I've been wanting to do that for awhile actually. And just so you know my swing speed was clocked right at 100 MPH with the driver, and 95 MPH with the new 5-wood I bought today (see sig)
there's a thing called smash factor (if you havn't seen us talking about it earlier)
A 100mph with a PERFECT smash factor of 1.50 (the pro's are around 1.48) will give a ballspeed of 150mph.
Now lets take a pro, SS of 115 smash factor of 1.48 will give a ballspeed of 170mph.
Pro's have everything tailored to their game so everything is optimized as well.
So a average PGA pro with that ballspeed and a good launch angle averages 282 yards.
you average 280 yards with a stock r flex shaft with any old type of launch angle?
your average would be 225.6..............
