It's hard enough to hit a drive as straight as possible, but imagine sending a drive 300-plus yards while also trying to land it on a 1-yard-wide fairway.

Well, Rory McIlroy, Tyrrell Hatton and Collin Morikawa attempted to do just that in a contest from the DP World Tour. And three of the best golfers in the world learned quickly how difficult the challenge would be and strapped in for a long and wild ride. 

Finally, after several close calls in which the ball hit the 1-yard strip but rolled off it, Hatton finally ended the competition, proving that even though the task was arduous, it can be done.
