Hmmm.....done with my round of VVIP golf (workplace context) at Laguna & actually realize smtg about my drive....and reinforced by the Datuks in my flight.

It is actually ok to just drive 180-200 m, so long as you reach the greens in two/three and can make pars and bogeys.
Did that for first few holes and was very happy with outcome.
Then finger itchy or some says backside. Went and whack one hard one and ball
super fades into water.

VVIP.1 came over and says, ' Brandon, dun think about whacking hard, just keep ball in fairway and arrive safely on greens."
Eyes tearing, I nodded my head and went back to safe play.
And results came back to satisfactory.

So moral of the story is, keep it straight and no worry about distance, at least for me.
Very Happy

p.s. Somehow, I know the thirst for distance will creep back again.
Hopefully can hv a golfing day like this today to remind me.

No, Asahi. For your build, you shall be hitting at least 200m in carry. Some improvement is needed.

Agreed on this point if you are aiming at 80s and above. If you want to achieve sub 80 then you need a longer drive or a very sharp and flawless short game.

My dear shifu, I know this. That's why my disclaimer that I still crave more distance.

Duff...my BB partner will provide reply soon.

Wealth Boys...due to our limited resources, BB only appears on stage once a month, therefore DSS probably gets April. WB gets May.

We are ignoring CC intentionally, bcoz we are still scared shitless to play Chipmunk and Champ Laughing
