Jose Maria Olazabal delighted the crowd at the Etihad Stadium with some fine golfing skills at half-time during Manchester City's match against Liverpool on Sunday.
The 51-year-old was in Manchester to promote the 146th Open which is set to take place from July 20 to July 23 at Royal Birkdale.
Olazabal also spent some quality time with long-time friend and compatriot Pep Guardiola, possibly cheering on the home side during the game.
However, it was not until the break that the two-time Masters champion made his presence felt as he offered some unique entertainment for the crowd.
Following the goalless yet exciting first half, the Spaniard took part in a chipping challenge as he prepared to aim for a flag at the centre circle as part of a "nearest-the-pin" contest.
After warming up with a few pitch shots, Olazabal expertly executed a stroke which not only landed inside the circle but ended up just a few feet away from the flag, the crowd applauding the golfer for his skills and effort.
The golfing Hall of Famer has played in some of the sport's biggest venues and in front of hostile spectators, but his performance at the Etihad was well-received by the audience in the stadium.
This half-time show would have certainly relaxed the crowd preparing them for what was to be a thrilling second half with the actual match ending 1-1.
