As a well-built, fairly strong male of 35 years old who's been playing for a number of years I can honestly say that the longest ever TrackMan-verified drive I've hit was while messing around waiting for an iron fitting. The pro had gone off to find the adjustment key for the iron clubhead removal and the driver was just sitting there from the last fitting (Nike Covert Tour) so I swung it once, stepped up to the ball and absolutely nailed it out of the middle of the club face.

The pro had just walked in at that point and whistled at the shot with a "nice!" comment as the ball flew in a beautiful mid-trajectory draw to the middle of the field.

The ball carried 265y and it's still by far the best I've ever hit a driver.

And on the internet it's at least 350.

Where I play 265 carry turns into about 275 if it's dry and plugged at 265 if it's not.

265 On a monitor translates to about 315 on the course

hah. Don't believe it for an instant here in the UK. More like 265 on the monitor = 250 on course. ;)

What I don't get is why always 300? Nobody ever says I crush my driver 288 how good is that.

hmmmm, idk man, lol, i guess it's because i hit it more than 300 usually, :hmm:

True, you did say 300 plus .

Just out of curiosity, how do you measure the distances? By playing the course and using google maps to pinpoint specific landmarks? Or by some other means?

You do realize that he is probably 35 years old, currently sitting on his mom's old couch in her basement, and doesn't even play golf.

Everybody knows that a 13 year old is NOT hitting "more than 300 usually" unless he's playing in the street.

Sure. You're a nice guy, but I'm not. lol

Talk out your ass on the interwebs, and I'll call you on it...13 or 30, I don't care. Football isn't on for 5 more minutes, and I'm bored.

Further evidence that this genius isn't on a path to Harvard...just received this PM from him...

" So you think just any idiot can get into high school then, hmm, i bet you got into Harvard with your eyes blindfolded and your hands in your ass then, huh, answer me that riddle?"

" So you think just any idiot can get into high school"

" any idiot can get into high school"

" get into high school"

WHAT?
