Scott Beaven, loving long drive experience

19th January 2014.- He has just arrived into the hitters’ scene. Scott Beaven was the surprise in his first official long drive competition (Mijas, September 2013). He also got a spot in the World Finals where finished into the top-24. It is a spectacular balance for a rookie in the Long Drivers European Tour. Since then, Scott Beaven (UK) is an experimented regular golf player focusing in improves his swing and ball speed. Keep an eye on him. You will hear a lot about of him next season.

What do you do besides golf?

Golf does take up most of my time as I am a Teaching Professional at Wokefield Park Golf Club just outside Reading. I do enjoy football and try to get to as many Chelsea home games as possible. When not involved with sport I love spending time with my girlfriend Hannah and all my mates, usually down the pub.

How long have you been playing golf? I started playing in the back garden with my dad when I was 4. I completed my first round of golf when I was 9.

Since when do you know long drive? I have been following the long drive events for a couple of years but only got involved this year.

How was your first experience of the LDET circuit in Mijas last September?

I felt good throughout the tournament in Mijas but that was mostly down to all the other LDET guys being so friendly and making me feel very welcome. The experience I gained from the event was priceless, not just hitting on the tee but also speaking to the more experienced guys there like Andreas Persson and Dan Konyk. 

Besides, you got a spot to the world finals in Mijas… You just were one yard to reach top 8! Did you expect to go further?

Not at all! I didn't even expect to get in the top 24. I knew that I could get the ball in the grid and that if I hit it ok I might be able to get through a few rounds but I really didn't think I would do quite that well.

How many days a week do you train golf? I like to hit balls every day and now I have also started golf specific gym work outs to try and find a little extra speed.

What kind of training do you focus on? Striking the ball from the middle of the golf club is a must so I work on my golf swing most days. I try to do some speed work as well as concentrating on my core muscles in the gym so my body is more stable and I can make a more dynamic swing.

What type of equipment you use to train? And for competitions?

I have the MYSP Golf training aid that I use when I am on the range as well as a specially weighted club that is really heavy. During a competition the drivers I use all have Geek Golf heads lofted from 4.5 to 6 degrees with mostly xxx stiff shafts of varying weights.

What does golf mean to you golf as a sport?

Golf is a great game that can be played in different ways. I prefer social golf with friends or members at my club but on the flip side playing well in a tournament always feels good.

What do you think about LD? I love Long Drive! The relaxed fun environment mixed with the power and speed produced on the tee makes it one of the best things I have even done.

Will you join the LDET circuit as a professional player next season? I will definitely.

What quality do you highlight above all for a Long Drive player?The ability to hit the middle of a square club faces at high speed.

Now you have tried LD, what’s the difference between regular golf and LD? You don't have to putt. It's the best thing ever!

What sensations do you feel when you hit the ball? The best sensation is when you don't feel the ball come off the club. This is when you know you have hit a good one. If you feel the ball off the club face usually you have not hit it out the middle.

Do you know what the worst enemy of a LD is? The O.B lines. They always seem to be attracted to your longest drives.

Next tournament: 5th & 6th May
