Long Drive Competition between John Daly and Jim Dent (1993)

/Long Drive Competition between John Daly and Jim Dent

Click on the link above to watch.

In 1993, while serving as head golf professional at the TPC at The Woodlands and host professional to the Shell Houston Open, John Daly and Jim Dent participated in a Long Drive Competition held on Tuesday of tournament week.

It was unheard of how far John Daly could hit the ball!  I witnessed this event which was conducted on the par 4, tenth hole.  What was amazing, and you can't really see on this video, is how Daly was hitting his ball high and over the tall pine trees at the dogleg and Dent was hitting a hook around them.  

Enjoy watching!
