Watch Martin Kaymer and Bernhard Langer crush insane drives . . . with their putters
We love watching the pros, but let's be honest, it can make us feel a bit inferior when it comes to our golf games. Well, prepare to feel even worse.
Mercedes-Benz filmed a video of Martin Kaymer and Bernhard Langer having a friendly long drive contest. The catch? They could only use a putter. Here's how it played out:
The best part of the video -- other than the ridiculous drives these guys pull off with a putter, of course -- is when Kaymer, impressed by hearing how far Langer hit it, exclaims, "Bernhard! . . . How old is he? 54?" (Told 57) "57!"
But if you got a chuckle from that, your jaw may have dropped when you saw the final numbers. Not surprisingly, Kaymer, who is just about half of Langer's age, won easily, but with a distance of 212.3?! Really?!
But wait, those numbers are in meters. In yards, Langer's farthest drive went 208, while Kaymer's went a whopping 232!
Yep, Martin Kaymer hit a ball 232 yards using a putter. Yep, Martin Kaymer can probably hit a putter longer than you can hit your driver. Sorry. We feel your pain.
