GCT Media Company Limited as the Thailand Long Drive Championship tournament organiser with Khun Kantapoj Kitirattasiri, Executive Chairman along with sponsoring partners, has presented the Thailand Long Drive Championship for the second consecutive year between January and March 2019
The tournament included the total prize money of over 300,000 THB as well as trophies to honour the winners with the final being held on 9th March at Hua Hin’s renowned Black Mountain Golf Course. The tournament was to find the most powerful person to drive the ball as far as possible. The winner will now represent Thailand at the World Long Drive Championship 2019 in Oklahoma, USA between 30 August – 4 September this year.
The competition aimed to create opportunities for both professional and amateur golfers to participate in developing their competitive potential to compete internationally. Qualifying rounds were organised with five tournaments in four regions between January and March. The final round of competition at the Black Mountain Golf Club, Hua Hin, was on the evening of Saturday 9 March.
The event was conducted from a temporary raised tee box adjacent to the club house bar. Each finalist was awarded three minutes to drive eight balls in a ‘match play’ format. This was achieved with ease as an example of why multiple practice swings and lengthy contemplation makes little difference to the success of the shot but a big difference to the speed of play during a standard round.
