If you want to see how you stack up go to your local driving range and try and hit your ball out of the back of the range. If you cant then dont worry because your not in the league of big hitters.

For OCC driving range, if you can drive towards the fence at the end or beyond, you have driven 250m (carry) at least ... Swing

This is my issue when I encounter a longest drive hole. I can usually get past the flag but slightly off the fairway!

Your claimed average already in the top5 PGA driving distance stats and you say till very short. Very demoralising for us 'short' hitters.

wa MLP.. you have impressive driving distance.

almost equivalent to top 10 of pga..

quite an amazing feat. you may have a shot. go for it.

the only 280m shots i get are with alot of tail wind and roll....
