I love that commercial - They can't put anything on the Internet that isn't true.
I played behind a kid Sunday that looked to be about 12 that was hitting it a legit 250 from the tee with a shortened Covert 3w. He was a scrawny kid at that. We played the front twice and were on our second trip around so I only saw what he did through 9 holes. We were on their tail the entire time and I'd guess he shot sub 45 on the front. He was able to get it close the green in two on 400+ yard par 4's, he played blue tees and his dad played from the tips.
Yeah really. I only mentioned it because everyone is usually quick to doubt distance claims. I don't think 250 is overly long in CO, even with a 3w, but this kid was a good golfer for his size and age. Trust me I only noticed because the course was a little slow Sunday, it's rare to be waiting on the first tee and I'm sure I rolled my eyes at some point. Like I said his dad played the tips. I don't see many back there considering it's 7500 yards. Though he should have been playing up with his kid. His drive landed behind the fairway bunkers on that hole. I spend a lot of time in those bunkers so I know exactly how far out it is.
Don't take it personally. This is the internet and people are skeptical of 300 yd claims. After all, Tiger only averages 293 yards.
If you can drive the ball 300 yards, more power to ya'.
Cool.If you lived in CA I would have to shun you as a potential competitor for the kids I know, but since you are in Indiana...
Seriously, my son and his friend are both only about 5'6", and can drive 260 and 270 respectively. It is not that difficult for me to believe that some other kid could out-drive them by 30 and 40 yards. I can imagine some kids in your state could be relatively tall and strongly built. To be honest, it is probably less believable that these kids could drive as far as they do than for you to drive 300 yards. The only proof I have is that my son goes on the So. Cal. outings and hit his 3W 240 yards on most holes that needed it, and his friend is already a fixture in many of the So. Cal. junior tournaments.
As far as "should I play golf?". Yes, you should. If your question is really "should I play golf for a living?", well no one on an internet forum will give you a straight answer.
