When You Swap Football And Golf Commentators Around

When You Swap Football And Golf Commentators Around

Cristiano Ronaldo lining up a free kick is closer to a golf player lining up a putt at a major so what happens if you switch the commentators around for the two sports?

The way Ronaldo lines up his shots from dead ball situations is very similar to the way Jonny Wilkinson famously used to line up his kicks at goal when he was the best fly half in the world.

The Portugal forward doesn't always have the best success with his free kicks but when it gets right it's like sinking the winning putt, and here's the proof.

But then it's not just Ronaldo and Tiger who can have their commentary swapped. Mexican commentary for Ross Fischer from the PGA's own account certainly makes it seem like the English golfer has scored a last minute winner, incredible stuff.

On Friday Ronaldo scored Portugal's second as they beat Luxembourg 3-0 in a Euro 2020 qualifier, with Bernardo Silva and and Goncalo Guedes also on the scoresheet, and it took the Juventus forward closer to an incredible record.

The goal gave the five time Ballon d'Or winner his 94th goal for his country and means he is just 15 behind world record holder, former Iran international, Ali Daei.

Breaking that record, which is likely to happen considering the team have three more qualifiers this year before friendlies and Euro 2020 next, would potentially be the ultimate achievement amongst Ronaldo's many records.

Since moving to Italy to join Juve in July 2018 has continued his excellent goalscoring, although it's not quite as good as it was when he was at Real Madrid, scoring 32 times in 51 appearances so far.

However the bad news is he hasn't recreated his free-kick scoring for the Old Lady and is officially the second worst free kick taker in Italy since his debut.

As of September 26th the former Manchester United winger had taken 18 of the set pieces without being successful, with only Camillo Ciano's 21 attempts without scoring for Frosinone bettering him.
