First of all, hate to throw cold water on this thing, but Rory McIlroy hitting a golf ball in a space suit would have been a helluva lot more impressive if he were wearing the helmet. And it’s not like he didn’t have one.
Look! Put that on and belt a drive and you’ve earned the respect of everyone at GolfWRX and NASA.
Watch. And good on Omega for coming up with a more creative marketing initiative than the torture-by-sound of the Rory McIlroy “Hall of Fame” commercial on endless repeat.
This absolutely has nothing on astronaut Alan Shepard’s beautifully executed 6-iron punch shots on the surface of the moon, however. Sorry, it just doesn’t.
In fact, even if you’re a conspiracy theorist and believe the moon landing was a hoax, an amateur golfer successfully executive the half swing in full 450-pound Apollo-era space suit has Rory beat.
