One of the many perks of playing professional golf for a living is the swag doled out by adoring sponsors. It might be a luxury courtesy car, free day care and food, or trips for the family to nearby attractions.

If you're in England at the Volvo World Match Play, one of the perks is to live out every little boy's fantasy and take the controls of a digger. That's what Henrik Stenson is doing in the video above, trying to hole a putt with one of Volvo's big machines.

Stenson, alas, misses the putt. He fared better during his actual round, when he holed this shot from the fairway to defeat Thongchai Jaidee 2 and 1 to reach the quarterfinals of the event.
