The Rock vies to break longest ever golf drive record

Former WWE wrestler and current Hollywood movie star The Rock has fallen agonisingly close to breaking the world record for the longest ever golf drive, according to the man himself.

The WWE legend found some time out of his hectic schedule to attempt some record-breaking on the golf course, but, unlike his wrestling and movie career, did not find the same level of success.

"The world record longest drive is 515 yards set in 1974," The Rock posted on Instagram about Mike Austin's accomplishment at US Senior National Open Qualifier.

"My drive here measured an estimated 490 yards by the scientists holding the rulers. I failed math when I was a kid, but I think that's kinda close."

The drive was incredibly close, but unfortunately for the Brahma Bull, not quite good enough on this occasion.
