I completely agree with you. Today I took my dads clubs to the local range and played for the first time since last summer. I was watching the PGA tour and wanted to play again. I'm and ex high school baseball player and swinging a club comes sorta naturally to me. Today my average drives rolled 275-280 with my longest rolling to the fence(no i don't swing out of my shoes i swing like how i do on the course)...believe me i was surprised too...and my friend, who is much larger then me, couldn't manage to make it farther then 50 feet. Now that's not to mention that about 15-20 percent of the time ill shank one way to the right or send a piss rod 2 inches off the ground screaming up the range(remember i golf once a year take it easy). So I believe that you are right on the spot. I can smoke the ball most of the times but it doesn't resemble my uhh handicap...s**t I don't even know mine and I can tell you it's probably not great.
