actually i think hole 17 got downhill slope at about the 200m mark, so mayb the ball do roll quite a bit...... bunker right about 210-220m

I think there are many people that over-estimates their distance and sometimes it's just down to knowledge/ technology (lack of).

average has to include the bad shots as well as the good.
if the calculation does not include bad shots then similarly the freaky good shots must also not be taken into the calculation.
important is a good sample size or consistent method.

using the distance marker, sprinkler head and tee box also does not provide accurate assessment.

get a gps, range finder or maybe a trackman and see what is your (not directed at anyone) real average drive...not longest.

like what i have said before, i think most people are guilty of over-estimating.

*raises hand up* Im guilty Twisted Evil

i have seen guy with girlfriend at nsrcc range.

guy hit the ball....topped and ball rolled to slightly more than 130-150m range.

girlfriend said.."WOWmore than 200m drive!!!!"

boyfriend said.."no la...carry 180m, roll to 200m only la."

would you say that the girl was faking it to boast his ego??? ROFL

I'm just curious CYP. Was that you testing Nike drivers at OCC a few weeks ago ( wearing orange pants) If so, the ball was definitely not going 260. More like 220. I also thought you hit draws, not block fades. Maybe it was a different guy that looked like you or maybe the nike driver not suited to your swing

If so I can so hit 300m.... Tim tee off shot was just beside my tee off shot when we played the last time at Kranji.






Note: I was playing hole 12 while he was playing hole 13. Hahaha I borrow his fairway and landed just beside him....

since you are not going to share how u hit 260m, maybe u lets us know who is your coach??? so i can take lesson from him or maybe he is a friend of mine also.

cheers!
