    Yep. Had a few on that hole, the trick is to hit the front rim of the slight circular depression on the left edge of the fairway and it shoots off. But you need a bit of luck for the ball to stop before the rough on the back of the green, cause it doesn't count, if you end up in the rough.

      Yep . Good point . Good tip . And I hate it when that happens .

      I have a good one for you .

      Hole # 1 St Andrews .

      The drive bounces over the creek .

      Up on to the green .

      Make the Eagle shot .

      Did that 2 times .

      Recorded both of them . Both the drive and the eagle .

    That's a fair point. Before I had the drive in the video, I think that I had 3 other drives of over 400 yards that didn't count because they went into the rough.

    YouLostToALoser:

    Where are the places that 400 yard Tee shots are achievable

    Need:

    1 Course

    2 Hole Number

    3 Tee Box

    4 Wind conditions

    RSG #18 may not be the best place, but it works. 

    That was 401-402 yards, longest tee box, with a Titleist driver, and catching the downslope off the back of the bunker. (close to middle, but more off the back of the right bunker)

    If you wanted to try it on that hole, it would be easier to set it up as hole #1 on a custom course to get the wind that you want without having to play 8 holes first.

    My longest is 410; back nine Chambers Bay - can't remember the hole number offhand - maybe 13 (544 yards with a bunker the size of a small desert running up the left side and a small bunker in the middle of the fairway - heavy tailwind; 544 yard tees. TS3 L102 driver, L81 TP5+ ball, caught the downhill on the far side of the bunker and got a forward boost from that. The advantage of a huge drive on this hole compared to some of the others is that as you approach 400 or more, you are still getting close to the hole instead of running further past it.
