ever so often on the forum, i see a guy getting dogged on because he has claimed to be a 300 yard hitter. did you ever stop and think, perhaps the guy does drive the ball this far? as a somewhat long hitter, i expect to carry the ball at least 275 every hole on which i use the driver, given no significant headwind. mind you, this is with a controlled swing with a ss of around 110. with fairly decent mechanics, good weight transfer, and good tempo, i don't see how it's that unbelievable a guy can put it out there 300 yards. i understand size, weight, and athleticism have a lot to do with my being able to hit this far. but my scramble partner who is about 6 in. shorter and 50 lbs. lighter than me outdrives me most of the time. so really, what's the big deal?
