Actually, Player said "The more I practice, the luckier I get." And Hogan said “Every day I don’t practice is one more day it will take to get better”. But yeah, practice like you play - sound advice.
my clubfitter's indoor thingamajig said my highest of the 5 i hit was 165. the rest were 158-ish. i have no idea how accurate his device is. it gives ball speed, launch angle and carry/total distances, but i suspect the distances aren't all that accurate.
damn, that's crushing it. mine's 108-112.
