This March, reigning World Long Drive champion Joe Miller will be one of eight players going head-to-head on golf’s most exciting new battleground: The Long Drive World Series.

Eight competitors, each a champion in their own right, have been hand-picked to play and will start their campaigns under the spectacular night lights of Dubai.

The World Series is made up of four events that will take place at iconic venues across three continents.

The Jumeirah Golf Estates European Tour Performance Institute in Dubai plays host to the first event on March 17 and the confirmed line-up reads like a who’s who of Long Drive.

Those on the roster include the current World, UK and European Long Drive champions, while the event will be hosted by Di Dougherty and Sarah Stirk and live streamed across the world.

“I am really excited to be competing in Dubai in the first Long Drive World Series; an amazing location with an elite field of proven winners from around the world,” said Joe Miller, reigning World Long Drive champion. “It’s going to be an exciting event and hopefully I can reign in the desert.”

With the format, there is an Open wildcard place at every event, an early exit for one person at the seeding round and the prospect of sudden-death knockouts in every round.

Each event has a significant prize fund and the ultimate aim is to win the entire World Series with league points being allocated according to where the players place at each of the four events.
