The first field goal was about two miles long. I know, that sounds insanely short, but it's true. I saw it, back in 1942, when Colombus sailed the ocean blue. It was hot dude.

It depends on where it is kicked from. It would be the yardage from where the ball is snapped plus the additional 10 yards of the endzone plus seven yards (the typical yardage the holder sets behind the center).
