I golfed earlier today with an older gentlemen. http://www.bouldercitygolf.com/-rates-boulder-city He was older than me anyways. Probably in his mid/late 70s is my guess. His distance off the tee with 10.5 driver was only about 190 yards. His 3W was in the 170+/- yard range. He did have a very good short game, and his putting was just plain awesome. He only carried 8 clubs; a driver, 3W, 5I, 7I, 9I AW, SW, and of course his putter. He shot a cool 77. He had no birdies, but a lot of pars, with 5 bogies. He also had an electric trolley with a remote control. Got to get me one of those critters.
So here's my question. How far is far enough when hitting off the tee? Yes, I know the more distance off the tee the better, but what are some opinions about shooting a good score with minimum driver distance.
Myself I shot an 84, with some drives in the 230 range. I was quite humbled, but had a great time watching this guy play his game.
