Joburg Open: How Wilco hits it so far

So what is it that enables 21-year-old South African Wilco Nienaber to drive a golf ball further than anyone else in world professional golf, with the exception perhaps of American Bryson DeChambeau with whom he’s pretty much neck-and-neck in the 400-yard-plus category? …
