8 Longest Golf Drive Stories – Some Are Weird!


It’s really hard to evaluate the longest golf drives. Improved technology in distance measurement, club heads and shafts as well as the ball itself has made it easier to hit a golf ball further than it was in the days of Old Tom Morris.

Then there’s the variable of luck, good or bad and conditions play a big part too. It’s a lot easier to hit a ball with the wind than when it’s blowing across the right shoulder (what’s all that about anyway).

And context too – where is the player, is he trying to hit it a long way or just trying to get position in the final round at the august Augusta.

Anyway here are some great instances of very very big hitting. Some will be surprising and some unbelievable.
