Given the knowledge from this forum, the timing and technique should be achievable with some practice. Maybe it is not as cut and dry as I am making it. This why I asked the question. I have been teaching myself, learning from watching pro golfers and collecting information from this website and other sources. Although I have never been a short hitter, I still have added more yardage with better quality and accuracy as I improve my mechanics and practice. I was just curious what others limitations were since they would hopefully be fairly introspective of their swing because of the forum.
I get comments from golfers I play with about how they wish they hit my distance, but they are usually older. However I play with a guy that is late 40's that is a 5 cap that cannot hit very far at all, works on his game quite a bit but is hitting fairway woods for his second shot on par 4's. He has plenty of ability to hit longer shots. He just doesn't generate swing speed.
I guess I should have said around 220.
