Landon Gentry Wins Inaugural WinStar Midwest Slam in Thackerville, OK
Swing Snap Golf LLC would like to congratulate Landon Gentry on his recent World Long Drive Association (WLDA) victory at the inaugural WinStar Midwest Slam in Thackerville, OK.
Gentry outdrove 32 WLDA competitors including 9 of the top 10 in the Official World Long Drive Rankings to obtain the 1st place prize of $10,000.
Long Drive beasts like Tim Burke and Will Hogue were no match for Landon Gentry this week, as Gentry hit drives of 370, 382 and 392 yards respectively in the Double Elimination Round. Gentry segued into the Match Play portion by edging Kevin Shook by a yard in the initial bracket, then defeated Brady Torbitt by hitting a longest drive of 375 yards to get into the Final against Paul Howell. In the Final, Gentry smashed one of the longest drives of the entire event by scorching a 403 yard bullet. This was good enough to take down the talented Howell for the check and the trophy. Gentry is clearly off to a hot start as he's back in the top 10 of the Official World Long Drive Rankings. We look forward to tracking all of his accomplishments this season.
On a side note, Gentry was just featured on Golf Channel's Morning Drive where he drove the 18th green at Colonial Country Club in the simulator. The entire golf world is taking notice of such hard work and talent. Again, congratulations to our Brand Ambassador Landon Gentry!
