Conforming Club Long Drive Series - Ontario Canada
« on: April 08, 2014, 10:57:31 AM »
Conforming Club Long Drive Series

If you enjoy pulling out your driver and “bombing it off the tee”” then this series is for you!  The goal of the Conforming Club Long Drive Series is to provide an avenue for golfers of all abilities to experience the sport of long drive.  During the summer of 2014, there will be three events where you can come and hone your driving skills, experience the fun of competition and compete for great prizes. 

Rules:

Participants compete in one of three divisions:
•   Women
•   Senior (45+)
•   Men’s Open (19 – 44)

All clubs used in competition must align to the rules of golf regarding shaft length and conforming heads.  Clubs will be inspected upon registration.  To facilitate this process club length will be limited to a maximum height of 49" measured in the upright standing position (this translates equally to the 48” USGA measurement).  Links to the specific rules are provided below for reference.
