2017: "I want to break the Dutch record!"

April 29th 2017.- The LDET player Bob de Boef (??, 40) wants to improve his results and break the Dutch record!

"Last year I had an amazing time in my rookie season and this year I hope to do better in the knock-out phase and maybe even get to a final. I also have my eyes on the Dutch national record of 417 yards which I need to add another 10 yards to my best drive of last season so on a good day and under perfect circumstances this should be possible"

First words as a new LDET player

17th January.- The 2016 season will be a spectacular year for the tour having events in some of the best golf resorts in Europe. 

As a new player, what does it means for you to be part of the LDET circuit? I've been playing golf since the age of 12, and as long as I can remember I have always been obsessed by hitting the ball as far as I can. As a kid I was inspired by my father, who was a big strong guy and in my perception the longest driver in the world. As I grew up most people around me have tried to convince me that length of the tee is not very important, but they were wrong! In my head I'm still the same golf player as when I was a young kid: hitting the golf ball very far is the coolest thing there is in golf! :)

Are you training hard for the season? For the last 20 years fitness has played a major part in my life. Since I started long driving (2015) I have changed the way I train, it's all about explosiveness and speed now. Being 6 feet tall I'm not as big as most of the other competitors, so I try to make up for that with power. To me the physical part is equally important as the technique; in order to win you need to have both. It's great to see how regular golfers have embraced strength training as part of their regular training routine (basically since the arrival of Tiger Woods), I hope I can inspire golfers around me to hit the gym and improve their game by working out.

What are your your goals for the current season? The 2016 is my first full year on the LDET and my goals are:

  • Finish in the top 10 of the ranking
  • Reach the semi-finals at least once
  • Break 400 yards

Next tournament: 28th & 29th July
