Following on from its successful Content Committee - Shortlisted for the Creative Content Award in association with Getty Images at the Sport Industry Awards 2020 - the European Tour has reprised the idea for the coronavirus lockdown with ‘The Conference Call’.

Nine top golfing names such as Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Tommy Fleetwood and Colin Montgomerie dialled into a conference call hosted by two-time major champion Martin Kaymer to discuss a number of orders of business - but some familiar issues hampered their progress.

From Fleetwood’s hair and childcare issues to Padraig Harrington’s ropey internet connection, the spot shows that even top golfers have to put up with the petty annoyances of dialling in when working from home.
