Don't know how many posts you have now man but I see none of them which is targeted towards anything other than making me look stupid and having you save face. 

 

Furthermore - absolutely everything you have said suggests that the only thing that would happen if someone stuck a driver like mine in your hand is to get a good workout for once. If you don't swing harder than Bubba (which I seriously doubt considering how completely unbelievable you thought it was that I did) you have nothing to gain from a 5 degree driver unless you're hunting for mice. As much as I'd like to break out the math for you I'll save that for another time. Although to summarize - If you're happy with your drives using a 9.5 degree, 44.5'' driver and a Pro V1 you'd get about the same hang time as a pebble falling from a shoe if you used a 5 degree, 48'' XXX Stiff one. 

 

I'm only speaking English as a second language so I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but perhaps you need to look into how to use quotation marks. Quoting and doing a very bad job at in a condescending manner paraphrasing someone are two different things. How you got to be listed as "forum leader" (FYI - there's a proper use of a quote) of anything but is beyond my understanding.

 

Thanks a lot for the advice Lihu, I'll be sure to try that one out! Regarding newtogolf, my normal swing is around 125-130mph (with any driver that I've tried) and I can push it just over 130 if speed is what I'm going for, those shots have about a 1/10 chance at best to be in play though haha. I can live without seeing where the ball lands, the main issue is that I don't want to risk hitting someone. I went to TPC Harding Park last weekend after being told that their range is 300 yards with trees behind it by someone in their golf shop over the phone. When I went there the actual range was 220 at best. There was a net and some trees but then there was the 18th fairway. I tried a drive and it was way over the net and over the 18th fairway behind the driving range. Someone who's a bit more selfish than myself might just think that **** it... I'll hit anyway but I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that. That's the whole reason I went on this forum in the first place but it's sort of turning into something else for some reason. 

 

I think @Spyder's mistake, like mine, is that he thought you were a golfer, when it's now clear that you're not.

 

Go hit golf balls all over the place and have fun. 

 

Best wishes....

Awesome, random insults from another "forum leader" when I'm just genially looking for advice. What kind of place is this honestly. Consider this thread closed from my part.

 

If people I risk hitting are like you guys I regret even asking in first place.

Here's how a forum looks when people are giving advice and feedback as opposed to insults. 

 

Peace.

It's pretty clear that we all have different abilities.

 

It seems like we are all playing golf, just on our own terms.

I'm genuinely glad that you've found that other forum.

 

You'll likely find a lot of others like yourself there.  People who play golf once every 4 years but "guess" they have a single-digit handicap because they "hit it 380 on the simulator". 

 

Cheers.  ;-)

Alot of the same responses were pretty much on par with what people here were saying. And really someone suggested a range in San Jose which is easily 2 1/2 hours away?? To each his own I guess. Have fun and best wishes.

It is one heck of a driving range. 400+ yards of safe landing areas.

Sure, let's meet there maybe next week during the lunch hour.  I work on Montgomery St so can walk down there and hit balls at noon or after work on a Wednesday.  I'm looking to build a little league to play some virtual golf in the evenings, mainly for when it starts getting darker earlier in October through about March.  I'll take some video of your swing and we'll get a bunch of teaching pros to comment on it in a group I run for instructors on Facebook.

How could I forget? This is my home course and range.  It's not massive like Coyote Creek but should be able to handle your length and we have a brand new short game course where you can prove that your more than just a bomber!

What is the point of posting comments like these? So what if he hasn't played that much and is estimating his HC? He said he is getting into golf more and wants to play more, that is why he is looking for a place to practice that suits his distance.
