re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
I hit a new driving PR yesterday. Popped off about 330-340 on the last hole to have a 156yd approach shot on a par 5. Hit a good solid approach about 13 ft from the pin and missed the eagle putt by about a half inch. Pretty disappointing, but not in a position to complain about a tap in birdie

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
Hit my best drive ever on a 448 yard Par 5 in Fort Walton. I don't recall the wind blowing too hard, although i would assume I had to have some help from it, and i'm sure the ground was hard, but it wasn't a downhill shot or anything, hole was pretty flat throughout. The guys playing in front of me where on their 3rd shot. They weren't on the green, but were close to it, so i figured i was good to go. I knew when i hit it that it was the best drive i've ever had. It definitely felt different, like when you hit a baseball on the sweet spot and you barely feel it on the bat. Ball ended up rolling right into the guys ahead of me. I apologized the second i got up there and they all said they were about to get pissed off until they looked back and realized i was at the tee box. I was playing by myself, but the one of the guys had a range finder and said it was about 388 yards. Then they bought me a beer. then i proceeded to get a bogey on the hole b/c i have no short game.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
My longest drive that I remember was at Achafalaya @ Idlewild #13 (Par 5) I don't know the distance of the drive but my approach to the green was 133 yards. Hole was playing downwing and I hit the backside of the mounds on the left side of the fairway.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
I actually hit one 267 yesterday.
It was a gentle downhill, downwind hole. Dry conditions.
Longest drive for me this year.
Basically a seven iron for most of this board.

Hit sand wedge to 12 feet and made the putt.

I waste a good drive like that sometimes.
Golf is hard.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
I don't recall any memorable ones off the top of my head. Played twice last week and had multiple well over 300 yards as there was a decent breeze both days. Longest carry was a 340 hole downhill, downwind. I one hopped it into the green side bunker.

How far you hit a drive has about a dozen factors so it's not a very good metric.

For the record my swing speed on normal drives is 112-115 and I can get a little more out of it when needed. Max I can carry it in normalized conditions is about 290.

That is great speed.

I’m lucky to swing 90mph.

re: What’s y’all’s longest drive
Longest I’m aware of is 317, only know because I was pin high on a short par four and missed what would’ve been my first eagle by an inch. Feel like 1 other drive has gone further than that one but I didn’t shoot it. Usually in the 270-280 neighborhood
