Winning the world championship for long drive is no easy task. Just ask new long drive champion, Jeff Crittenden. With a 367 yard drive on September 1st, the "Critter" Jeff Crittenden was on the prowl. With a wind blowing into the competitors face at the WinStar World Casino and resort, the Greensboro, North Carolina, resident by way of Philadelphia knew what needed to be done.

It wasn't long ago, in 2014 in fact, that was supposed to be the year Critter retired but after finishing runner up by a mere 13 inches, Crittenden found a renewed passion and drive to be on top of the mountain. When asked what he would do with the 20,000 first place prize money, the owner of North Carolina Academy and driving range in High Point, said: "I'm looking at a ball dispenser for the range, fun right?" Crittenden will be performing at the Grunt Style golf classic 27 OCT in Orlando, Florida.World Long Drive has emerged as one of golf’s most popular grass-roots, sporting events. The competition is open to amateur and professional golfers alike. With an Open Division, Masters Division (Ages 45+) and Women’s Division, the sport appeals to golfers of all ages – whether you’re a competitor or spectator. The competition runs from late-spring to mid-fall, building up to an exciting culmination at the World Long Drive Championship – where champions from around the world come to compete for the world title.The adrenaline-drenched Championship has been described as “golf’s greatest spectacle” with competitors crushing 400+ yard drives. Competing in front of packed grandstands and under the bright lights of Golf Channel cameras, the World Long Drive Champion takes home a payday of $125,000, bragging rights and is awarded the coveted title belt. We're sure that Critter will be showing off that belt with pride any chance he can get--and he deserves every minute of it!Read more news articles here.
