It’s not the plane of his swing, or the hips turning, it’s the new Titleist 917 driver ladies and gentlemen.
That rumbling you hear is the noise of hundreds of golf fans running to the nearest Dick’s Sporting Goods and buying the new Titleist driver.
According to Golf Channel, the drive went three yards longer than Bubba’s 410-yard blast at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.
Thomas went on to eagle the 16th, which ONLY TWO have done before him, and finish T6.
