In one short year... - Page 3

post #37 of 46

i am the same as the OP, but in softball. 

 

i mash the ball and i mean i can pick any area of the field to hit my shots, or just jack it 350+ with out batting an eyelash. 

 

i did this within 3 months of picking up my first bat. 

 

i also pitch and have had 8 shut outs in slow pitch softball. 

 

i will post a video shortly from my softball board where i basically rule the paltry newbs from that board :) 

 

JK i suck at this game

I would guess that you could really crush the ball off a drive though. a2_wink.gif).

I hope the OP doesn't post a video of Jamie Sadlowski by accident. Bahaha.

You didn't respond to my challenge.  I defy you to pinpoint the topic that we are supposed to get back to.  I'm not suggesting everybody should bash the OP, rather I'm illustrating that the OP didn't really designate a topic or ask for any specific help.  He simply stated that his incredibly mashed drives occasionally suffer from a flat swing from his overly active hips as a result of his incredibly fast-twitch muscle fibers.  So, what was he looking for help with, again?  I'll bet you it wasn't for his flat driver swing.  If so, why is the name of the thread "in one short year?"  Probably because he was more concerned with letting us know about the first 7/8ths of his post than the last few sentences.

I think the OP has achieved what he set out to do. Three pages of discussion already, and he is long gone, probably laughing his ass off. The thread should be locked.

Anything less than 200 yards, of course a1_smile.gif).

Check out a video I put in a previous post.


It shows a fellow named "Gorilla James", who is a really long hitter. I think he also hits about what the OP stated he hits (or more).

 

I was watching a few more videos of him and a few other golfers playing a round together. It appears that that kind of distance lands you in the woods much more often than the reasonable 200 to 275 yard drive.

Most average length public courses aren't designed for guys driving it well over 300 yards on every hole, even from the back tees.  I don't drive it nearly that far, but I find myself pulling driver only 10-12 times a round.  Sometimes as few as 6-8 times per round, if the course plays shorter for any number of reasons.
