Shocker of the day - Bo Jackson, who many regard as the greatest athlete of all time, is good at golf too.

How good, do you ask? Well, good enough to win Monday's Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge long drive competition, smashing one 331 yards in the video below.

The best part, however, comes at the 23-second mark, when Jackson, who is posing with the trophy, remarks to the cameraman, "Got [the photo]? This thing's getting heavy."

You better believe Bo still knows he's got it.

On a side note, Auburn head football coach Gus Malzahn won the closest-to-the-pin competition.
