The Rock Allegedly Smashed a 490-Yard Drive


Nobody in the history of entertainment arguably has had more of a transformation in careers than like Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson. Starting out as a professional wrestler, he parlayed his acting prowess into Hollywood stardom. Apparently, he can also hit a golf ball unbelievably far.

On Tuesday, Johnson posted this photo on Instagram of himself on a tee box from the set of his HBO TV show “Ballers.” Based on the caption, he claimed to hit this particular drive a whopping 490-yards. If The Rock said it, then it’s got to be true. However, without no video evidence, it seems a bit suspect (no offense, Mr. Johnson):

“The world record longest drive is 515 yards set in 1974. My drive here measured an estimated 490 yards by the scientists holding the rulers. I failed math when I was a kid, but I think that’s kinda close. One fun day I will break the world record. Great day on the links shooting scenes for our HBO’s Ballers. Subsequently, I also hit two other great balls… when I stepped on a rake. Ok, no more BS haha.. back to work. Have a productive day.”
