345-yard 3-wood tee shot on level ground in the fairway. That's a new record...

Sure there was a tailwind and the ground is pretty firm, but it was a bit surprising to have a 30-yard wedge on a 375-yard par 4.  Too bad I left too much hair on the putt after the chip and had to settle for a par.

I had a couple other 3 woods go 295-300 today too.  Normally I've amazed myself with that kind of distance.

What's your longest 3 wood (no high altitude, downhill shots or cart path bounces allowed)?

We were playing in Vegas at Desert Pines.  One of my employees hit a 3 wood that we estimated at just over 470 yards.  Of course, it was on Pecos Road and he might have got a bit of roll...

Hit my 3 wood an estimate 1250 yards off skyline drive with new proV1's a few years back.  Actually hit the entire dozen.  Was getting about 10-12 seconds of hang time.

Played there last year.  Ball carries well on that course.  470 is a poke, though.

I know you said tee-shot in the title, but please enlighten us whether you actually teed up the ball or just casually dropped one on the deck.

I usually hit 3 wood off the tee here. About a quarter inch.  Usually goes about 250-280.

The 470 was the benefit of some asphalt.

43.75".

And yes, you guess it: Taylormade. This one didn't even have "ballz" or "rocket" something or other in the name. And even more surprisingly, the loft wasn't jacked at all!

Seriously though, drove a par 5 with it that was slightly uphill and into a slight breeze (club and a half at most) circa 492 yards straightaway IIRC. Missed the tap in shawty for a deuce. And the comeback for an eagle... tried to brush it back in for a bird... 4 bites of the apple later, put me down for a snowman bruh.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, this was at 302 feet above sea level

EDIT2: I also forgot to mention that I was choking down and just trying to keep it in play. There was OB left, which is my WRX miss with driver (snap hook anyone??)

This happened to me many many years ago. But, I was playing at The Ranches in Eagle Mountain. It was the on the back 9 I believe it was the 13th downhill par 4. I shank the crap out of my 3 wood off a tee probably less then 10 yards. And it rolled down the cart path perfectly and end up behind the hole on the cart path still. So carry 10 yards, total driving distance was roughly 350 give or take a few rolls.

Ok, I will play along with a no BS answer.  Saturday must have been long 3-wood day.  I hit the two longest 3-woods I have ever hit.  Caveats: Elevation = ~5000 ft - sorry it is all I can play at the moment; fairways are pretty firm this time of year.  

First one went about 302 yards after hitting the downward side of a mound on a relatively flat hole otherwise.  It was down wind about 10 MPH.  Kind of a fluke with the combination of mound, firm fairway, and breeze.

Second one went 274 yards where there was a bit of a down slope out around 230, but very little wind.  I hit this one far better.  Not bad for an old fat lady!

Don't carry a 3-wood, I carry a 4. Longest I've hit it is 315 but was a bit of a one off. Hit it beautifully, caught a downslope at about 240 and rolled out down a nice hill.
