Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson AKA Mr. Humble Brag Claims To Have Hit A 490-Yard Golf Drive

The world record longest drive is 515 yards set in 1974.
My drive here measured an estimated 490 yards by the scientists holding the rulers. I failed math when I was a kid, but I think that’s kinda close. One fun day I will break the world record.
Great day on the links shooting scenes for our HBO’s #Ballers.
Subsequently, I also hit two other great balls… when I stepped on a rake.
Ok, no more bullshit haha.. back to work. Have a productive day. #OnSet #Ballers #LasVegas #TheGolfingBeast 🏌🏾 Big shout out to my bud and the man himself @jordanspieth for my gear 👊🏾

I know I’m in the minority here because The Rock seems like a gentle giant who visits hospitals and gives to charities and yada yada, but he is the KING of the humble brag. He’s clever with it too because he’ll throw in a couple self-depreciating jabs in, but the brag always outweighs the self-burn. Self-burn: “I failed math when I was a kid.” Brag: “I’m an actor who just fucks around and almost breaks 50 year records because I’m big, strong, talented, and have a white smile.” Oh ya, I almost forget, the empowerment piece: “Have a productive day.” Wow, The Rock really cares about me!

I say all this knowing that if I ever spent time with the dude, I’d name my son after him. But until then, I don’t need to be constantly reminded of how much more evolved of a man he is than me.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
