Golf is a game of honesty and integrity. I am sorry but no one that has only played a couple of times can hit it 300 on a consistant basis. If you
actually do, you need to either see your local pro and work on the rest of your game, because you may have a future in golf or do before mentioned and
then find the nearest long drive competition. It is even hard to believe a guy who hasn't played very often can RIP one 300 yards, but it is
I have played since I was 6 years old and have been a student of the game since. I worked with a swing coach from the time I was 12 and seen some
great results. I was on a very good golf team in HS and later passed my "playing ability test". This is a test any prospective PGA of America
teaching professional has to pass in order to continue in the PGA of America program. It is not Q-school (which most people think I am talking about
when I tell them) and the standards are much lower than that. I had to shoot 154 for 36 holes in one day. The course was set up beautifully (pins in
the center of greens, only played about 6800 yards, the weather wasn't the best though, 50 degrees rainy and breezy) and I shot 145, 72-73.
With that said, I will tell you I average around 280 and if I really get on one I can get 300-310 out of it. Those numbers are not wind aided and I
have hit one over 350 with a 20-25 MPH wind at my back, and I hit it perfect with a draw.
The longest hitters on Tour average 320-330, and the average player on Tour doesn't even average 300. TeflonDon has the right idea for anyone who
wants to know. Have you all heard "drive for show putt for dough." It is a very old cliche but very true. If you can improve from 100 yards in you
will see your scores improve greatly. The game of golf has come quite a ways since the begining of the "Tiger Era" and has become more mainstream
than ever. It is great to see and hope you all continue to play, it's a great game that you can play for your entire life. (I know an 88 year old man
who every now and then can shoot his age!!!!! and he plays EVERYDAY)
