GOLF: Europe's big hitters coming to Heathfield

Oxford Mail: Germany’s Timo Petrasch puts everything into this drive at the last Long Drivers European Tour competition Germany’s Timo Petrasch puts everything into this drive at the last Long Drivers European Tour competition

Big hits are guaranteed at Heathfield Park this weekend as it hosts the latest round of the Long Drivers European Tour.

The venue at Bletchingdon, which was officially opened last November, has been selected for the LDET’s first visit to the UK.

It comes a week after the second round of the season, when Englishman Joe Miller won the final in Karben, Germany, with a drive of 374.6 yards.

A group of 16 qualifiers will take part in the knockout event from 3pm on Saturday.

They will be paired together and hit six balls each. The player with the longest ball in bounds will progress to the next round until only a champion is crowned.

The event begins on Friday evening with the qualifying rounds of the amateur event, while there are also competitions for ladies and juniors.
