Was about 5 feet from Stenson at Bethpage 12 and he hit the magical 3 wood off the tee. Never heard a sound like that coming off a club before or since. Like a shotgun.

During my short run at doing long drive I was hitting on the range the Friday before a weekend independent event in 2002.   I wasn't even paying attention and someone behind me hit and my ears started ringing.   It sounded like someone pulled the trigger of a shotgun next to my head.    It was Jason Zuback...  went back to my bag and felt like a spectator watching him pummel balls straight up hill into the trees at 370 yards out... with a fade.

Hideki hitting a long iron off the tee at Augusta on # 3...also Lucas Glover hitting a long iron off the tee at Quail Hollow.  Something about a bladed long iron and a pro's swing speed makes for such a pure cracking sound.

Michelle Wie hitting drivers at the 2014 Airbus Classic in Mobile, AL.  Have been to 20+ PGA Tour events and seen players from Nicklaus to Spieth (but not Woods) and can honestly say she smacks the hell out of the ball and it makes a big noise.

Tiger hitting a 3 wood off the tee at a Masters Practice Round.  It was amazing to hear and see.  I quickly realized he was playing a game I was not familiar with.

That she does and she was the first female that I ever Played with that took it 3 bills, lol

I looked at Madison, winced and then faked a groin pull, lmao

Seriously though, she can flat out bomb it and yea, she did have a very distinctive “crack” that if she were behind you on the line you would turn around to see who in the .......... was shooting off the gun, lol



Look at that separation!!!!

Stay well my Friends🍻

I apologize if this has been done before, but what's the loudest/sweetest crack off a club you've ever heard? For me, Saturday at the Ryder Cup, 2016, Sergio Garcia on the 11th hole. I heard Rory on 2 earlier in the day, and he hit an absolute ripper, but I've never heard a sound like Sergio's off a clubface before. It literally sounded like a firework.

Sandy Lyle off the tee in the 1985 Ryder Cup at the Belfry. I have yet to hear a sweeter sound, and the sound through the air.

I can't remember when (around 8 years ago?) but I was at the Kingdom in Ca., just got done getting fitted, enjoying the range and all of a sudden I hear this super loud sound ball meeting the club face.  I swear I think I felt the ground shake a little.  I turn around and it was Grant Waite smashing a prototype hybrid. Unreal.
