Aussie pro Lucas Herbert spoke live on TV during his round in the World Super 6 where players are mic'd up
WATCH: Mic’d Up Pro Gives Insight During Round At World Super 6
Yesterday we reported that golfers will be mic’d up during this week’s World Super 6 Perth and it appeared to go quite well during round one.
There were no signs of big names like Lee Westwood and Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston chatting to the commentators mid-way through their rounds, but Aussie Lucas Herbert gave some great insight during his interview.
Walking down the fairway after hitting a par-5 in two, Herbert was in conversation with the broadcasters live on TV during his round.
Have a watch of the video here:
The commentary team initially congratulate him on his approach to the par-5, to which he replies: “What am I looking at? What have I got?”
Herbert discovers from the commentators that he has around 20ft for eagle, before asking “Can I get a read from the commentary box?”
“I had 5 iron, that was 236 yards pin. We got that downwind and it obviously got a good kick,” he said.
“It’s about 350, probably I’ve hit that.”
Herbert went on to hole to the putt for eagle and shoot a four-under-par round of 68.
The Aussie is four back of fellow countryman Brett Rumford, who won this tournament last year.
Lee Westwood is in a tie for 2nd after a six-under 66.
The tournament sees 36-holes of strokeplay before a cut and then 18 further holes of strokeplay on Saturday before another cut to get the field down to 24 players.
The final day is a knockout tournament comprising of six-hole matches.
