Btw I saw people like Nickalaus, Watson especially the 70s, the olden day pros hit a lot more fairways back then..i read bradley hughes post about this topic, 70% was like average then. Now 70% fairways hit is like the winner of Fedex cup

obviously the modern pros hit a lot longer but that is debatable becoz of advancement in equipment and ball technology.

The one thing I failed to understand is that how come the latest technology can help the golfer in gaining distance but not accuracy? How come the current pros are missing more fairways as compared to the those from the earlier eras?

A lot of the courses have been "tiger-proofed" ... every yr before the masters golf digest shows the changes made to Augusta over the yrs ... Take a look, its quite interesting ...

And the obvious: the further you hit the bigger a mishit will be, e.g. A 5 deg push over 330yds vs a 5 deg push over 275 .... And also, higher swingspeeds put exponentially more spin on the ball

Technology has helped a lot with accuracy ... Try Blades vs super game improvement irons! The sweetspot of todays drivers are insanely large!!!

my apologies to bro tourswing, never mentioned his name ... he's the longest hitter i have ever played with, sans the pros, i would say he's probably 20m longer than sham

i am ready for our rematch with tigawood aka seebayho and tourswing but my partner guy013 seems to be in a bit of slump lately, i will assess his readiness when i play with him over the next 2 weeks, heehee

Bro, if he play like last Sat, then he definitely can GIR loh.
If I recall correctly, he played 89 (inclusive of a 10 on the short par 4)......dun ask me why he got 10, he just shouted to me 10 and I recorded the score

bro skybobo, like I mentioned, you have not met the real long drivers like coastguy, chippy and sham, and of course pushslice and technospaz (swee boh, bro duval)

my key is to prevent overswing which actually robs power, and of course training my hip power at night helps too

lifting my left foot off the ground is something I'm trying to stop, though it makes me feel like I'm bubba watson

my swing is still a major work in progress, now I need to stop those big slices ...

I didn't know you're standing behind me, did anything happen when I bend down to pick up the tee?

Bro, dun be so modest lah. Drive long is one thing but drive long and straight is another.
Urs is certainly very straight.
I have yet to see someone drive until the longkang on Kranji hole 10.
I look fwd to another game with you.
I think a fairer stoke adv for me will be 5-5, can boh?
Am sure Poresia will want to join in as well
