Some golfers are long. Some are accurate. In Russell Henley's case on Saturday, he was both.

His drive on the 465-yard, par-4 14th hole at PGA National went 314 yards, leaving him with a 150-yard pitching wedge from the right fringe. A pitching wedge!

You can imagine what happens next:



One little hop. Spin back, kiss the flagstick and go right down into the cup.

Funny thing? Henley might have been the last person to realize the ball went in the hole. His caddy reaches out for a palm slap, and Henley's still not sure for a few seconds.

And how do you like Russell's little sly grin once he realizes what he just did? Amazing stuff. His DIVOT may have traveled farther than most average golfers can hit a full wedge.
