Longest golf drive on the PGA Tour
Davis Love III
United States (Kapalua)

The longest golf drive on the PGA Tour in the ShotLink era (since 2003) is 476 yards, achieved by Davis Love III (USA) at the 18th hole of the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Hawaii, USA, during the fourth round of the Mercedes Championships on 11 January 2004.

Since 2003, the PGA have used the laser-based ShotLink system on all courses to measure the length of golf shots. Previous marks, such as Carl Cooper’s 787-yard drive at the 1992 Texas Open (which bounced along a concrete cart path) cannot be officially confirmed. Tiger Woods hit a 498-yard drive at the 2002 Mercedes Championship which was measured by ShotLink, but the PGA have since revised their figures, removing 27 drives at that tournament from the official record. In 2018, Dustin Johnson hit a 489-yard drive during the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, but statistics for match-play tournaments are deemed unofficial – leaving Davis Love III’s 476-yard drive as the current record.
