Agreed. After watching the shot several more times, I'll agree that the shot wasn't as amazing as Bubba made it out to be--but still a pretty awesome shot.
Louis's shot was fantastic, amazing, and spectacular. He holed it for a double eagle from 260. But the shot itself was a high draw that flew 240, executed from a perfect fairway lie. I can hit that shot, although not with a 4-iron. The fact that he landed it exactly where he wanted is perfect execution, but not a shot that most tour pros can't hit.
Surely Mr. Faxon was saying that most pros couldn't make that shot with a 4-iron. But with a 2/3 hybrid, or a 5-wood--any tour pro has that shot.
