Watched a fair bit of the WGC Match Play Championship over the weekend. Both winner Dustin Johnson and John Rahm were on some kind of roll. But, I have to say that I'm just left gobsmacked with some of the yardages being reported. 357 yard 3 woods and 217 yard 8 irons -- WTF!! There's something fundamentally wrong with the game when a 600 yard par five can be reached in two with a driver and a short iron. There is no translation to the amateur game whatsoever. For the average Joe to do that would require a par 5 of about 360 yards, tops. They don't exist; anywhere!
I'm sorry, but this stuff doesn't pass the smell test. Something or more likely several things are being doctored up for the spectacle!
