Longest Personal Drive? - Page 17

post #289 of 304

My longest was 325 but that was down hill on a rock hard fairway.   My longest on flat ground is 305 and that was just about as much of a fluke as the 325 shot.    I've hit a few out to about 280 also  but I'm far more likely to be in the 240-250 range during a typical round.

I'm just amazed that people keep track of silly things like how far they hit their drives, let alone their longest....

Mine...498 yds.....

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously, who really cares..?  :-$

Why not keep track of these things, it's fun. It's no different than keeping track of when you got your first par/birdie/eagle, the longest putt you've ever made, first chip in, etc. I see no reason not to keep track of it. While I don't have any exact number for my longest drive I don't begrudge people who do.

We were on vacation in Gulf Shores, Alabama and decided to swing by Virginia Beach, Virginia and spend the night with my brother on our way home to Macon, Missouri.

Heck I looked at the map and it didn't look bad. Only halfway across the country out of the way. a2_wink.gif

Drove 24 straight hours from Virginia Beach to Macon and got there just in time for my 12 hour work shift at the coal mine. That was insane.

My longest drive, a country road runs parallel with the 18th hole, we had a strong cross wind, my booming dive was pulled and with the help wind my ball went way left and one hopped in the back of a pick up truck. I drove home after the round and was headed home on the same road....sure enough I saw the same colored pick up truck a good five to seven miles......well I had just enough beer in me to convince myself to pull a U turn and look for myself, sure enough in the back was my golf ball.

Mine was a 375 yard drive on a 500 yard par five. !25 yards out with a 9 iron. Made the putt for eagle. This was during a Fourth of July tournament on the long drive hole! Won a set of head covers.

LOL.....I agree.   With that said, I do remember what I consider my longest drive! .......this was 15yrs ago played on a complete piece of crap golf course with stupid wind conditions and cement fairways...........380yds.  (I can also recall at least a few near misses to the throne too) Because I didn't have "shot-link" working for me, I don't really know how accurate my estimate is, but in my own mind.....I hit that damn ball 380 and nobody can convince me otherwise.........LOL

I just realized that I responded to this thread in 2012!!   So I checked back to a 2yr old post to see if the passage of time has added length to my longest drive!! I found it on page 13....July 15, 2012.

 

 

Haha....at least NOT YET!  I just need more time;-)

382 yards on a par 5. Left with a gap wedge to the green. Driven a Par 4 at 348 yards once. Average ~280.

Could not agree more ... All I care about is it findable and playable ... if its actually in the fairway ...BONUS!!!  

 

I believe is all about the second shot anyway ...  because it seems when I "get a hold of one" ...I chunk the second shot anyway 

 

But to answer the question .. I honestly do not know, but I can promise you, it was wind at my back, down hill slope, and the ground as hard as pavement ... or more than likely it ran along the cart path for additional 50-75 yards ...

I hit one last year at Wintergreen Resort (the mountain course). It was at a higher elevation and it was a downhill par 5. 380 yards estimate going by the scorecard and sprinkler distance to green. I was 64 at the time and after that hit I recalled my younger days.
