don't you guys think that you can be a + handicap all day long and only drive the ball 240y off the tee? but that will not win you any majors. IMO the biggest thing that sets the pros apart from the rest is their ability to hit the ball a very long way, way more than the average player regardless of handicap. sure they are good in every other aspect as well, but if they were driving the ball <250y off of every tee, they could never pull off the scores that they do. i mean hell they are playing courses ~7,500y and further. i drive the ball about 270y and i really struggle on courses that are even 1 yard over 7,000. i just don't think you could realistically do it if you aren't driving at least 285y with very strong irons to back it up.
and hitting a 4h further than a 3h and both further than a 3w will never be something we'll see on the PGA tour. sure he has more time to sort that out, but being a 6 and doing that already is pretty impressive even if that's as far as he ever goes. his short game must be fantastic (as previously mentioned).
