PGA Tour Drives of More Than 400 Yards

Shawn Stefani
AT LAST WEEK'S FRYS.COM OPEN, Shawn Stefani hit a 401-yard drive on a 410-yard hole. There was a caveat: Stefani's smash was a cart-path-aided drive.

"There's no way I could have hit one of those without the help of concrete," Stefani told

Another thing: "I made par," Stefani commented. "So it is what it is."

These guys who are good are also long off the tee. How long? The tour published the following chart showing drives of 400-plus yards in recent seasons.
