?
Two men, pretending to represent Australia during the open, gave this a go. It's a very ballsy thing to do when you consider that games of chess end in execution in North Korea (probably).
Morgan Ruig and Evan Shay reportedly emailed the organisers of the tournament, which eventually accepted them, meaning they could play in Pyongyang. Pulling off what will go down in history as one of the greatest professional pranks ever, the pair didn't actually have a clue how to play.
Nevertheless, they were there, kitted out in all the usual gear, being chaperoned around a course by a Korean caddy. At one point, when Shay shanked his shot, the caddy said: "Brought great shame upon [their] families." Given their location, that would mean running for the hills just in case they were served up on a platter for Kim Jong-un himself.
Following the revelation that these two jokers managed to wing their way not only into one of the most feared countries in the world, but also to play in a professional golf tournament, they should be put to good use doing other things.
It'd be great to see them blag to some official at a presidential debate that they're part of Trump's ensemble, only to go in and fuck everything up for him. I'm talking the Republican's head photoshopped onto a pig up to no good, projected onto the screen behind him. That appears while 'Bobby Brown' by Frank Zappa plays, and a bucket of water is dropped on old Trump's head, just to deliberately make his fake tan streaky.
Morgan and Evan went out of their way to create fake Australian golf blazers, so there's absolutely no reason why they couldn't mock up their own Sunderland blazers and training kits in order to actually sneak into the club. There's a chance they'd do a better job than David Moyes, even if they've never seen football before.
Somehow the estate agent and builder didn't come last in the Open. Normally this would lead you to think that there was genuinely a professional who was worse than two no marks, but it was actually the Nepalese ambassador's 15-year-old daughter who sat at the bottom of the leader board. Seriously, what is this tournament?
If we soon wake up to the news that they've managed to sneak into a shot of Walking Dead, I wouldn't be surprised.
