Aqua Greens lands in LA for the 2012 X Games
It doesn’t get more “Off Course” than this. For the newest Red Bull Off Course event, Aqua Greens packed up and headed for the west coast – and they just weren’t going for the weather. Working together with ESPN and Red Bull,
Aqua Greens was contracted to build a X Games themed bunker inside the infamous Mega Ramp, which you can see in the picture to the left. On June 27th, Fowler climbed atop the Mega Ramp (which is used during the X Games for skateboarding and BMX) and took aim at the bunker target about 95 feet away. Standing over 90 feet in the air, Fowler took aim towards the bunker – with the Staples Center and Nokia Theater as the backdrop. With a temporary launching pad, and Red Bull can in hand, Fowler chipped golf balls towards the pin, with a few
landing within a few feet. Fowler also jokingly putted a few balls down the ramp with his putter, which landed short of the gap. Fowler added: “It’s tough, we got a little bit of a drop here…we’re a few stories up. I think once we get the distance down, the lines shouldn’t be too big of an issue”
