JOE MILLER | WORLD LONG DRIVE CHAMPIONSHIP

Londoner Joe Miller picked up a cheque for $125,000 after capturing the World Long Drive Championship for a second time.


Facing off against Ryan Steenberg in the final, Miller, who last won the competition in 2010, recorded a longest drive of 423 yards, eclipsing his opponent’s best effort of 412 yards.

But 423 yards was far from Miller’s best effort in the competition. In the quarter-finals, he drove one 437 yards while, in the semis, he bettered that by two with a monstrous 439-yard strike.

Understandably, Miller was delighted. “It’s been building up since 2010,” he said. “Working hard, training hard and coming up short a lot of the time. It doesn’t feel like 2016, it feels like the last five or six years.
"I’ve made some amazing friends along the way" - Joe Miller

“What I do is great. I’m very privileged to do it. I get to come to places like this and have some fans cheering you on. I’ve made some amazing friends along the way and I just can’t say anymore than that.”

Miller’s and his competitors’ efforts drew positive comments from golfers including Bubba Watson, Thomas Pieters and Ross Fisher.
