When it comes to golf, driving is always the first step. While having a good short game and sinking putts can typically make or break your handicap, it's the long game that gets the ball where it needs to go first: toward the green. In other words, a golfer's short game and putting skills rely heavily on that first drive. So whether you're talking those with the longest drives, complete accuracy, or consistency, the best drivers in golf are easily some of the best golfers of all time.

In general, a good long game is always essential to success in golf, but when teeing up on a par 5 it becomes all the more important.

Considering this, some of the best drivers in golf history include the likes of Dustin Johnson, all-time great Jack Nicklaus, and Ben Hogan—just to name a few. Sure, these guys are great short game golfers too, but it's their driving skills that make them the best of the best. Who's your pick for the golfers with the best long game?
