How Many Clubs Top College Player Can Hit Past an Amateur?

Am hits driver 255, Norman Xiong can hit driver, 3W, 3 iron, 4 iron past his driver. What about the 5? The 6? This is depressing. I'm out.

I wonder even if the Am driver was the first one hit or the best of a grouping. I used to play fairly regularly with a few Web Tour pros and they would routinely hit their 6 iron past me. My best drive would get even with their 5 iron. Best though, not even average.

I wouldn't be surprised to find that a top college player could hit their putter farther than I can hit all my clubs, including my driver......

Of course there's still that old age, and treachery, will over come youth, and skill thing. I might have that still going for me. 😁

Only thing I didn't like was only using the Trackman to calculate total distance. Should have went and found the balls individually imo. We only got a couple views of him being in the fairway. If I wasn't really worried about playing my next shot I could put up big numbers on track man also. I'm sure he could smoke me score wise on the golf course but this amateur golfer might embarrass some players on distance. I wonder what elevation they were at?

That wouldnt matter for the Trackman numbers since they were normalized right?

I'm pretty sure they were in Carlsbad, close to the Callaway performance center where they do their fittings and such.

Cool! But not really surprised, I see players like NX a lot of the time at my home courses. 🤪

Roughly sea level in Carlsbad.

That was fun. They said Del Mar, which is on the water and is just north of La Jolla. A couple of miles, or in this case, a 6-iron, from Torrey Pines.
