Two Australian polo players potentially risked their lives when they posed as pro golfers to compete in the North Korean Golf Open in Pyongyang.

28-year-olds Morgan Ruig and Evan Shay entered the golf tournament after playing in a polo event in nearby China.

Ruig told Australian television show The Project that they wanted to become dual internationals so emailed the organisers of the golf tournament, masquerading as professional golfers.

Decked out in fake Australian green blazers, they were accepted as the real deal.

Ruig said had probably played 18 holes of golf all up in his entire life and ended up shooting a round of 120.
