Long-drive star puts rules controversy behind him, wins World Long Drive
Championship

It was wild week for No. 1 ranked Long Drive competitor Kyle Berkshire.
One day after facing cheating accusations at the World Long Drive
Championship, Berkshire stormed through the final two rounds to win the
title, the first of his career.

While this is Berkshire first World Long Drive Championship title, it’s
not the first time he’s entered the winner’s circle on the WLD Tour.
Berkshire, who credits his 70% hearing loss for the heightened feel in his
hands, had two runner-up finishes early in 2019, before winning the ROC
City Rumble in July and the Tennessee Big Shots event in August.

random deafsports thoughts

What does DeafDigest Sports editor think of deaf long drive
golfer Kyle Berkshire winning the world championship
(above story)?

Is he a good golfer? Just because he can drive the ball long
range does not mean he is a good golfer. Can he reach the
greens without overshooting it? Can he putt? How is his
short range game, etc?

Could he beat Kevin Hall one on one in a real golf
match?
