It's about to get real messy

 

Seriously, do people still carry drivers? Weak.

 

Shock and awe. It's got it's purpose.

I had to stop. Most courses around here only have holes up to about 585 yards, so I just started teeing off with my 6 iron on those and hoping I wouldn't overshoot the green.

I got tired of not being able to hit anything over 6 iron, so I switched whiffle balls made out of aircraft grade alloy.

I tried that, but the windspeed through the holes was fast and so loud that deafened everyone within a 12 mile radius.

Had mine specially engineered by Boeing with anti-loudness quantum dampeners. They charge me about $175 a dozen, but worth it. I know a guy, I can hook you up.

Why a dozen? With that alloy, they should last forever. I've never lost a ball...how much for just 1?

Eh, they end up getting scorch marks and scuffs after a while, so I went ahead and got a dozen. I'm sure they would sell them individually though.

I don't :)

I am considered a long hitter, but it's nothing compared to what people are posting here ;) (I hit my 4wood about 240 meters)

that's during the entire 18 hole round - it's like 20 minutes total

My drive is approaching Big Bang velocity. That's a lot of pressure

I think their focus is on accuracy.

I'm still not allowed to play golf in San Diego after the whole "Heaven's Gate" thing back in the late 90's, I tee'd off with a prototype Hale Bopp Golf ball in 1995 and we're still waiting on the official distance

post #211 of 224

I haven't been able to get out much this summer and so my game is a little rusty.  I suspect my clubhead speed is down about 20mph from where it should be which puts it at somewhere around...say...145mph?   How far should I be able to hit with this clubhead speed?  I may have to go with a higher lofted club to compensate.  Is there such thing as a 66 deg wedge?

Sounds like a joke. I hit my ball so far out of bounds it ended up in a different country.

So, it's in the correct thread, then?

I'm not long at all. 250-260 probably at most.

 

I need to maybe work on this as it can be a real struggle on long Par 5s - often with me hitting my 3rd shot 100 yards away from the green.

Honorable mention to the guy who can out drive most people with a shot from between his legs ;)
