Rory McIlroy took another huge leap towards recapturing the form which made him famous on the golf course – with his lowest score in more than four years – a 9-under 63 while playing with Tiger Woods...
World Long-est Drive-r Champion
Just when you thought you'd seen it all, a Danish man rocks up with a 14-foot 5 inch driver.
The Dane in question is a certain Mr. Karsten Maas, and his new big stick has trumped his previous sterling effort which measured up at a mere 14-foot 2 1/2 inches.
This club has seen Maas' name make the Guinness Book of World Records for producing the longest driver of all time, and rumours are rife that is has also seen him become certifiable.
Maas claims that the two and half inches added to his latest model has enabled him to gain 40 yards in distance, and it is believed that swing speeds generated with this behemoth are well in excess of 150 miles per hour.
This driver truly has to be seen to be believed, and so too does the swing required to handle it.
In his demonstration of the product of his labours Maas can be seen to be lassoing the ultra-flexible club in order to temper the motion generated through the swing.
There is no doubting that you have to be a little out there to spend time producing a 14-foot 5 inch driver, and we have no doubt that Mr. Maas will be heading straight back to the tool-shed to make an even bigger effort.
