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.
