Here’s how far World Long Drive champ Kyle Berkshire hits every club in his bag

Kyle Berkshire does some pretty amazing things to the golf ball. The two-time World Long Drive champ routinely tops clubhead speeds of 150 mph and recently surpassed 233 mph of ball speed. Those numbers have made him the undisputed king of the World Long Drive scene.

But Kyle is also an avid golfer in his own right. One who was once ranked fourth in the state of Maryland as a junior golfer then went on to play college golf — and has eyes on trying to make pro starts in the future, too.

At the recent GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers Summit (which you can watch here) Berkshire spoke about some of the challenges he needs to navigate when he’s on the course imparting so much speed onto the ball. Mainly: he needs to learn to control the mind-boggling amount of spin he puts on the golf ball.

But when he does that, Berkshire enjoys the best of both worlds: Hitting his irons longer than you could ever dream of. In a recent Instagram post, he shared his through the bag numbers for each of his clubs. They’re pretty astonishing.

So the next time you’re 200 yards out and wondering if a 4-iron can get there, just remember that Kyle Berkshire is hitting a smooth 8-iron from that distance.
