If you're on this forum you're probably an enthusiast and not an average golfer. You've probably had multiple lessons, practice and have been fitted for clubs. The average golfer doesn't do that. I think just about anyone has the ability to hit it 280 if they are under 40, somewhat athletic, in decent shape, received lessons and implement practice on the range to make the best of those lessons. Those that only play a couple weekends a year and never practice far outnumber those that play regularly and practice. Which group do you the average wrx'er is in?

I Guess the op thinks these guys on the BST are buying and trading 80g TX shafts for looks ?  You know because itís cool to swing rebar at 85mph and roll it to the ladies box.  Really?  

You need to get out more.  Find out where the local college teams practice.  Walk and watch.   Some beasts out there.  Didnít you see the Chinese kid on morning drive from Perdue I think it was.  Kid had thighs that looked like tree trunks.  Was at least 6ft4.  And simply smoked the ball.  And heís at Perdue.  Not really known as a golf Mecca school.  They walk among us man.  All around.

Edit. Illl give up ianother hint. What time of day do you normally play ?  If is before noon. Yo I arenít going to see this animal.  He isnít rolling out for a 8am tee time unless itís a tournament round.  Youíll find him walking from 3 pm on.  Maybe alone.  Maybe in a pack   But not ever a dew sweeper.

I went to the Philadelphia Golf Show today and they had a launch monitor long drive contest- the top 5 distances for men 372, 354, 352, 344, 338. I was getting my usual 285-300ish distance and thinking that’s pretty good. Dude next to me had a “less than pretty” swing and was ripping ball after ball 350.

For seniors the top 3 were 325, 320, and 315.

There are a lot of people out there who can hit driver a long way.

I found wrx after getting into golf a coupla-few years ago. This place is everything a golfer could hope for and more.
But playing obsessively for a few years and reading these threads hasn't made me much longer. I'm still on the wrong side of 40 and work at a desk. Add family to that, and...
And I suspect the averages as they apply to the population at large also weigh heavily on this Select population. There's a certain Calvinism to be sure, but reality must intrude bc of its own determinism.
So.. I'd stipulate to a 25pct uprate to anyone here over the average golfer stats. So 90pct can't hit over 250, 99 pct can't get over 300, the other 1pct are over 300 regularly enough.
Lensing through the virtual world of the net plus typical male braggadocio, you could understand why any mild skeptic wouldn't want to just agree that everyone here hits 300 just bc they're here...

Most of the population on here are more than likely getting the most, or near the most out of their physical capabilities. The ďaverage golferĒ is one who does not.  The vast majority are older and not in the best physical shape and who periodically play golf but arenít really golfers.  No more than some dad who once a month goes down to the local Y and shoots free throws can call himself a basketball player.

Quite a few pages back I posted referring to the idea that most of the average golfers are like Phillip Seymour Hoffman making it rain in Along Came Polly.

If you typically hit it 285-3 hundy, then you’re  about 100 yards into most of your 4  pars and you can reach most par 5s. So how do you manage to be a 20 HCP?  That is remarkable.

Play regularly with a guy who can easily crank it out there 330. But he also regularly cold tops it 100 yards, hits it 100 yards offline, or chunks 3 wedges in a row.

Why is it no matter the topic most of the posters claim they hit 300 plus off the tee. I'm not saying they don't but here in the metro area of NY where their is way too many golfers I have only seen a hand full hit it 300 yards. No matter where I have played . How come on the forum everyone claims they play like a pro. I don't  believe most of them
People tend to overestimate their "size" in everything... My good tee shots are about 275-280.  I know a few people who hit it over 300, but they're obviously few and far between.  However, the people who are spending time on a golf forum are probably a little better and longer off the tee than your average golfer.

I probably average less than 200 with my driver due to slices, shanks, etc.  Best case, I doubt I carry more than 240.  A good drive for me is probably anything over 220 and in play.  That said, I play with friends that are worse than me that can definitely put it out over 300.  Rarely in a good spot, but they can crush the ball with the driver.

Now that RBIm has raised his fees (yes, he is serious) to $300,000 per year (no actual students, he is waiting for the big one) and claims on Twitter Lydia Ko is finally ready to give him a call, I've decided to put off that trip to Scandanavia! So I won't come around. ;-)

Hoping things are going well Richard!

I went to the Philadelphia Golf Show today and they had a launch monitor long drive contest- the top 5 distances for men 372, 354, 352, 344, 338. I was getting my usual 285-300ish distance and thinking that’s pretty good. Dude next to me had a “less than pretty” swing and was ripping ball after ball 350.

For seniors the top 3 were 325, 320, and 315.

There are a lot of people out there who can hit driver a long way.

Sure they do and they can’t keep it in play on a golf course because it’s an all out swing with no real target. You’d still out score 95% of those guys hitting your 280

Some people bomb it. Some people lie. Some people are haters bc they can't bomb it.

Iím guessing you catch more than a few a hair thin? If you improve your AOA youíll probably get 15 more yards of carry. Good baseline if thatís your controlled driver swing.

Was in trying to get AoA to + or level. And working with M1 to get my spin down. I fade the ball so those -3 and -4 AOA were creating way too much spin, as you can see. But smash factors were acceptable, not all 1.50+ but pretty flush. Working on it.

Hit 2 new new all time personal ball speed records last night. Pretty cool since I havenít seen much improvement the past year or 2

Awesome!  Does this mean you're healthy now?

Not yet. Switched up some meds last week and hoping it is a large step in the right direction.

For the record this ball was with a OTR demo G400 LsT 8.5 with their stock copper x shaft. I also hit 198 with an M3 OTR demo but that shot spun quite a bit in the air and I lost some total yardage. Pretty confident I could get that spin down with a different weight setup and my shaft.. I know the speed jump comes from the lighter and longer drivers in comparison to what I use but I also got up to 193 with my real play driver which is really heavy (D9-E0 swing weight @ 44.5 inches with Tensei 80tx) and my spin/ dispersion was much better with my real driver.
First 2 pics are Ping G400 LsT and Srixon Z Star XV ball. Next 2 pics are my current M1 setup. (It was about 35-40 degrees that night). The best ball I hit all night with my play driver wasnít recorded because my recording device died right after I made contact with the ball.

Just built a new 3 HL wood (16.7* 2017 M2 tour issue w GD P9003x tipped 1.5Ē). Results are better than expected... the ball speed off this 3 wood is almost as high as the Rogue SubZero Driver which I hit on Trackman as well and it is not even close to the Ping or the M3 for me.

I play with two world long drive professionals who hit well past 300.  Really humbles you playing with them!

Youre averaging above 1.45 which is awesome/excellent and from the spin #s i figured you hit a cut. This is awesome because youre an instructors wet dream for a student!! believe it or not if you get your AOA to at least level consistently your spin will drop dramatically. Youd feel its the opposite but its not. Have you tweeked your ball position a litlle to see your #s? Id be curious if you moved your ball half a ball forward.Great stuff thanks for sharing!!! and keep up the great work
