re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
~330

The ground was still frozen with a huge downhill, all you had to do was hit the fairway and it would go 280+

337 laser measured. Down hill, down wind in a tournament at Trophy Club in Texas. Won a long drive contest with that poke. I’ll never hit a ball that far again.

I average 270-280. I’ve knocked a few out there 320 or so.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
Longest drive that I'm positive of the number is 370 on #17 at Bayou Bend. Wind at the back and probably got about 30 yards of roll. Pin high in 1 and 3 putted for a par

Longest drive that I think I've hit is 380 at Irving Golf Club a few weekends ago. 393 to the center of the green and I was on the fringe along with a buddy of mine. Wind at the back again, though.

I likely average around 300 but not in my own fairway so it's useless

380

Normally drive it 250 or so these days - I am an old man.


380 Included a sprinkler head, a cart path and an oak tree

Not in that order!

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
Several years ago about 325, low drive on rock hard fairway ball rolled right to the side of the short Par 4 I was playing at Fashion in Hahnville (a GOAT Goat ranch)

Now, maybe 275-280 if I get really lucky downwind.

I started my day in a tournament like that. It did not lead to a good day.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
Can't get my swing speed over 105-110 to save my life so I'm pretty stuck in the 270 range. Maybe have gotten more with roll but who counts that.

I don't really understand the physics of guys hitting a 350 carry drive. I see Speith swing which looks like a little biotch and he can send it 310.

Last month I got one out to 322. I'm old so I don't like to step on it like that.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
I really think my longest drive is about 330 yards.

Par 4 12th hole at Bayou Oaks South Course is about 340 from the blues and one time I put my drive no further than 10 yards form the green.

Yeah I was glad to only have one hole left after that. I think if that had happened on #2 at BBCC, I'd have just left

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
I have a lot of natural distance, which is nice, but I can never get my shots to go where I want unfortunately

Driver goes about 300 total on a good hit, about 280 on average. My 7i is my 170 club for reference.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
Have gotten a couple 350+ before downwind and downhill albeit. Was on a trackman for the first time a couple weeks ago and was sitting around 116mph swing speed and 280 carry. This does not translate to good golf however, just happens when you are 6’4 215

Number 6 at University Club downwind and super dry. Almost in the creek after my drive.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
I was playing with a group from work at one of the RTJ golf course right outside of Orange Beach. It was the first (and only) time I have played this course. On the back nine, we came to a Par 5 where you were basically hitting into a small hill. My three playing companions all hit drives that basically went into the hill and either stopped or rolled backwards. I CRUSHED my drive and hit just shy of the top of the hill. I saw the ball pop up and then it went over the hill. I would say it was probably about 300-315 yard carry to the very top of the hill.

I had no idea what was behind the hill so I had no idea what had happened to my ball. When we reached the top of the hill I saw that there was a very steep DOWNWARD hill on the other side. I started looking for my ball right over the hill. The group that was ahead of us was with our company and they were down at the bottom of the hill hitting their third shot (over water) to the green. They started waiving us down.

As it turned out, my ball went all the way down the hill and had actually rolled passed their second shot.

We wound up having about 135 yards into a 525 yard par 5.


ETA:

The longest shot I've ever seen in person was hit by a guy I used to play with regularly. We were playing the old City Park West course and we came to the Par 5 18th hole. As I recall, it was about 515 yards. He kind of shanked a drive right into the line of oak trees to the right. The cement cart path was just to the right of the trees and basically went under the trees. Fortunately for him it went straight through all of the branches and leaves and hit the cement cart path SOLID. It then took a high bounce (almost hitting the branches) and just started bouncing down the cart path. It went at least 225-250 straight down the cart path and then came out the other side of the line of oak trees into a clearing. We were just staring in amazement as we watched it bounce STRAIGHT down the cart path.

He wound up having about 45 yards to the green on a shot that couldn't have traveled more than 225 yards.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
about 435 yards at 12k feet above sea level.


But usually closer to 265 at 6 inches above sea level, or where we're at down here.
