Joe Miller’s winning driver, pictured above, was a Callaway XR16 LD, 3° loft, Fujikura Joe Miller Prototype 3x Shaft, 50” shaft length.
The key difference between the standard XR16 head and Miller’s stick is loft. “We do reinforce the area where the face meets the crown as the typical miss in Long Drive is generally high on the face, but aside from that, it’s essentially the same makeup,” says a Callaway spokesman. The 31-year old Miller typically swings the club 145 to 150 mph and generates crazy-fast ball speeds of 212 to 220 mph.
Miller hit his winning drive 423 yards to bring home the newly remodeled championship belt and a check for $125,000. He won his first World Long Drive title in 2010.
