My Bio

How You Doing, my name is John Barragan just turned 53 years old. I have been working in the Railroad Industry for about 25 years.

Since, moving to Florida 8 years ago I, have been going to hit golf balls at the driving range with my daughter and it is so much fun to hit BOMBS over the fence with my 3 IRON and see her face of WOW!!. Couple of people at the range also have told me that I should use a Driver and compete in Long Drive. This replaced my old past Sunday morning softball games. I Spoke to my wife and kid about Golf Long Drive and they were all supportive.

Next, was to actually follow through with joining and competing. Not having any golf equipment or knowledge, I started researching how to get into the long drive competitions.  Several months into research internet searches came up with the ULD.

My wife and Daughter said “You can do it we believe in you and love you”. So, I signed up on the internet website  for a TOUR CARD. Entered my first league event in November 2021 in Orlando, Florida with a 42 inch long 12.5-degree driver. The staff at ULD is very and kind helpful people, they are there if you need something from a Driver to a tee shirt.

All the Long Drive Players was so nice giving advice and guidance on what equipment is needed and helpful tips.

My wife and Daughter surprised me at Christmas with me an expensive 400-dollar Long Drive Driver Club, showing their support as well as their loving support for me.

Thank You ULD you have allowed me an opportunity join a league and to compete as an amateur for national and world championship. It is so nice to be part of a league again like many years ago.

My Training

Every week try and hit over 500 golf balls at driving ranges to practice. Since starting in the ULD I have been trying to exercise and eat right. That will help my body compete. Focusing exercising to squats that will allow me to be able use the ground forces while swinging. Arm and Hip exercises that will help with the control and the follow through speed.

My Goal

Is to continue training hard to be able to hit golf balls consistently over 400 yards.

Keeping focus on winning a National and World Long Drive Competition.

Becoming the oldest and longest long drive record holder
