I really wouldn't worry about distance, i've always been a big athletic hockey player so for me distance came first and I'm trying to work out control. I think that if I had control first and figured out distance I'd be in a much better spot. Dont worry about what other players are doing, last night I tied my friend who 2 ironed off of every tee because he doesn't like his driver. Distance is overrated except for on the odd 550+ par 5s.

How bout those capitals? Ovis winning the cup this year. but seriously I agree with this point. I have been trying to beat my older brother since the day I started playing golf. hes got 16 years experience on me but I go out there all young and strong and try crushing all my drives and he just pokes it out there maybe 250. He beats me almost everytime. There is alot to be said for being accurate. I keep saying Id give up 50 yards for playing from the fairway any day. It is just so much easier not having to worry about trees or rough. I would say if you want to gain distance I'd go to the gym and make that same accurate swing take you a little further without you having to swing harder.

God, I really hope the capitals dont win. Not because I dont like OVI, I do. I cannot stand Dale Hunter, disgrace. That and the style of game they play is awful it made that 1st round the most boring 7 game series I have almost ever seen,

No forcheck, no pressure in the neutral zone just simply corwding 4 players infront of holtby and praying to win games 1-0. Yeah great hockey.


Go FLYERS the only team lef tthat still at least tries to play offense.

When you're late 50's and health issues and injuries start getting in the way, tell me that age has nothing to do with it.

And that is why I asked the OP about his age.

Crap - yeah, i's easy between 20 and 50 to gain yardage in these times. Sometimes, after 50, you can gain yardage if you're injury free, play often, have an efficient swing, and exercise frequently. But generally, that doesn't happen in the general population.
