On 20 May 2014, athletes from all corners of action sports crossed clubs on the stunning Windlesham Golf course, near London, for the Oakley KING of GREENS, the international golf tournament for action sports athletes. At the end of a gruelling 18 holes and a nail-biting playoff, Scottish Olympic pipe rider Ben Kilner beat Tahitian big wave surfer Alain Riou with a one shot lead.
The Oakley KING of GREENS is no ordinary golf championship, with a broad church of international action sports heroes playing for the crown of the Oakley KING of GREENS, a ticket to play at the BMW PGA Championship Pro-Am contest, in Wentworth, and a priceless one-off Nixon timepiece. Players included the infamous base jumper Cedric Dumont (BEL), who was among the favourites to win, Norwegian freeski champion PK Hunder and Snowboard legend Heikki Sorsa (FIN), as well as a handful of other players with single figure handicaps, including Olympian snowboarders Ben Kilner and Konstantin Schad (GER).
In addition to playing a professional 18 holes tournament, competitors would have to play a surprise "Beat the Pro" contest on hole 14, against two-time European Champion Rafa Cabrera-Bello (ESP). Rafa would only be beaten by two action sports stars: Norwegian snowboard champion Gjermund Braaten and Belgian Cedric Dumont.
The following day Ben would also win at the BMW PGA Championship Pro-Am contest alongside Rafa Cabrera-Bello.
