Phillis Meti, the defending champion at the the Volvik World Long Drive Championship, blasted her final shot in the semifinals long enough to win ... but she didn't beat the shot clock.

After missing the grid with her first seven drives, Meti needed to hit her last one longer than Heather Manfredda's 313-yard mark. She was able to launch her tee shot beyond that distance, but didn't make contact with the ball before the one-minute, 30-second timer (to hit a total of four drives) expired.

Manfredda, the 2013 champion, only kept one shot on the grid, but it was enough to advance to the finals.
