Could we see the first-ever 500-yard drive on tour at this week’s WGC-Mexico Championship? Probably not, but Mexico City’s Club de Golf Chapultepec sits 2,370 metres above sea level, a little higher than our Mt Kosciuszko. And that kind of altitude means we’re in store from some serious hangtime.
Exhibit A: Justin Thomas.
Overnight, Thomas posted this photo of his TrackMan stats from the range. And they’re mighty impressive:
Thomas is pound-for-pound one of the longest hitters on tour, but a 355.9-yard (325.4-metre) carry? That’s just ridiculous.
We look forward to the
long-drive contest golf tournament starting for real tomorrow night, AEDT.
