Louis’ 500 Yard Drive

Louis Oosthuizen is reasonably long off he tee but even he would have been surprised by this monster drive at the weekend.

The South African isn't all that pleased with his drive during the second round of the European Tour’s Ballantine’s Championship in South Korea.

That disappointment turns to intrigue as the wayward drive catches a path running down the right-hand side of the hole, and takes on a life of it’s own finally stopping just a short wedge away on the 583-yard hole.

As the ball's two-minute journey gradually shows, finding the cart path can sometimes create a good break.

The 2010 Open Champion went on to make par from the rough on his way to shoot 71. He finished fifth this week, three shots back of winner Brett Rumford.
