(NBC) - The Eifel Tower in Paris, France was turned into a temporary driving range on Tuesday morning.

Ryder Cup Captains, Thomas Bjorn and Jim Furyk hit golf balls from the tower ahead of next year’s Ryder Cup in Paris.

The duo emulated Arnold Palmer, U.S. Ryder Cup Captain in 1963 and 1975, who made similar shots from the tower 41 years ago.

Europe Captain Bjorn said it was an honor for them to follow in Palmer’s footsteps, while U.S. Captain Furyk said the pair had an incredible 48 hours in the French capital, culminating in the breathtaking scenic shots from the iconic Parisian landmark.
