Yep, I knew it would be that one before I clicked on it. He and several other players  made that course look too short for the modern tour, but it was fun to watch.  If he stays healthy, I can't imagine how he won't have a monster year.  He was not only ridiculously long, but also pretty darn straight and handy around the greens.

As good as that was, he was under zero pressure at that point.  To me, the shot of the year will come near the end of a tournament when someone does something spectacular to eke out a victory.

Fair point. However, even among touring pros there are very few who could match that shot under any circumstances. And though getting that close involves some luck, Iíve only seen a few shots like it.

Since 2018 just started that to me is the best drive of the year.  Last year and under pressure?  DJ's drive on the playoff hole with Spieth at the Northern Trust.  As for best "shot" in 2017, I would have to think about it.

Best "drive" of the year for sure.................always a little bit of luck is involved once the ball makes
contact with the ground that far from the hole. It was heading right for the hole when it stopped 5"
short. DJ could stand there and hit 200 more drives and not get one closer, lol.
