World Long Drive Is Growing
Maurice Allen, no not Marcus Allen, is your new long drive champion.
His winning drive travled 436 yards and he was using a Krank golf driver.
This just shows, the brand can sometimes be a backup option to more expensive companies and still perform the same if not better.
“This win means everything,” Allen said after the Mile High Showdown. “There are a lot of people who believed in me… all these people gave me an opportunity. And for a guy who was sleeping in his car five years ago because he wanted to be a Long Driver, it [doesn’t] get any sweeter than this.”
If you want to blame location, go ahead but it is hard to hit a golf ball that far no matter the conditions and Allen did just that.
Allen is a somewhat of a late bloomer to the game.
After graduated from FAMU, then he moved to Atlanta to become a chiropractor where he became a student of the game of golf.
Allen has the resume to back it up though, Maurice set a new Guinness World Record for Golf Ball Speed (211 MPH). His longest drive in competition is 459 yards.
With all the factors in place there is no reason Allen did not win.
The driver he used was a Krank golf driver that runs XXX stiffness and set to a loft of 3 degrees!
3 degrees on a driver is the craziest thing I have ever heard, but when the ball is leaving the club face around 200 miles per house. That is like the normal golfer trying to tee off with their putter.
It just isn’t happening.
World Long Drive has gotten a little bigger each year and for such a cool little event it draws a great crowd.
Lets hope next year is just as good if not better.
