Long drive champion Tim Burke visited Golf Channel studios earlier this week to show off his title-winning swing.
He said his ball has been clocked at 226 MPH off the club face. That's a joke.
Skip ahead to 5:35 to watch his big-boy swing. He seriously looks like he could hit the ball 500 yards. I'm just glad he didn't break the simulator.
I also laughed at how incredulous Holly Sonders was at Burke's distance. "That's on the island!"
For the competition Burke won last week with a 427-yard drive he actually used a special ball created by Top-Flite (see below).
I talked to somebody from Top-Flite who said the ball is almost completely covered in dimples.
"By taking the core compression up to 110 from 90 they created a faster ball for these guys. The dimple pattern results in almost 90% surface coverage for enhanced aerodynamics."
I could watch him swing it all day.
