What’s a big hit for you? 250 yards… 325 yards… how about 500 yards!
That’s what Louis Oosthuizen’ did on a 583 yard par 5 at the 2013 Ballantine’s Championship in Korea. Of course he had a little help from the cart path.
Check out the video of his drive. We like the fans that don’t even notice the golf ball rolling behind them. And the lesson learned is if you see a ball rolling on the cart path at a golf tournament… don’t touch it.
So did he eagle or birdie the hole? Unfortunately not… Oosthuizen took a free drop, pitched the ball into the fairway and ended up making a par.
