Q: How far can a woman hit a golf ball? (A: Farther than you.)
New Zealander Phillis Meti just shattered the Women’s U.S. Long Drive Competition record with a wallop of 349 yards. The shot was 22 yards longer than the drive she won the competition with in 2006, although she ended up coming in second in the all-important for the second consecutive year.
So…what driver did she hit? In fact, it was a model that won’t hit store shelves until Nov. 12: The SMT DB Plus.
The eight loyal readers of this blog will recall that SMT Golf, a small Illinois company, has been on quite a tear in the long-drive circuit of late. (Well, ever since they broke into the business, actually.)
According to Mike Tait, pre-orders for the DB Plus are 96% sold out already, so if you’re interested in laying hands on this big stick, you should contact SMT fast.
Congrats to Phillis and SMT, again.

On topic though - yep, the SMT equipment is making a splash on the long-drive curcuit. However, I still think the folks at BANG GOLF are putting out a great product (use them myself, actually...lol....plug for them).
