I usually hit the back of the JCC range's fence, teeing off from ground floor. Good shot hit the middle of the fence. Not so good shot hit either the bottom or slightly before and bounce to hit the fence.

So that is 200m? plus abit (since fence is behind the 200m mark). I use the superfast 2.0 which is slightly longer than average club.

If I purposely keep my wrists hinged abit longer at the top of swing before releasing at at low point prior to impact, I can get the ball further (but it tends to have chance of slicing cuz my rhythm changes) Usually on the course I will use more of my hips to swing thru the ball to keep it straight and more consistent. (unless betting long drive with brother Smile . With my current body structure, I feel I can't really swing much faster now without purposely lagging my wrists.

I've managed to "two-on" the Hole 10 (maybe Hole 1.. maybe mixed up) par 5 on RCC lake course with a driver shot and fairway wood. Then 3 putt for Par. The green is very fast in RCC (vs my other club in Malaysia). 3 Putt damn often -.-

That's because all your shots backspin about 50-80m.

SBH is around. He's like a silent assassin. He lurks in the background.... Wink

He also claims to drive short distances... but that's only when he tees off with his PW.

One thing I like about GR is they are good in making your head swell.
Even though you all are lying, it make me feel good. Laughing Laughing Laughing

If someone hits 200m at range with range ball, will he hit longer or same on the course? If longer, how much longer?

Sorry for the noob question, never been to course before. Thanks.
