We couldn’t locate the 463 yards bomb from the 2011 Deutsche Bank Championship, but this ought to give you an idea of what it looked like!

Technology had come a long way in golf during those 10 years. It’s always worth noting just how insane some of the feats Tiger was accomplishing back in the day!

The 2011 Deutsche Bank Championship was held at TPC Boston. Webb Simpson won the event in a sudden-death playoff against Chez Reavie. Both finished the tournament 15-under through 72 holes. Simpson defeated Reavie with a birdie on the 2nd hole (Hole #17) of the playoff.
