VIDEO: Long-drive champ shows off monster swing
Tim Burke visited Golf Channel earlier this week to show everybody there his unbelievably big swing.
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.
