Follow CrossFit athlete Steve Kois as he competes in the 2015 World Long Drive Championship, in which heavy hitters ditch the putters and irons to send balls over 400 yards downfield with the driver.

Kois, who trains at Ionic CrossFit in Bonita Springs, Florida, discovered CrossFit in 2013 when he watched his dad’s recording of the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games.

“After I saw how CrossFit combines so many different disciplines to the goal of raising one’s fitness as high as possible, I kind of loved it right away,” he explains.

Kois is a personal trainer at a Florida golf course and says he uses CrossFit methodology with his clients.

“There is definitely sort of a beginning of … awareness that an increased fitness—functional fitness—will help your golf game,” he says. “A lot of people in the past have done like standing cable rotations to get better at golf, and that doesn’t carry over at all. I can guarantee you at the Long Drive Championship nobody does standing cable rotations. That’s not a beneficial exercise.”

The CrossFit spirit also inspires Kois to achieve his goal of winning the Long Drive Championship.

“The CrossFit community, more than any other I’ve experienced, has that central objective of drawing together to be the best that you can be,” he says.
