THACKERVILLE, Okla. – The 2019 World Long Drive season wrapped up in spectacular fashion, with Chloe Garner (Somerset West, South Africa) and Kyle Berkshire (Orlando, Fla.) cementing themselves as the latest duo to join the select club of World Long Drive Champions. Garner found redemption against Phillis Meti (Auckland, New Zealand) in the championship match after finishing runner-up to the No. 1 ranked hitter in the Women’s Division two of the previous three years in the season-culminating event.
