The best 8 European Long Drivers will compete at the MASTERS CUP next 20 October
The championship will take place at Panorámica Golf Resort, near Castellón (Spain)
8th August 2018. - The Long Drivers European Tour will celebrate the final event of the season next Saturday 20th October with the MASTERS LDET CUP, at Panorámica Golf Resort (Castellón). The competition will bring together the 8 best European hitters of this discipline in an spectacular final event.
The German player Robin Horvath leads the LDET ranking. The ranking is more adjusted and exciting than ever; Robin has a slim 200 point lead over “The Beard” Martin Borgmeier, which means we can anticipate more matchups between the top two German bombers in the next 3 events. At the moment 5 players are already qualified for the big finals (Horvath, Borgmeier, Brooks, Nicolle & Lubbe) and the next 2 events will decide who take the other 3 spots. PRESS RELEASE
Third win of the season for Robin Horvath!

Neither slowed down in the quarterfinals, with Horvath’s 399 and Borgmeier’s 407 topping the round of 8. Vincent Palm and Dewald Lubbe (S. Africa) advanced to the semis with 388-yard and 392-yard blasts respectively. PRESS RELEASE / RESULTS
Jordan Brooks: European Putting Champion
Saturday 14 July, Zalacsany.- The LDET bombers descended on Zala Springs Golf Resort on July 13, a little early for the Hungry Championship, but not for the reason you’d expect. Second-ranked LDET player Robin “The Hungarian Hulk” Horvath welcomed his fellow players to his home country for the inaugural European Putting Championship, organized by the tour.
A stark contrast from the usual high-flying competition, the European Putting Championship saw the best players on Tour navigating the undulations of the Zala Springs practice green. The competition came down to two notable LDET names, Jordan Brooks (ENG) and Vincent Palm (GER), vying for the trophy, with Brooks walking off the winning putt and claiming the title of the first-ever LDET European Putting Champion.

4t June 2018, St. Petersburg.- A couple things that Martin Borgmeier has in common with his beard: Borgmeier’s name is also “Beard,” and his beard is long and impressive, much like Borgmeier hits it long, and his 2018 season has been impressive.
The tour’s no. 1-ranked player added another notch to his 2018 belt after claiming the first-ever Russian Championship this past weekend, cushioning his lead in the fight for the 2018 LDET title. 2017 Champion Matt Nicolle and his fellow countryman Jordan Brooks finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
While Nicolle has remained competitive all season and is always a safe bet, it seemed nothing could have stopped Borgmeier in the final round. The Beard dropped three consecutive 400-yard bombs in the finals 417/402/405 besting Nicolle’s 365/405/389 and adding the Russia Championship trophy to his staunch 2018 resume.
