Kyle Berkshire – Biography of the Professional Golf Player
American golfer Kyle Berkshire, who competes as a professional long drive athlete, was born on November 1, 1996. In 2019 and 2021, he won the World Long Drive Championship twice.
The things Kyle Berkshire does to the golf ball are quite astonishing. The two-time World Long Drive champion recently eclipsed 233 mph ball speed and often reaches clubhead speeds of 150 mph.
Berkshire now resides in Orlando, Florida, but she is originally from Crofton, Maryland. He went to Archbishop Spalding High School in Maryland, where he assisted the golf team in winning two MIAA match play and two stroke play state titles. During Berkshire’s four years, the team had a match play record of 31-2-1, including unbeaten campaigns in 2014 and 2015. Before going to the University of Central Florida, he spent two years at the University of North Texas.
Long drive career
When Berkshire won the WinStar Midwest Slam in Oklahoma in 2018, he had already advanced to the semifinals of the Volvik World Long Drive Championship in 2017. Berkshire defeated Tim Burke in the championship match to win the 44th World Long Drive Championship on September 4, 2019 in Thackerville, Oklahoma. Berkshire won the first-ever PLDA National Championship in 2020 at 383 yards after an organisational shift (Comcast, the World Long Drive Association’s owners, shut down World Long Drive Association). With three straight season-ending long drive tour victories under his belt, he successfully defended the PLDA Championship (now the PLDA World Championship) in 2021.
With a speed of 233.4 mph (375.6 km/h), Berkshire broke the previous record for indoor ball speed in December 2021.
