Our partners at the European Tour snapped this impressive highlight (watch below) of Henrik Stenson on the massive 626-yard par 5 at the DP World Championship in Dubai. You can really get a sense of the distance, which was reported at 270 yards. The heavy hitter, who averaged 300 yards in driving distance on the European Tour this year, crushed a 4-iron onto the green for a decent eagle chance.
Of course, decent eagle chance doesn't always equate to eagle, and Stenson settled for birdie here, en route to a 4-under 68 in the third round. The defending champion is tied with Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello, holding a three-shot lead over the field. Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy are among those chasing.
If he wins, Stenson will finish the 2014 European Tour season as runner-up to McIlroy in the Race to Dubai.
"To win would be very pleasing as I've had a solid year, but I haven't got a trophy yet," Stenson told the Associated Press. "There is still a lot of golf to play and Rafa, he's had a 64 and a 65, so he seems to be on fire."
Here's a look at that 4-iron:
