Of golf’s four major championships, the PGA Championship boasts the only long drive competition. It makes for a fun event during Tuesday’s practice round, though it did stir up some controversy a few years ago when Bubba Watson refused to participate.
This year at Baltusrol Golf Club, the contest is being held on the 478-yard par-4 first hole. Rory McIlroy unsurprisingly marveled at the chance to rip one 330-plus yards. And that’s exactly what he did, blasting a drive 345 yards down the left side.
