It's no secret that Rory McIlroy has the strength to absolutely destroy the ball off the tee. But even this shot might be a new mark for him.

On the drivable par-4 12th hole, McIlroy grabbed his new TaylorMade driving iron (which he called his 290 club earlier this week) and took aim at the green. The pin is playing 304 yards today and the front edge of the green at 285.

The ball landed at around that 285 mark and settled about 26 yards past the pin.

Yes, that's a 330-yard driving iron you just witnessed that was too much club. Stay tuned for more feats of strength from young Rory.
