If you don’t know who Maurice Allen is, then you’re missing out. He’s one of the best long drivers in the world, in particular, dominating on the European Tour, and enjoying some recent success in the U.S.
Allen won the Mile High Shootout, defeating then world no.1 Ryan Reisbeck, but before that, during an interview on NBC/Golf Channel, he did one of the best celebrations ever. He replicated what Ric Flair used to do during his wrestling days, and as we know, Flair was one of wrestling’s most hyped characters.
Probably the funniest thing of all is, the man himself, Ric Flair replied to NBC/Golf Channel’s tweet with is famous “WOOO!”.

We’ve seen some exciting characters in golf over the years, and immedietely, one name that comes to mind is Seve Ballesteros, who arguably was the most expressive golfer in history. Maurice Allen just took over that title as golf’s most expressive character.
Although it’s not traditional golf, it’s still a great golf related event. You still use golf balls and clubs, you’re just not aiming for a hole.
Other than his animated nature, Allen is just a joy to watch, with an explosive swing. You and I would likely swing out of our shoes, trying to replicate his swing.
The Florida A&M alum looks to continue his success as we get closer to the Volvik World Long Drive Championship. Well played Maurice, keep doing you.
