Admit it, you probably know a guy or two that can hit a drive 280 yards. It isn't as easy as it sounds, but it's doable. Get the right conditions, with some firm
cart path fairways, and even the most recreational golfer can get a drive down the way.
But if you're Bubba Watson, number two in driving distance on the PGA Tour at a whopping 309.8 yards per smack, you get to that number regularly ... with your four-wood.
Yep, Watson hit his four-wood on Friday at the Chevron World Challenge from 283 yards on the 16th hole, and it was a good looking shot, only it kept getting better, and better, and ... DOUBLE-EAGLE!
Wow. Simply incredible. I'd love to know the stat on the longest albatross ever recorded, because if 283 isn't near the top, I'll start spelling you're welcome "ur welcome."
