Fowler nearly hits 300-yard drive with persimmon wood


Rickie Fowler ranked 23rd on the PGA Tour in driving distance last season, averaging 301.6 yards off the tee.

He’s got some pop with a persimmon wood, too.

Instructor Claude Harmon showed the below video of Fowler using the archaic technology during practice.

As you can see, he hit the ball 292 yards – though, the carry was only 274. That 292.1 number would have him currently T-101 on Tour in driving distance this season.
