The 'Call the Shots' video series from Ballantine's Golf Club lets golf enthusiasts get the vicarious experience of playing the stately game like a professional. Enlisting the help of six-time Ryder Cup winner Paul McGinley and filmed at two Scottish links courses, the videos allow users to decide on McGinley's strategy for three different holes.

In 'Call the Shots' three videos, McGinley begins at the tee and users control his decision-making process up until the final putt, acting as his virtual caddie. To maximize the variations in the videos' shots, they include a par three, a par four and a par five. Furthermore, depending on a user's choices, one might (force McGinley to) encounter hazards like sand traps, deep rough and water.
