    Cracked Balls: Long Drive Pro's Sam and Bryce

    Cracked Balls: Long Drive Pro's Sam and Bryce

    What if I told you in today's episode, we are going to meet two of the longest drivers on the planet of the golf ball. Now imagine going to the driving range, teeing up the ball and hitting the ball so hard with your driver that you end up cracking the golf ball not once, but multiple times during your range session. Now, I'm great at imagining things, I am. But this one was hard for me to wrap my head around. This happens all the time to lawn drive guys.
    On today's episode, we meet Sam Attanasio | Pro Long Driver and his Bus. Training partner Bryce Mooney /Pro Long Driver. Sam is one of three people on the planet to record a ball speed of over 240 mph! Bryce hit a drive in competition last year of over 433 yards! They have a secret weapon that could take their training and results further and they reveal what that weapon is on the podcast. Here's the kicker, you can actually use the same weapon in your own gain to quickly add tons of distance to your game. 
    This one was one of my favorite interviews. These guys are extremely likable and their stories are so relatable and interesting. 
    Let us know what you think and this is the fist episode to what is turning out to be an amazing year for the pod already. We have multiple large collaborations confirmed and scheduled that will take our audience on an exciting ride this year.
