Inaugural Long Drive World Series in Dubai

Tim Burke won the inaugural Long Drive World Series event at Dubai’s Jumeirah Golf Estates this past weekend, narrowly edging out wild card and American compatriot Ryan Reisbeck to take home the winning share of £50,000 (Dh227,678) in prize money.

More than 1,000 spectators witnessed two-time long drive world champion Burke edge a close contest with a winning drive of 335 yards, 5.5 yards farther than Reisbeck’s longest effort.
