Chamblee: DJ's drive 'greatest shot ever hit'

Dustin Johnson's ability with the driver never ceases to amaze, and he was at it again on Sunday at the Sentry Tournament of Champions where he nearly aced the 433-yard, par-4 12th hole en route to an eight-shot victory.

But while DJ himself said (jokingly, we think?) that the shot could've been better, Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee got on Twitter and immediately proclaimed it his favorite shot ever hit on the PGA Tour.

Chamblee, who is no stranger to sparking heated debates, even listed his entire top 10, with Johnson's drive ranked ahead of some of the most iconic shots of all time.

After receiving some backlash from the Twitttersphere claiming he was being a prisoner of the moment, Chamblee doubled down, and called the world No. 1's drive "the greatest shot ever hit in the game" because hitting a drive long and straight is the "hardest thing to do in golf."

It's hard to argue with opinion and Chamblee certainly presents an interesting case, but based on the initial reaction there's a good chance social media users will continue to try and change his mind on the subject.
