Although the American didn't go for the green, he still managed a huge drive of 377-yards, carrying the lake and leaving himself only 88-yards for his second shot.

DeChambeau's playing partner, Lee Westwood, took a more conservative route off of the sixth tee, hitting a 305-yard drive that left him 255-yards in, A full 167-yard difference.

Watch Westwood's great reaction to his drive on the sixth:

Despite the difference in distance, their second shots finished only a yard apart from one another, coming to rest just to the right of the greenside bunker.
