‘Must be a Hammers fan’ – Watch Mark Noble get suspiciously good bounce from out of bounds after big slice at St Andrews

, ‘Must be a Hammers fan’ – Watch Mark Noble get suspiciously good bounce from out of bounds after big slice at St Andrews

WEST HAM legend Mark Noble was handed a huge chunk of luck after an awful tee-shot at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

The Hammers hero played in the pro-am tournament alongside American world No15 and West Ham fan Billy Horschel.

Noble’s tee-shot miraculously bounced around in the crowd before skipping back onto the fairway

They finished the tournament at the iconic St. Andrew’s in T10, one place behind Rory McIlroy and his dad Gerry.

Noble and Horschel together posted a score of -29 thru four 72 holes, but the West Ham legend got a tee-shot on the 18th hole all wrong.

Despite having more time on his hands after hanging up his boots at the end of last season, the ex-midfielder’s golf swing still needs a little work.

Noble sliced his shot well right of the fairway and into the crowd at St. Andrew’s.

With the ball bouncing around out of bounds, it looked as though the 35-year-old would have to take a drop.

But somehow it then miraculously, and rather suspiciously, found its way back onto the fairway to the delight of the crowd.

How the ball managed to get onto the fairway remains a mystery, although there were suggestions foul play was involved.

The astounded Sky Sports commentator joked: “There must be a Hammers fan in that group!”


While the other quipped: “It’s amazing the spin these amateurs get on it, it’s quite incredible!”

Hammers fanatic Horschel and Noble have struck up quite the friendship, with the latter telling the Sunday Times: “We speak probably daily now.

“Whether it’s on the phone or messages and play some golf together, socialise together. We just clicked and have become very good friends.

“It’s so interesting for me to see someone who is an elite-level golfer and the way his mindset is with golf, the way mine was with football.

“To be invited to play at the Dunhill is incredible, but to play with your mate, your friend, is very special.”

Keen golfer Noble is making the most of his time off ahead of his return to his beloved West Ham in January.

The Hammers confirmed last month that Noble had been appointed as the new club sporting director.

He will officially start his new job on January 2nd, 2023.

Noble has been studying for the role with an Entertainment, Media and Sports Business leadership course at Harvard business school.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I improve golf scores?

These simple tips will make your golf game more enjoyable.

  1. You should practice more than you play. Practice more if you want to improve at something. Playing too much means you’re practicing bad habits.
  2. You should play when you feel good. There are days when you just don’t feel like playing. You shouldn’t be forced to do things that you don’t like. Instead, find ways to make golf enjoyable again.
  3. Take breaks. Golfers often take breaks during their round to stretch, walk around, eat lunch, etc. Taking breaks can help your body relax and keep you focused throughout the round.
  4. Drink water It’s easy for you to lose count of how many beverages you’ve consumed while on the golf course. Be sure to drink enough water, so you don’t get dehydrated. You will feel refreshed and ready for your next round of golf if you drink plenty of water before, throughout, and after the game.
  5. Eat right. Healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and legumes will provide energy that will help you perform well on the course.
  6. Stay hydrated. Drinking lots of water is the best way to stay hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. This includes water from drinks (such as coffee) and plain water.
  7. Make sure to warm up. Before hitting the first shot in a round, warm up by walking or jogging for five minutes. You should then be flexible and agile.
  8. Keep your head down. When you tee off, it’s important to keep your eyes straight ahead. Do not look at the ball or pay attention to where it lands. Your eyes should be focused on the hole instead.
  9. Proper form is key to a smooth and graceful swing. Proper form may mean different things to different people. But you should try to avoid swinging at your target. Instead, aim to strike the ball at the center of your target.
  10. You should be focused on the process. Focusing on the process is key to developing a golf swing that is successful. There are many factors that can contribute to a good swing. You can relax your grip if your hands are slipping. Focus on good posture, if you find it difficult to balance.

How To

Five Steps to Lower your Golf Scores

  1. Start off with the right equipment. It’s important to have the right equipment. The best way to find out what type of club you should use is to take lessons from someone who knows how to play golf. Ask around at your local driving range if you don’t know anyone who plays. You might get a lesson for free, or they may even offer you a free one!
  2. Practice makes perfect. This is a well-known fact, but practice is essential if you want to improve your game. No matter what level you play at, practicing is important. It doesn’t matter if you practice alone or with friends; it is important to keep track. Write down everything you do so that you can see where you’re improving and where you still need work.
  3. Play more. You might feel that you’re spending too much time on golf equipment when you first start. But once you get into a groove, you’ll realize that you actually enjoy it quite a bit. You can increase your play frequency. Try to play three times per week (or every other day). This means that you should play one round of 18 holes on the weekend and two rounds 9 holes during week.
  4. Don’t forget to eat well. Many people believe that eating breakfast is a way to do their bodies a favor. This isn’t healthy. Instead, eat something before you go out of the house. In order to be healthy, you should have small snacks with protein, carbohydrates and fat. Then, when you arrive at the course, you can have a light meal consisting of lean proteins and vegetables.
  5. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. Drinking lots of fluids prevents dehydration, which can lead headaches or muscle aches. Additionally, water helps to keep your body hydrated which is essential for peak performance.
