Mine was 410 with wind at my back. I just caught it right. Had 113 yds to the flag on a 523 yard par 5.

Re: your longest drive

Here are three that I remember (all measured with my SkyCaddie:

1) 380ish yds on a 370ish yd par 4 at Pecan Valley in Ft. Worth.
2) 364 yds at Banff Springs on whatever the par 4 is where the teebox is like 10 feet from the hotel.
3) 342 yds on the 18th at my home course (Champions GC - Jack Rabbit)

Re: your longest drive

Mine was very bittersweet because I lost the ball and wasn't able to verify the yardage. It was on a dogleg par4 which is about 270 to the rough, so I swing away because that is about as far as I can hit. Perfect contact, perfect ballflight, and the ball hits the ground and just takes off like a rocket (according to the guy I was with). There is only a about 20 yards of rough before you get to the porches of the houses on the course, which is where it must have gone. That was my definitely the closest I've had to 300, but I'll never know.

driver - nine iron to airmail the green on a 650 part 5. Not sure how long the drive was but it was fun to watch

Re: your longest drive

My longest drive occured on Jones Creek Golf Club on what was at the time their number 17 par 4. It is a slight dogleg left. I think that they've reversed the nines a time or two since so it may now be their number 8 par 4.

I'll not state the distance of the drive because it would sound simply absurd. I'd not believed it if I hadn't of experienced it firsthand.

The wind was howling from the tee box out towards the green. It was one of those days where golf was not a great option. ((The hole prior had a wicked hill to climb on the approach and the wind (right to left) made it even tougher. They've since redesigned this hole and taken the hill out....much easier.))

Anyway...the houses behind the tee box blocked the wind down low so a stable stance and swing was no problem.

I had just added a PING TiSI driver to my bag and thought I was John Daly. Those drivers rang in a new era in length for me.....huge sticks in that day.

I teed the ball higher than normal and set up so that I'd pick the ball up on my upswing. I took a couple of practice swings and grooved a long accelerating arc.

I hit the ball and it absolutely launched.....straight bullet that soared upwards while eating up distance. It did just as I hoped and made it up high into the crazy strong tailwind and disapeared past the gradual dogleg left.

My next shot was a lob wedge and then I two putted for par.

Re: your longest drive

#1 Center of the green on a 384 yard par 4. Two putted for birdie.

#2 Not sure of the distance but I hit the ball over the cart path behind the green on a 366 yard par 4.

Re: your longest drive

my longest measured drive per golfcaddie is 274 yards... im sure ive hit a few further than that but they would just be estimated distances...

i average about 220-230 and we rarely have wind around here and 98% of the fairways are fairly level....

Re: your longest drive

My longest “best” drive occurred two weeks ago on the par 4 9th at Murphy Creek (the ’08 U.S. Pub. Links Championship course). From the blue tee, it’s slightly uphill and 311 yards to the center of the green - on in one, and eagle.

Re: your longest drive

305 yards from a VERY elevated tee box.

Re: your longest drive

My longest drive was also my best hole ever. I don't remember the distance of the hole, but it was a par 4 with water to the right. A good drive for me goes about 250. This one went 280, dead straight, over the water, stopping right in the middle of the fairway. Then it was 5 iron (I think) to the green and 2 putt for par. That's probably an everyday occurance for some of you guys, but that was a damn good day for me!

That is so funny, i have actually taken the time to read this entire thread and discovered that this was the third time i had posted, but at least the number is the same on every post so i am clearly remembering the same drive!
