WATCH: European Tour player smashes ball 300 yards with 3-iron

 

This is absurd. European Tour rookie Jordan Smith just did something some of us can’t do with a driver.

 

He hit his tee shot 300 yards….with an iron. Let this be a testament to how much faster golfers are swinging.

 

It’s power wave has gotten so crazy, that we sometimes poke fun at Jordan Spieth for his power. Yet, he hits it over 290 yards off the tee.

 

I will personally say, that I love the power surge. Think of it kinda like baseball.

 

Fans absolutely adore the home run, and it’s always exciting to see. Driving in golf is a fan favorite, and it’s always a joy seeing guys boom it down a fairway.

 

The course vs. player balance is still there however. Don’t worry, you won’t see anyone drive a par-5 anytime soon.

WATCH: Justin Thomas sinks eagle for 59 at Sony Open

 

Just a week after winning the SBS Tournament of Champions, Justin Thomas shoots a 59 at the Sony Open. Yes, that’s right, as the avalanche of young golfing talent continues to grow.

 

Thomas becomes the fifth player in PGA Tour history to shoot a 59. The only others to do so are Jim Furyk, Paul Goydos, David Duval and Stuart Appleby.

 

I would also like to mention that, after that last paragraph, my word count was at ’59’. Whoa.

 

But Thomas has been playing like a beast so far. Between he and Hedeki Matsuyama, there are simply no two guys hotter this early in the fresh new season.

 

If yet, another 59 isn’t an indication of how good golfers continue to get, then I don’t know what is. Plus, guys like Thomas are a lot of fun to follow on social media which is great for the younger audiences.

 

At one point, it seemed like we only had two or three players that were very good. Now, it feels like we have a thousand, and Thomas and Matsuyama can be added to the list.
