Feats Of Strength

You won't believe how far this World Long Drive champ can hit a putter(!)

July 13, 2023

It's been well established that Martin Borgmeier can absolutely crush a golf ball. Last October, the 32-year-old German ended Kyle Berkshire's three-year reign in the World Long Drive Championship, taking down Bryson DeChambeau (Yes, that Bryson DeChambeau) in the finals with a 426-yard blast (Yes, you also read that right). But Borgmeier recently shared a video of a much shorter poke—and yet it's probably his most impressive.

That's because Borgmeier used a putter for his latest feat of strength. And you won't believe how far he launched one with the shortest—and flattest—club in the bag. At least, we didn't believe it.

We won't spoil the distance for you if you want to check it out for yourself first. Have a look:

327 yards?! With a putter?! That's three HUNDRED and twenty-seven yards! Seriously, how is that physically possible?!

Just incredible stuff from Borgmeier, who somehow managed a 285-yard carry and 185-mph ball speed with the strike. Absurd numbers. Well done, Martin. And the mic/putter drop at the end was a nice touch. If there's ever a Long Drive/Putter Contest, we know who we're putting our money on.
