Re: 20 handicappers hitting 300 yards (mild rant)This thread's still going on? Seriously?
I can count on one hand the number of people I know - of any handicap - who can average even 290 yards with the driver. One hand. And by "know" I mean "have played at least four rounds of golf with them."
I have never seen a bogey golfer hit a ball 300 yards in normal conditions let alone to average anything even close to 300. I don't think I've ever seen one hit a 300-yard drive downhill, downwind, with firm fairways either, but I'm giving myself that out.
There are undoubtedly a few bogey golfers who can hit the occasional ball 300 yards. There are probably a few who even average 300 yards (especially if you want to count the Long Drive guys).
But the percentages of both are incredibly small.
