You mean how far do I hit it ? Usually 275-280 and sometimes muscle them out to 300 if I roast one or if it’s dry/wind-aided. I’m 52 now and still 10-15 yds longer than most guys around my age but unfortunately I’m 10-40 yards short of the 20-30 year old crowd at my club.
Haha Bif I’m talking bout the tournament on DraftKings If they don’t drive the ball atleast how far?
Couple of interesting quotes in this snip from an article:
The weather might not be that outlandish this week, but the talk around TPC Harding Park so far is all about how it will impact the flight of their golf balls.
For players so exact with their measurements, hitting shots in the marine layer will often resemble a guessing game.
“There’s not a science,” admitted Justin Thomas, the tournament favorite this week. “It’s not like you’re in Mexico where, hey, I’m playing 12 percent here. It’s like, hey, it’s pretty cold here and we’re into a little bit of a mist, like this is probably something like a 15-, 20-yard difference.”
For players who know not only the exact club that flies, say, 192 yards – and not 190 or 194 – it’s this inexact science which could prove to be the most difficult part of this tournament.
“I was anywhere from 10 to 13 yards shorter with a very similar swing and ball speed with the irons, and the driver is up to 20 yards shorter in carry,” Jordan Spieth said. “It’s just an adjustment. I think for me it normally takes a day or two of really being out on the course hitting a shot, being like, wow, hitting another one from the fairway after you didn’t believe it and it still comes up short, and then you start to kind of recalibrate.”
Winner : The Bison. Only major of the year, he needs this for justification of what he’s doing. He’ll be focused.
Fade: Reed :His long iron play (>175 yds) is horrendous. When his short game magic tricks stop, he’s in trouble.
Finau : Had a quick uptick after firing the caddie and has been slowly but surely falling back into bad habits.
Sleeper : Chez : Easy to sleep on this guy but he has been really good for a month and prior to the corona cold, had Top 25’s in the 2 Cali tournaments in February. Solid tee to green guy who needs to make putts. I’ll try that for the price point.
