Even though Long Drives are not the name of the game, A lot of people seem to be interested in the new fad of bombing the ball. I am one of these people. Distance sells, and its a good runner up prize if you can't shoot in the 70s.
You will see a lot of people making the 300+ claims with no proof. But we are all golfers here, we have all played with a Ton of golfers and we all know that 95% of the claims are false.
I wanted to start this thread to those who love the long drive, or those who think they can drive 300+. Show us what you got.
Ill start this bad boy off with some stats of my own.
I'm a amateur Long Driver. Im 24 years old 6'3 225lbs and my current Handicap is 14.8 as of yesterday. Even though I have a high handicap, I take pride in smashing golf balls. My longest ball in a Comp was 358 yds. There is no telling my longest ever, but I would not doubt I've put a few over 360-370 on the range from the thousands i've hit. I've drove multiple par 4s and hit some monster bombs from elevate tee boxes and downhill landing areas.
I can stripe one 330-340 with my regular driver ( a TM burner 2.0 10.5*) on the range pretty consistently.
I can also hit my stock TM burner 18* rescue club into the 300s (which seems to get more attention than my driver is why I mention it)
Below is 2 videos I made for a different thread, but ill post them here for people to look at.
When I made the videos I was rushed for time (you will see my wife in the white shorts telling me to come on in the hybrid video) So I just got up and hit a few balls after 36 holes of golf. So i was already a little tired.
It was not my best attempts, but it is unedited and all I have right now.
The first one is my regular driver, with my regular driver swing. The second one is my hybrid. I'm waiting on my LD driver to be fixed right now and ill post my LD Driver Video with my LD Driver swing.
What do you think? Can you do better? Lets see what the beasts on this site have in them.
