LONGEST GOLF DRIVE RECORD
WHO SET THE LONGEST
GOLF DRIVE RECORD?
By Ken Liebeskind
It's hard to believe that the longest golf drive record was set in 1974. But that's when Mike Austin hit his 515 yard drive in the U.S. National Seniors Tournament at the Winterwood Golf Course (now the Desert Rose) in Las Vegas that continues to be recognized as the longest golf drive record.
Austin's longest golf drive record was set on a 450 yard par 4. The drive carried to the edge of the green, bounced over and rolled off the back edge, 65 yards past the green to the next tee box.
For the longest golf drive record, Austin used a persimmon wood driver with 10 degrees loft and a 43.5" extra-stiff steel shaft. He set the longest golf drive record with a soft balata ball.

How can you set your longest golf drive record? 460cc drivers, with the largest heads permitted by the U.S.G.A. Rules of Golf are popular but how about a 460cc driver that's coated with an armor-piercing metal once used on Defense Department missiles that hits the ball even farther?
The coated head is the secret behind the Controller 460cc driver from www.scientificgolfclubs.com, the company renowned for its scientifically designed golf clubs and gear. The coating is twice as hard as steel and 70 percent harder than titanium, so it outhits all steel and titanium drivers. The Controller 460cc driver also features a 45 1/2 inch, 69-gram high-fiber graphite shaft that swings extra fast to help you maximize distance.
Golfers who tested the Controller 460cc driver hit drive 20 to 40 yards farther than their high priced clubs and a long ball champ said it's the most powerful driver he's used in over 20 years.
Long distance drivers frequently cost over $400, but you'll pay less than one third the price for the Controller 460cc driver from NGC Golf, which combines its scientific mastery with a low online price to make it the club that's impossible to beat.
