Phil Mickelson, noted bomb-dropper off the tee, got an up-close look at Bryson DeChambeau’s blasting ability on Thursday at the Travelers Championship.

Grouped together, along with fellow long-hitter Rory McIlroy, the power trio teed off on the back nine at TPC River Highlands. On the par-4 third hole, with all three men near the top of the leaderboard, DeChambeau unleashed the Kraken … and Mickelson was impressed.

DeChambeau’s drive measured 336 yards. His tee shot on the next hole, the 490-yard, par-4 fourth, went 349 yards. DeChambeau parred both holes.

All three players in the group performed well in the opening round. McIlroy led the way with a 7-under 63. Mickelson shot 64 and DeChambeau carded a 65.
