PostSubject: New Record at Thai Long Drive Contest   Wed Nov 04, 2009 10:52 pm

My friend Kunnasak just called me and the great news is a new record of 347 yards was recorded in this year's Long Drive Event.

the winner is an 18 year old who is using the BFG Graman series 8, XXS. i don't know who came in second, but the 3rd winner is also using the BFG Graman 5 series in X flex.

those who did not win was amazed with the performance of the shaft and immediately wanted to reshaft their drivers.

the above winners were not sponsored but paid for their shafts. Last year's winner has immediately pulled out his Crazy Long and will be using the 8 series next week.

i hope to update event link, photos and more news soon.

i've reached 307 yds (280m) on my longest legitimate drive to date, no lucky bounces or wind helping, with the sq 5900's diamana R (US) spec shaft/driver. avg is only 220-250m though but would anybody suggest trying a different shaft or is the diamana stuff gd enuff?

btw, longest illegitimate drive was like 320m, with a bounce off a buggy path running across the fairway. ^^ what a feeling...

here are the pix of the Long Drive Contest.

contestants before the final...you can see the winner Pakorn Pongwanit second from right...i got it wrong, he is 16 years old not 18. the 2nd runner up is first from the left. for a moment i thought Jason Chien became Thai.



winner in action...do you know what driver head he is using?



the prize presentation and the new record of 347.5 yards



more news, the ladies champion is Areeya Jutanukran who drove 283 yards and she is a 14 year old. she is currently using Crazy Long but her coach who is Shorthitter's good friend wants her on BFG Graman by next week.

if you can read Thai, check out this link...

Solid impact position!

I'm guessing a Titleist D2 or D3 driver?

what do you think if we bring in both champions and compete with our local boys and girls?

we can come up with seed money to host the event.

Great idea.

I think it will need your Trackman to configure for outdoor use though. I dun know of any ranges that can take those distances.

no worries Rex...our TrackMan is set for launch and pro use.

i am sure TrackMan will gladly sponsor some outdoor hours.

i also know of a driving range that have more than 350 metres driveable length.

how about the GR Long Drive Contest....sunny?
