Longest Personal Drive?

Recommended Posts

Just curious what's your personal best. Mine was 330 metres (360.89 yards) total, downhill, no wind, hard fairways during autumn.

Right around 230 yards (about 220 in the air). That was really good for me, although a lot of credit goes to the conditions at the time. Normally I'm in the 200 - 210 range when I'm hitting it well.

330 yards. I had 25 yards to the pin on a hole that measures 380 yards. It's a very slight dogleg (10 degrees or so) and the pin was just up from center (say, five yards tops), so that's my best guess.

In the air? not sure but after the roll I have ended 330 yards on a down hill par 4. I was just left of the green on the fringe. Best feeling you can have. My partner though Hit his drive past the hole! I Usually hit my drives no farther that 260.

Mine was 380, down hill, down wind. I actually did not hit it that well and hit it a little high, but that actually helped due to the wind. I was 160 out on a Par 5 after that one.

My longest without any assistance from wind or hills was 270.

No, not in the air. Probably about 300 in the air, honestly. It's a flat hole, too - I've hit longer drives on downhill holes, but I don't consider counting those fair.

No wind the day I hit that drive, either.

The farthest drive I've ever measured out, and by that I mean subtracted distance from the green from total hole length, was like 265 I think. That sucks.

Why does that suck? That's quite a respectable number, particularly for an amature (as a matter of fact, that's 5 yards longer than the PGA Tour average drive in 1993 - and those guys managed to score pretty well with that, I understand). You should be very proud!

Im sure i have hit at least 1 300 yarder but i have never measured that, Although I have not hit the 300 yard mark yet i have came close. This year ive hit two 296 yard drives, no wind. And also i have hit a 295 yard drive on a dogleg right over the trees.

2x 280 yard drives. Same hole, 6 or so months apart. Short par-5 (480 yards from the white tees) at my home course. First time, I botched a 3-Iron with the intent of chipping onto the green. Second time, I nailed a 3H to within chipping distance for GIR, hit a bad chip (but at least on!) and missed the birdie putt. At my handicap, though, I can't complain.

Avg drive 200-210.

    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
    • Maybe you should be honest with him.   Give him all the reasons you cited in your post.  Tell him you won't play with him unless he gets some decent clubs and takes a few lessons.   Also, for the sake of all of us, tell him he gets a maximum of 8 swings per hole, or maybe a maximum of double-par, and then he has to pick up and go to the next hole, because he's holding up everyone else on the course.
