That isn't their average over the course of their career. Anyone at anytime can catch lightning in a bottle and have a great week. Over the course of a career you wouldn't gamble on that 250 yard drive week in and week out to win.
If your kid is only doing 250 it might be good to have a talk with them if they think there going to dominate the pga tour. But at the same time I could see where they get a scholarship if they have good fundamentals and are scoring decent.
One issue I see too many people get caught up in driving distance and forget is only a factor in a few holes a round. The vast majority or holes are not par 5s or long par 4 on any course. More shots are actually lost missing fairways, greens and not converting putts within 10 feet.
I know this because I have seen it first hand as there is one girl on the local tour. I would say she drives between 150-180. It a good drive but not long either for what I would consider a top junior girl at 11-12. The thing is she plays her game well and hits fairways and GIR and makes the putts. When she short for a hole she can place the ball for a easy chip to still make par. The thing is she is hard to beat because she still scores low and is consistent. I learned you have to play with what you got rather then try and do something you canít.
