As part of an ongoing set of features with Rory McIlroy, Sports Science revisited a theme it first tested with former PGA Tour player Brad Faxon, setting up a three-part challenge that involved, at one point, McIlroy hitting a shot out of coleslaw. But only after a quick taste test, of course.
As it turns out, coleslaw is much harder to hit out of compared to grass. According to Sports Science's calculations, cabbage is 20 times thicker than regular grass, and mayonnaise is about 5,000 more dense than water.
So, the lesson going into Pinehurst? Hit your drive into coleslaw, and you're in for a tough week ahead.
