Played with a driver for 1st 9 holes and was always 30 metres away from this guy. Come to the 2nd 9 holes, he switch to tee off with hybrid and I and I still can't hit further than him...

this really made me want to...... Quitting golf.

Buy Nike's Tiger clubs. It will help you hit farther!

It's not just about hitting far! Putting game is more important!

Chris, it's not all about distance bro, I play with you I also behind you in drives.

In the end it's about how you arrive la....

How many times have many of us almost driven the green on a short par 4 and still end up with at best a bogey, at worst triple?

You need DGMan's photo for your bag, then you will have higher GIR.

Played with a lady who drove roughly the same distance as me and beat me by about 15 strokes (she shot in the low to mid 70s). I often golf with people who are much longer and better than me, and it's quite fun to see how they play. One of my playing partners is actually a guy in his mid 70s who kicks my ass almost all the time. But it's all good; I enjoy playing with them regardless.

Point is: don't worry about how much further they can hit the ball, or how well they can draw or fade, or whatever. The good thing about golf is that you're constantly competing against yourself, and that's what keeps us going back. Just enjoy the game and the company! Smile

This problem is easy to solve, just bet bigger....and your shot will be straighter and and you will lose lesser balls!

though 12 lost balls = 24 strokes ( 1 penalty + 1 rehit)
