(AP) Tim Burke won the Re/Max World Long Drive Championship on Wednesday night at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, hitting his fourth shot in the final round 427 yards.


England's Joe Miller was second.


The two advanced from the final field of eight who began the night, battling chilly weather conditions, and hitting the ball toward the bright lights of the famed-Las Vegas Strip in the distance.


Both Burke and Miller each got six drives, over two rounds of three shots apiece, with the longest shot that stayed within a 50-yard wide grid counting toward their final score. Burke, who was second to Ryan Winther in the 2012 event, earned $250,000.
