One long drive earned one long year’s worth of beer for Matthew Fitzpatrick last weekend.

The 21-year-old stands just 5-foot-9 and weighs little more than 150 lbs., but he mashed a drive 330 yards on the 9th hole at the Czech Masters Sunday. In claiming the longest drive of the day, Fitzpatrick won a year’s supply of beer.

But that wasn’t all. Fitzpatrick’s top 5 finish earned him an automatic bid onto the 2016 European Ryder Cup team, so he won’t be sweating the captain’s picks made by Darren Clarke in the coming weeks. Check out his mammoth drive below.

He seemed pretty thrilled about it afterwards.
