WATCH: McIlroy crushes drive ... in a spacesuit

Updated: 

Rory McIlroy is having no problems with the driver, seemingly even when wearing a spacesuit.

The Northern Irishman teed off at a sponsorship event at the US PGA Championship at Quail Hollow on Monday.

Dressed in a spacesuit - helmet aside - McIlroy appears to have hit a drive more than 300 yards, despite changing his grip.

Among the favourites for the year's final major, McIlroy was tied for fifth at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, where he hit 52 of 56 tee shots further than 300 yards.

Alongside a video of his latest and more unusual drive, McIlroy wrote on Instagram: "Houston, we have a problem".

Clearly not, Rory, clearly not.
