Isn't there a video on youtube of Mcbeth throwing 600-something feet on his initial drive on flat ground to score an eagle on a par 5 hole?

Yeah, the cliff is totally cheating for this discussion, but 1000' on a laser is still epic!

There were a couple 500+ foot rollers on hole 2 of Worlds this year by Eagle and Jerm as well.

Eagles's drive on #2 this year at Winthrop during the USDGC is the longest drive I have ever seen at a tournament.

I threw a Pure about 500 feet in a tournament once. I barely even put anything on it.



I needed two throws to get back up the hill and then a putt to actually hole out...

Henry Childres put a drive pin high at USDGC one year on hole 11. Thats pretty impressive.
