Played a round this evening with a young kid from work. Only his second time out this year.
Got to a 325 yard par 4. Rest of us all hit solid drives, leaving us anywhere from 40-60 yards in.
Young guy sticks the driver back in the bag and pulls hybrid. "my driver would fly the green so better hit hybrid."
"Uh huh, I think to myself, let's see it then."
He absolutely cranked that hybrid and ended up on the green pin high. Didn't even tee it up, just dropped the ball and swung.
Effortless looking swing too.
Later on a 520 yard par 5 he had 145 into the pin after his tee shot (with driver this time)
I've played with some long hitters over the past 20 years or so but never seen anything like that. Had the short game to match it too. Ended up shooting 69.

The swing speed was impressive, but I was more impressed that he made consistent, solid contact, and how good and efficient his swing really was.

I know one. He's the only one, and I know a lot of golfers. He was the good at everything guy. All state in baseball, joined the football team as a senior because he lost a bet....starting QB on a team that won a state championship despite never having played organized football up to that point. I was a decent golfer in high school and he was the #1 golfer on our team. I was #2, played and practiced all the time, never could beat him out for the #1 spot even though he never practiced outside of required practices. His Dad was a good player but passed away when this guy was in junior high. He never had much coaching and never took a lesson as far as I know.
A bit of a bummer story because the guy is in his 40s now and despite a lot of opportunities, he never did much of anything. Still plays the same local course in the same small town, still has the same crappy job he got when he was 19. I ran into some old high school friends a few months ago, and they say he's still a helluva player.
