The longest drive ever recorded by Tiger Woods during official competition was 425 yards. The shot occurred during the 2008 Mercedes Championship at Kapalua Resort in Hawaii.

The 18th hole at Kapalua Resort, where Tiger's longest drive occurred, is known for giving up long drives. The 663 yard par 5 features a long downhill slope that allows tee shots to roll for hundreds of yards after landing. Players often set personal drive-distance records on this hole, particularly when helped by a tailwind.

In 2004, Davis Love III hit a drive of 476 yards on the 18th at Kapalua, giving him the second-longest tee shot ever recorded in PGA golf.
