Louis Oosthuizen is naturally a long hitter currently ranked 7th on the European Tour averaging 302.8 yards a drive.
On Friday, he bumped up his average and set a new Tour record when his tee shot on the par-5, 583 yard first hole hit the cart path and rolled 500 yards before settling.
What’s even more incredible is that with only 83 yards left, Oosthuizen made a mediocre par on the hole. Guess he was just happy the ball didn’t make the u-turn to keep rolling down the hill.
