About the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship on ESPN:
Each year an excess of 10,000 competitors attempt to qualify for the RE/MAX Finals. These qualification events occur at approximately 300+ sites around the globe. You can compete for this $550,000 purse!
North America is divided into 12 regions. All competitors who enjoy success at the local level will advance to their assigned regional championship.
