he ranked 161 out of 180, right in between bombers Jeff Maggert and David Toms.

Now the scary thing will be to see exactly how "short" that is by our standards.....

I've noticed he tends to have to take one club longer than everyone else he's paired up with on tour....I'm curious how his club selection will compare to yours  :-D

Alright, I'm not very long......here's my "non-internet" real live "stock" yardages. I'll get a good feel for the GMAC's numbers on Wed.......

Driver: 235 carry
3W: 215 carry
3h: 205
4h: 190
5i: 180
6i: 168
7i: 158
8i: 148
9i: 133
PW: 122
GW: 110

I really don't hit a SW or LW full...unless it's a really unusual situation.

Hey, these are Internet yardages! They just might be more believable than other ones a2_wink.gif

Nice...very similar to mine...when I hit the ball flush that is.

That's awesome David. Did Golfnow send you a pass or something to show when you get to the course? I'm just wondering where you keep it, you know, just in case you can't make it for some reason, like you accidentally got locked in your car trunk or something. a3_biggrin.gif

I am a little late on this but man, you are going to have an awesome day! What a great way for GolfNow to reward you and get people talking. Can't wait to hear about your experience on here.

I'm an absolute mess.  I'm not gonna be able to swing a club.......!

 

Awesome. He seems to be a really great guy ( how could he go wrong, being Irish! :-D)

 

I've seen the ads promoting that, never really paid attention to what you had to do.

Ring ring...

Would you be available to play in a foursome with GMac?

No, I gotta catch up on Dancing with the Stars.

 

Are you kidding me?

 

Time to start following him on Twitter.

 

https://twitter.com/Graeme_McDowell

 

Definitely have to follow GMac now. BTW, reading that twitter feed, dude likes to gamble a little bit.

The offer still stands for the MySwing thread. We'll be more than happy to get you in shape in the remaining 48 hours before your appearance with Graeme! ;-)

post #107 of 392

Just saw this thread and OMG David, that's just awesome. You'll have a blast. Make sure you skip the first 9 to bring someone clothes and then only play the back nine with GMAC. He'll be impressed :)

I'll keep an eye on this thread, golfing in the Netherlands is pretty sucky currently...

Enjoy!
