Rory McIlroy smashed golf balls on the range at Quail Hollow and they went a long way. A very long way.
The Golf Channel had their cameras pointing at Rory McIlroy on the driving range at the PGA Championship today and the distances he was hitting the golf ball were freaking people out.
By adding Trackman and ProTracer, Golf Channel added the animated details of each shot along side McIlroy smashing golf balls. And the results were astonishing.
McIlroy is hitting a 3-wood here. And was carrying the ball just under 300 yards! With a 3-wood!

McIlroy then pulled out the driver and carried it 365-yards! That’s a carry of 333 metres! Remarkable. And slightly worrying at the same time. The range just wasn’t big enough.
