There's no golfer who doesn't want to gain distance and they'll definitely proud of how long they can drive.

Let's poll and don't be shy. Show off what you can do, but remember it's carry distance we are talking here. Laughing

Mine?! I guess just an average joe Beer Hitting around 200 at best.

Carry is key. Roll can add quite a lot, depending on the fairway and landing angle.

My ass!

if you carry 220m, my carry is about 300m, on some days even 340m. sometimes my 7iron hits 230metres and i just use 7iron to tee off instead.

woah guys, don't be too modest. discounting 20-30% real distance as if it's GSS. ROFL

sometime encounter roll-back when the ball landed of uphill fairway. worst still when facing wind on tee. anyway, it seems we have tour-pro around!! White Flag

Oh yea!!! That one also. Carry 10m before Red tee and runs till 210m total.

For a while, I thought a rabbit impersonating a chipmunk, can run so far!

So see! Roll distance he wins.....carry distance he also wins!

No horse run!

Carry about 220m but my problem is the darn ball doesn't roll.

Overall, driving has been more consistent since switching to a 10.5* G15 SR TFC149 stock shaft. But distance was further on my previous Cleveland XLS 9.5* with Accra stiff shaft - but very inconsistent.

Now thinking of getting the G20. Any comments or reviews of the G20?
