Followers of the LET media sites will have noticed that “Power Drive Test by Bushnell” competitions have been running recently.
Last campaign finished on Tuesday and members of the public were invited to guess which player would hit the most powerful drive during the ISPS Handa Ladies British Masters,with the prospect of winning a brand new Tour Z6 Laser Rangefinder, worth approximately $600 USD.
This campaign showed again, as the previous ones, the power of the Ladies European Tour members and drew entries from over 400 contestants, but this time Roxanne Starkweather, from USA, was the lucky winner.
During this campaign, which featured the competition question: “Which player will hit the most powerful drive during the ISPS Handa Ladies British Masters?” the majority of contestants (over 24%, same as previous one) thought that Carly Booth would be the longest, followed by 22% who thought that it would be Laura Davies. The longest driving distance during the event was actually the same as last one, again recorded by Laura Davies with 315 yards during the first round on hole-11th. The second longest drive during the event was recorded by Jade Schaeffer during round one at 310 yards. Marjet van der Graaf hit it 300 yards. during the 1st and 2nd round, and someone told us that this was with a 3-wood!! Impressive!
Congratulations to Roxanne who can now start measuring her own driving distances using her new Bushnell Tour Z6 Laser Rangefinder.
