WATCH: Min Woo Lee Hits 365 Yard 2-Iron

Min Woo Lee won his maiden European Tour title at the Vic Open with a two stroke victory over Ryan Fox.

The venue for the Vic Open is 13th Beach Golf Links in Geelong, near Melbourne, where conditions are currently quite firm.

One of the firmest spots on the course must be the 18th fairway.

Players don't even need to hit driver to reach the 530+ yard par-5 in two, which, during tournament week at least, is essentially reduced to a medium-length par-4.

Evidence of this was in the third round where Min Woo Lee hit an incredible 2-iron around 365 yards to leave a mere 160 yards into the par-5 green.

It must also be said that the wind was howling from behind but still!

"I think it's the longest drive we've seen on 18 and he did it with an iron in hand," the commentator said.
