WATCH: Long driver snaps his club during Volvik World Long Drive Championship

The golfers in the world of Long Drive are something special to watch. Sure, there are some haters out there, but the effortless power and the unique swings make it quite the spectacle.

Wes Patterson, who has shocked everyone by upsetting the two best long drivers in the world in Maurice Allen and Ryan Reisbeck in the Volvik World Long Drive Championship. He also has a beautiful swing, but that artistic swing shattered his club into two, hitting a fan.



The fan is fine and may have gotten a little souvenir. So the unranked Patterson has already had his share of highlights.

He also seems to be one of, if not the nicest guy in long drive which is saying a lot, because most of those guys and girls are very respectful and humble despite their intimidating nature. Golf fans may have a new fan favorite in Patterson, but let’s just hope that the next time a club snaps, that it doesn’t fly into the crowd.

That was a close one. Phew.
