You can see in the footage, as Bubba's famous pink driver made contact with his ball on hole #2 at the TPC River Highlands course -- it obliterated, with the driver head separating from the shaft and flying dozens of yards away.
"That was crazy," one of the announcers said.
Yet, somehow, the ball still managed to go nearly 300 yards -- and land perfectly in the short grass!!
And, to make things even MORE impressive, Bubba went on to birdie the hole despite it all!!!
Under golf's rules, Bubba would be able to replace the driver mid-round if he could fix it ... although when his caddie tried to make it repairable -- it didn't seem to be going well.
