Golfer drives 300-yard par-4 green…with an iron

Check out this big drive from Jordan Smith! Jordan Spieth? No, Jordan Smith: A 24-year-old European Tour rookie teeing it up in the BMW South African Open.

Smith finished first on the Challenge Tour’s money list in 2016, and he’ll have garnered some attention with this effort in the big leagues. At Glendower Golf Club’s 309-yard, par-four 12th hole, Smitty (as we assume his friends call him) drove the green…with a 3-iron.

In the Twittersphere, Chris Monaghan commented: “When you come from Wiltshire you can do that 💪🏻,” which surely will mean something poignant to our British readership.

And how about dude’s approval face in the background?

Anyway, Smith made his eagle putt at the 12th and began his final round just four strokes off the lead. From a man whose Twitter bio states “Pro Golfer….trying to make what I love my living,” it’s a damn impressive achievement.

Also, change your Twitter bio, Jordan. With a showing of this caliber in just your fifth European Tour start, you’ll be amongst the action very soon.
