Reed, Philip"On Sept. 25, 1974, [Mike] Austin was playing in the US National Seniors Open Championship at the Winterwood Golf Course in Las Vegas, a course since renamed Desert Rose. Austin drew back and unleashed a blast that flew more than 400 yards, bounced in front of the green and came to rest 65 yards beyond the flag-stick. That shot set the Guinness world record as the longest drive ever recorded in a PGA tournament: 515 yards."Source: http://hypertextbook.com/facts/2004/CrystalCuevas.shtml
