Watch Rory McIlroy flex after ripping 345-yard tee shot at long drive contest

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. 

After hearing the bomb put him in first place, McIlroy flexed for the crowd and his competitors.

With all the talk of McIlroy working out in the gym more than he should, it’s certainly helping his game off the tee. He’s one of the longest hitters in the game today.
