Long-drive champion smashes watermelon with golf club, tee shot


Who knew Gallagher was working as a golfer?

2010 World Long Drive champion Joe Miller was at last week's BMW PGA Championship to perform at the European Tour's flagship event. While he was there, he took on a defenseless watermelon with one of his massive tee shots. The watermelon lost.


This isn't the first time -- and it won't be the last time -- a golfer with enormous swing speed has made a watermelon pay. But it never gets old to see it.
