Many golf fans were introduced to golf’s newest bomber: Wilco Nienaber, a 20-year-old from South Africa. When Nienaber turned pro last year, he immediately vaulted to the top of the European Tour’s driving average with a whopping 341-yard average (which is 40 yards longer than the tour average!).
At the Joburg Open, he smashed a mind-boggling 439 yard average en-route to a second place finish, shooting rounds of 63-67-67-70.
Writer Luke Kerr-Dineen of GOLF.com takes a quick look at some of the reasons why Ninaber is able to hit the ball so far, and why we’re going to hear his name a whole lot more moving forward.
