290 with a 3 wood. With a driver, probably 285 or so. On the launch monitor it was 355. I think it must've been a fluke because the swing speed said 135. My 3 wood swing speed is around 110. With a driver I'd be lucky to break 112.

New personal best drive 310meters with a 5iron The driving range wascovered with ice. I had no idea that an old Dunlop-iron would go that far. AND the ball heavier then lead!

365 downwind with the driver. I got two bounces off the cart path and then it rolled down a hill right into the middle of the layup area on a par 5.

FortAsel, those goals make you scarier to me at 10 handicap than a ho-hum scratch golfer. Good luck on them.

Re: Longest Personal Drive?

i have done the odd, ld event. 10th in euro indoors recently, will be doing a few events later in the year - should qualify for euro finals no probs i have the distance then plan to come to the usa to try and get into worlds. (around 20yards short of being contender for worlds) i know this as i have hit with top 8 finishers at mesquite.
qualifying in europe is tough with only 5 spots - prefer my chances at your districts

Re: Longest Personal Drive?

335...slight downhill with about a 5 - 10 mph wind behind me....it was the prettiest thing ever seeing the ball go straight and then disappearing until it re-entered the atmosphere....kidding. haha

Re: Longest Personal Drive?

Ripped one 360 at a course I played in a tournament in a few weeks ago(yes i had a witness) haha. But that course is hard as a brick so I only actually flew it like 270-280.

Re: Longest Personal Drive?

I've hit a few lucky bombs (usually with help from wind/hills), but I have a distinct favorite.

We were playing in Vegas while on a bachelor's party. One of the guys in our group was probably the biggest jerk I've ever met in my life - he was hitting on my gf throughout the round and generally being loud and obnoxious... if it wasn't for the combination of not wanting to ruin the party and the fact that my gf was making a fool out of him on her own, there would have been violence after the first couple holes.

Anyway, on this 340 yard dogleg left (downhill, with the wind), he kept saying he was going to hit the green, and asking my gf if he could do inappropriate things to celebrate (to which she responded with a litany of things she would rather do before letting him touch her, haha). He hits his shot, and he did crush it, but he ended up about 20 yards short in some light rough. I went after him, and it rolled right up onto the front of the green (totally on accident, but shhhh... haha). I winked at him as I was walking to the cart... the look on his face was great.

The bachelor's brother actually ended up beating the crap out of this guy later that night, for getting physically inappropriate with his wife... good times.
