Lucas won the 2016 Long Drive Championship with a winning drive of 368 yards. He left it late in both semi-final and final, recording his winning drives with the last ball in his set.

"I'm delighted to have won the American Golf Long Drive Championship in my first ever Long Drive event,” commented Lucas after his win. “I knew from looking around the swing speeds of the other competitors that if I hit it well I'd be among the leaders. I‘d clocked 152mph during the day so I knew I was swinging it fast but was just missing the middle of the club, so it was a relief when I managed to get a legal drive on my last hit in both Semi Final and Final. From qualifying in store through regionals and to the final, I've had a fantastic experience and can't thank American Golf and Garmin enough for giving me the chance to go on and compete with the best in the world."
