Watch: Long-drive champ hits 328-yard drive from his knees
Series: Golf Buzz

Jamie Sadlowski, a former two-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion (2008, 2009), visited his friends at Callaway Golf this week.
Prior to the visit, Callaway Senior Vice President of Marketing Harry Arnett (@HarryArnettCG) had been teasing a long-drive contest on Twitter, where he would take on Sadlowski. The rule was Arnett would hit driver, while Sadlowski would hit a 6-iron. Arnett hit driver 262 yards. Sadlowsk hit his 6-iron 278 yards.
That wasn't all for the fun though. The Callaway folks put out the Instagram video below where Sadlowski hits a driver -- from his knees -- 328 yards!
For a little perspective, the 25-year-old Sadlowski stands just 5 feet, 11 inches and weighs 170 pounds.
Late last year, Sadlowski visited Golf Channel's Morning Drive, where host Gary Williams challenged him to a long drive contest on the studio's simulator. That didn't end well... In fact, the contest was over before it even began when Sadlowski broke the simulator with a single shot.
