Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, and Rickie Fowler are three of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour. But their pop was no match for Matthew Wolff during the TaylorMade Driving Relief event.
The just-completed charity skins game featured two long drive holes and the 21-year-old dominated on both. First, Wolff launched a 326-metre drive on the second hole to claim a $US100,000 bonus for the CDC Foundation. But his biggest poke came on the back nine.
With a $US350,000 bonus on the line on the 14th, Wolff unleashed a 336-metre bomb. Ah, youth. Suddenly, the trio of thirty-somethings looked like senior tour players. Check it out:
∙ 368-yard drive ✔️
∙ $350K for charity ✔️

Wolff raised a lot of money and made a lot of fans today. And after that powerful display, we’re guessing his swing coach, George Gankas, will be getting a lot of phone calls in the coming days from golfers looking to add a few metres.
