LONG­EST DRIVE

Golf World (UK) - - SPIN -

Dustin John­son and Hud­son Swaf­ford hit it 430 at the Sen­try Tour­na­ment of Cham­pi­ons. If you want to add yards, The Plan­ta­tion Course at Ka­palua is the place to be. The six long­est drives of 2018 were all recorded there and it has yielded more 400-yard-plus drives than any other course in PGA Tour his­tory; 430 yards is, though, way short of the long­est drive ever of­fi­cially recorded on the PGA Tour – Davis Love III’s 476-yarder at the 2004 Mercedes Cham­pi­onship. We say ‘of­fi­cially’ be­cause Tiger’s 498-yard ef­fort at the 2002 Mercedes was not ac­cepted into the record books and DJ’s 489-yarder at the 2018 WGC-Dell Match Play doesn’t qual­ify as match­play events don’t count to­wards of­fi­cial records.
