I constantly read threads around here, where people are claiming to hit their drivers around 240-250m or more, and consistently. And a significant number of them often have handicaps in the high teens, anywhere up to the high 20s, low 30s.
Does anyone actually do this? Or believe it? Or do those claiming it actually know how far it is?
I for one call bullshit.
The biggest hitter I've seen at an ISG day I reckon is good for about 250ish on a regular basis...and gets the odd one out there about 270. Most of the others that I would consider to be big hitters max out at about the 250 range...and consistently would be overstating it a touch.
Everyone else...probably 230 at most.
So...have your say...do you claim to smash the thing consistently HUGE...and if so, tell us why you're on the handicap that you're on, seeing you're getting tour-like distances.
