At the driving range I hit further then the distance of it, which was 300 yards which is good for me, if it was longer I would of been able to see how far I could of hit it, although due to high fences the ball just hit it..
Probably around 275 for me. I am not a strong driver. I am good with fairway woods and with my irons. Driving is not my strong point for sure. I should start lifting, get some more abdominal muscle and get those hips moving faster.
I have actually driven it around 300 yards before. I got extremely lucky and I was pounding them out on the course and I just happened to hit one pretty straight and I saw it land around the 300 flag. I'll tell you what, I was convinced that I was going to hit the PGA the next day.
I'm not the best driver either. I usually average about 190-230 yards. I have improved though. I used to be only able to drive like 150, but now as you can see, I'm up in the 200's. So I'm pretty proud of myself.
I'm really not a 'big hitter' - but I've always been pretty consistent/straight.
One of the best purchases I made last year was a 'clearance' Cobra SZ 460. I used a Calloway Biggest Big Bertha (I think the original one) for about 10yrs leading up to that, and probably averaged 240 - I could maybe get a touch more from time to time. But WOW, these big head/sweet spot drivers really work! I'm getting the same consistency, with 20 extra yards and more... I'm about 5-6'' - so I feel like a cartoon character with this thing!
I joke with my playing partners that I have 'embraced the technology' - don't fight it... They just roll their eyes..
I can drive almost every green at my home course. I drove the 18th yesterday and it's yardage is 317. If I really rip one and hit it solid I can drive about 320. My home course is easy on the front but the back is like hitting concrete greens.
