Professional golfer hits 500-yard drive

You know that scene in the movie "Tin Cup," where Roy McAvoy (Kevin Costner) challenges David Simms (Don Johnson) to see who could hit the ball farther with a 7-iron.

McAvoy, of course, was a bigger hitter. However, Simms was smarter. He hit his ball onto the road, where it went bouncing and bouncing until he was declared victorious.

In case you are interested, the clip can be viewed here.

Why do we bring this up?

Well, professional golfer Louis Oosthuizen had a similar experience -- albeit accidentally -- during the second round of the Ballantine's Championship in Korea a couple weekends ago.

The ball hit a cart path and kept going, and going, and going, and going, and going, and...well, you get the idea.
