How big is your drive?

224 posts in this topic

Hi.

My name is Dave, I am a pro golfer, shoot some sick scores and sink some sick puts. I come to you with a question:

How big are your drives?

I hit mine on average in excess of 320 Yards, I enjoy hitting long and accomplish this with a nice easy swing.

Do it big, score small. It's how I play and how I live life on the courses.

Thanks

If I'm taking a full swing,I have to make sure not to carry over the green on those pesky par 4's.

Very impressive figures. Downhill, wind with and with the mindset of killing the ball I may make it with you.

Dave buddy we gotta know what's the longest putt you've ever sunk?  a 80 foot putt over a bunker?  Putt out of the water?  Or do all of your approaches just naturally fall towards the hole.  In which case all your putts are tap-ins, because you make some sick iron shots too.

Broski doesn't miss any greens. His game is sick.

I generally dial it back a bit on any holes that run east-west or west-east as I don't want to mess with the earth's rotation.

Good thinking.

Also, I'm careful on courses near fault lines or active volcanoes. Things could get messy.

If my chest is facing the magnetic north(I am hitting a ball westward) I generally launch it off the golf course.  I have never found one of the balls so I don't really know how far they go.  I usually play a 1/32nd provisional gap after that.

edit: Oh and I could be a pro I just don't really feel like it all the time.

I just hit my putter from the tee box. Gotta dial it back if it's a short par 4.

You're getting really good at Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2014.  Do you play it on the 360 or PS3?

That is a good idea.  Keep it in play and just leave yourself a nice chip and a putt from there on in I spoze.

Slice of life makes up for those mediocre birdies on par 4's with his aces on 190yrd par 3's.  He just takes a 1/4 swing flop shot with a lob to get it 205 with a spinback into the hole.

with all the gps capabilities phones have these days, this really should be a legitimate topic had it not started off so poorly.

Yeah, can't eagle aaaaaallll of them. Just most.

My 1/4 flop is only 200 though, I've been working on my flexibility by taking hot yoga classes with my Victoria Secret model wife in hopes that I can get there eventually...

    • Mayb Spieth should spend more time over his ball, talked to his caddy more, slow things down a bit...........       (god help us no!)
    • I found  that I was making better contact  when I started my downswing with my arms.   BUT, on further review, and after watching a video of myself, I found the reason.   And the reason was, I  was ending my backswing by raising my arms.   I was becoming disconnected at the top of the back swing.   Thus, by starting my down swing with my arms, I was just getting re-connected and putting myself back into the position I should have been in at the top of my down swing.  Now, I am going to work on not raising my arms at the top of the back swing.   Then, I will be able to follow the advice in the post that started this thread.  Better yet, it's way past time for me to get some lessons from my local pro. 
    • To OP, your primary focus of all should be to learn to swing on plane first. Speed will come. It will come in boatloads. Consider the analogy of a car speeding in a NASCAR track. You can throttle the car when in the straight section of the track and get max speed but you have to slow down in the turn section, no matter how powerful the engine. Swinging 'on plane' with a proper sequence is like driving the car the straight section - you can maximize leverage and inertia for speed. Leveraging a club for speed until then is like trying to speed up at the turn - you will just go off track or will have to slow down to keep control. Of course swinging on plane is easier said then done. It is as closest to the 'holy grail' of golf you can get. Everybody, even experience players, are always chasing it. But swing even somewhat on plane will do wonders. Impact will dramatically improve too. You are new to the game. It is an exciting time with all kinds of new discoveries of what you can do with a golf club. THIS is the best time to get a camera and work with a good professional - do it NOW!!   
    • I played round 1 of 2 for the final local tournament of the year yesterday.  I struggled with my driver the entire day and managed to find only 1 of 14 fairways.  It was frustrating, to say the least.  

      On the plus side, I posted a 42 - 45 = 87 and I'm only 4 strokes back heading to the final round this morning.  

      I figure, if I can jump out to a quick start early... I have a chance.  I know I need to post something really low... like an 82 or something, to have a realistic opportunity to catch the leader... but I know I can do it on the course we're playing, so... I have my fingers crossed.  

      I'm about to head out in 45 minutes or so to get some practice time in prior to the round.  I'll update tomorrow.

    • @spider  Excellent review of the track!  It should give folks a pretty fair idea of the course and what it has to offer. In terms of playability, it holds up to any major championship courses. You are rewarded for accuracy, challenging at times, suited for golfers of all skill levels. Very affordable. Although we did not see any, at times there are lots of wild life on the course and some imported such as American Bison! There used to be several herds of sheep. The location is kind of out there, quiet, and off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. And "Oh Yeah", stellar 5W! (I carry one as well, Ben Hogan Speed Slot (Laminate) which I used frequently.  I am looking forward to the next event.@Shindig says he may try to put something together for the winter.
