Justin James was a man of few words during post match interviews at the Volvik World Long Drive Championship. The no.3 player in the world woke up after realizing he won the championship belt that’s awarded to winners. After defeating Mitch Grassing in the finals, James went bananas after his winning drive.
He grabbed the belt, ran with it, dropped, and then leaped like a cat into the stands, where he embraced hugs with his family. During his post match interview with Golf Channel’s Jerry Foltz, he had a lot more to say than previously as the sigh of relief consumed him. He was so ecstatic, he gave a shout out to his “super hot wife” as she looked in slight embarrassment.
There’s no doubt Justin James is the happiest man in the world. To go from being all business to becoming the “Snapping Turtle” (his nickname) shows that inner excitement. He didn’t have to do much either, as Grassing, unfortunately never kept his shot in the grid on all eight tries. WIth four balls to go, James was the mailman, and he delivered the package, with a moon shot that soared over 420 yards.
If there’s one way, to end a long drive competition, that’s one way to do it. On the women’s side, Sandra Carlborg captured her fifth title, becoming only the second long driver ever to accomplish this (the great Jason Zuback is the other). She made a case for becoming the greatest long driver of all-time.
Well played you two, and nice celebration Mr. James.
