Who Is Charlie Reiter? The Biggest Hitter At The US Open Who Is Even Longer Than Bryson DeChambeau

Reiter has been making headlines at the 2024 US Open, with numerous videos of the American pummeling drives at Pinehurst No.2 sparking huge attention

It’s no secret that golfers are hitting the ball further and further, with players coming out of college demonstrating ball and club speed that we have rarely seen before.

At the 2024 US Open, attention is on the likes of favorites Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy but, alongside the superstars of the game of golf, Charlie Reiter has been grabbing the limelight due to his mammoth tee shots!

When you think of the longest hitters in the pro ranks, you are likely to think of Bryson DeChambeau, a former US Open champion and a golfer who finished second at the World Long Drive Championships back in 2022.

However, if you were to check out the field at the 2024 US Open, no-one hits it as far as Reiter, who has been cruising in-and-around the mid-to-high 190s in ball speed and, if he really leans on it, can surpass the 210mph mark!

According to his coach, George Gankas, “the kid is a freak”, whilst DeChambeau himself described Reiter as “crazy long” and “super, super powerful.” In fact, at Pinehurst No.2, he put one tee shot 30-yards past DeChambeau’s and even cleared the net surrounding the driving range with a 3-wood multiple times. Oh, that net is a 320-yard carry, by the way!
