Wofford golfer makes 100-foot birdie putt at NCAA Regional
When faced with a 100-foot putt, all you're really trying to do is two-putt. The chances of making it are slim to none, but Wofford junior Andrew Novak showed that anything is possible.
During the second round of the NCAA Regional, Novak had one of the longest birdie attempts of his career, presumably. The official distance isn't known, but Wofford says it was more than 100 feet, and that's completely believable.
Novak made the putt on the 18th hole (his ninth hole) as he made the turn at 2-under. He finished the round at even-par and is tied for 14th through the first two rounds.

By comparison, the longest putt attempted on the PGA Tour this season was 80 feet 9 inches by Retief Goosen at The Honda Classic.
