The stakes have been raised for the Finalists at this year’s American Golf Long Drive Championship in association with Garmin. The Championship, which is in its second year, has been named as the only UK qualifying event for the World Long Drive Championships. In a deal struck between American Golf and Golf Channel, the American Golf Long Drive Championship retains its exclusive official International Long Drive qualifying status in the UK for the next three years.

The American Golf Long Drive Championship in association with Garmin will be the only UK event where participants can automatically qualify for the World Long Drive Championship. Golf Channel will provide editorial coverage of the event where the winners of the Open, Over 45s and Ladies events will go on to represent American Golf and Garmin at the World Long Drive Championship at WinStar World Casino and Resort from 6th – 12th October 2016.

“American Golf has done a fantastic job of attracting thousands of golfers to its long drive championships, so we are thrilled to make them our official UK partner. Long Drive is an exciting, fun sport and with American Golf’s involvement we hope to bring it to even more people in the UK over the next few years,“ comments Bart Kendall, VP Live Events at Golf Channel.

The qualifying rounds of the American Golf Long Drive Championships in association with Garmin took place in store in early April. Regional Finals are currently underway across the UK & Ireland, with the 10 best long drivers in each category being invited to the Grand Final at High Legh Golf Club on Friday 19th August.
