Bryson DeChambeau continued to pulverise the Whistling Straits with long drives, with the American finding the putting surface with his very first tee shot in the singles.

DeChambeau (opens in new tab) had been teasing it all week, but over the first two days he hadn't come close, actually hitting a spectator (opens in new tab) on the first day.

However, facing off against Sergio Garcia in the Sunday singles, the big-hitting American would carry it on to the front edge, with the drive finishing on the middle of the green..

Not only did he drive the green, but the 28-year-old rolled in the eagle putt, sending the spectators around the 1st in to absolute fanfare!

Featuring in both the fourball sessions, DeChambeau has registered some mammoth tee shots in Wisconsin, with a 417-yard drive (opens in new tab) on the par-5 5th at Whistling Straits (opens in new tab) the standout.

After the conclusion of the Ryder Cup on Sunday, the American will head to the Long Drive World Championship's (opens in new tab) in Mesquite, Nevada.
