rory mcilroy breaks twitter with 365 yard carry with his driver

 

Rory McIlroy's short game might look as though as it needs a little bit of work if he is to win this week's US PGA Championship, but it's fair to say the Northern Irishman's long game has never looked so good.

Just a day after hitting 300-yard drives dressed as an astronaut, McIlroy took off his spacesuit and slipped into something a little more comfortable before bashing his fairway wood out the back of the driving range to 331 yards on the carry!

Yes, carry! Even Rory himself looked surprised by his own efforts with his TaylorMade M2 Tour fairway wood. 

He then took out his M2 driver, and hit a 365-yard carry! 

As a result, a number of GIFS have been doing the rounds on Twitter the last 24 hours. 

Here's a look at the freak shot, which was too long to even fit in the driving range - scroll to five minutes in the video to see the one everyone is talking about. And just check out the ball speed...
