However at the begging of the season I was easily a 18 - 20 handicap but I could still average long drives that easily exceed the 300 yard mark.
Now because this group title refers to 300 yard hitters having high handicaps as impossible or rare I would say its very possible as I did alot of work on my iron and short game to get my handicap to where it is.
Just to leave everyone thinking I played golf the otherday and on a PAR 4 400 yards more uphill if anyting no elevation on tee blocks and no wind to help ...........
I was able to HIT THE BALL 375 -380 yards!!!!!
I overshot the fairway ending so inbetween the fairway and green was a rough patch 40 feet long I was in the middle of the rough 20 yards from the green....
I wonder how far it would of gone if there was no rough in between the fairway and green ? lol
I was playing with 3 friends that day all of them told their fathers and they do not believe the story my dad however was not surprised as he has seen me hit my longest drive of 390 yards 2 years ago.
My friends and I were golfing one day and two guys followed behind us. We were on a 420 yard par, when I noticed a ball on the green that wasn't there a moment prior. At first we thought it was from someone on another fairway.
After a few holes we noticed brushing sounds from both sides of our fairway. I asked what it was, and my friend and I were dumbfounded. Kind of funny. Then I noticed off in the distance someone getting off our teebox. I told my friends that the guys following us must have been driving 100 yards past us. At first, it was like no way. We then realized that this was really the case. I looked back for the rest of the round, and noticed those guys were driving incredibly far.
I doubt they played their second shots or putting well, because it seemed like they fumbled around the greens a lot.
Plus they hit the trees along the fairway, even wide ones.
I bet they drove that 420 yard green, by accident, but they had over 330 yard drives all day. Just not where they wanted them.
