Official World Long Drive Rules

Not competing in the pro circuit yet? 

Three-step Process

The World Long Drive Championship is open to everyone- pros and amateurs alike and involves a two-step qualifying process. Step one is Stage 1 (Local) qualifying. Step two is Stage 2 (Regional) qualifying and Step 3 is the World Championship.


Stage 1 (Local) Qualifying

The Open Division road to the World Championship begins with a Stage 1 (Local) qualification event where you show up ready to “give it your best shot”. Time and space permitting you may enter multiple times.

The total number of entries (tries) at a Stage 1 (Local) qualifying event determines how many competitors advance to the Stage 2 (Regional) qualifying event. For every 7 paid tries (per qualifying event), one Stage 2 (Regional) Qualification spot will be awarded. Ex. 7+ entries = 1 Regional; 14+ entries = 2 Regionals; etc. Based on total entries, as many as 7 hitters will advance to Stage 2 (Regional Championship).

To increase your chances to qualify for the World Championship, enter as many local qualifiers as you like and compete in more than one Stage 2 Event (Regional Championship).

Entry Fees: All subsequent tries purchased are $50.00 for six balls.


Stage 2 (Regional) Qualifying

You are now one step away from qualifying for the World Championship and a chance at claiming the title “Golf’s Biggest Hitter”. Winners from the local competition will advance to the Stage 2 (Regional) Championship

Competitors must pre-register for the event online at prior to the competition. Five competitors qualify for the World Championship from each Stage 2 (Regional) Event. All competitors are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses.

Entry fees: $250.00 (Competitors must have a WLD Amateur or Pro Membership)


The World Finals

Congratulations on advancing to the “most exciting spectacle in golf”. Top finishers at Stage 2 (Regional) Events advance to the World Championship. There is no entry fee at the World Championship for those competitors that qualified through Stage 2.
