19th Hole

Dean Burmester’s 411 yard drive + eagle hole out = U.S. Open shot of the day

Published

on

South Africa’s Dean Burmester turned in the shot of the day from a brutal first round at Shinnecock.

Owing to the USGA’s return to sadism, the greens of the famed Southampton track were no place for weak men.

Burmester bypassed all of that at the 18th hole, Thursday, however. Obliterating his drive 411 yards at the downwind 485-yard hole–he had but a finessed wedge left to the back left pin.

And finesse it he did…right in the hole for an eagle two.

The major championship debutante finished the day plus-5.

With respect to the weaponry in question, Burmester is a TaylorMade staffer, but he plays a Srixon Z-Star XV ball (see Exhibit A: A photo he tweeted below), and what looks to be a TalorMade MG wedge in antique bronze.
