The competition runs from late-spring to mid-fall, building up to an exciting culmination at the World Championship – where champions from around the world come to compete for the world title
The World Long Drive Championship (Oct. 6-12), will feature an 80-man match play bracket, which will be narrowed to 16 competitors ahead of Golf Channel’s back-to-back nights of coverage, with the champion earning a $125,000 first place prize.
The winner also will be presented with a new, custom-designed Championship belt.

The belt itself is the result of more than 100 hours of craftsmanship with hand-tooled leather and precision machined 6061-T6 aluminum.
