So I joined a couple guys at Kinderlou for a little member guess tourny.  I got teamed with three other great guys, one which is also on here.  Well to the story of the bomber.  It started on hole 9, crushed one leaving less then a 100 yards, then to #1 less then 30.  Then he really SMOKED one on #3 a par 5 585 yarder, I think it was playing into a slight breeze, maybe couple mph.  Drum roll-----412 yards leaving 190 to the hole, birdie because 2nd was over an elevated green.  Shot eagle on the next par 5 which was almost 650 yards with a green side bunker hole out.

The way he attacked the ball was unreal.  I hear people talk about this all the time, the 300 yard drive.  Heck I hit it 300, one of the other guys hit it 312 or so but when you still have to drive another 100+ yards down the fairway to his ball, man.  I will say this, it was fun to watch.

The South Georgia Classic will be fun to watch when the nation wide guys get out there.

i haven't been paired with a 400+ driver yet, but its been fun playing with some who are 325-350 off the tee consistently- and also have the short game. always makes me practice harder.

LOL, no none of that.  But I was saying after just about every shot.WWWOOOOOOOWWWWWW or daaaaannnnggggg
OOOOmyGOD.  I mean this guy was hitting longer then the Pros I have watched.  If he could just get his putts down to high 20's to 31 or 32 , I really think this guy could compete on the Nation Wide.

He had 199 left to the hole all carry and hit a mid iron into the green side bunker.  He holed it for eagle

His irons were long and on line, short game was good.  He just needed to work on the putter a little.  He took massive divots.  The size of my entry way carpet.

199 left into a hole that plays 650 is a huge tee shot. Down wind? Down hill?

If not, hitting the ball 450 warrants a try on the long drive circuits.

So fun.  A friend of mine has a friend that competes on the long drive tour (whatever it's called).  I've played one round with him and it was the most impressive thing I've ever seen.
Possibly my favorite golf story; on the third hole, a ~350 yard, steeply uphill par 4 with a TON of bunkers in front of the green.  He had never played the course, so I tell him it plays nearly 400 cause of the hill and the last thing you want is to be in the bunkers short.  He replies, "I think I got it" and pulls driver.  He proceeds to destroy the ball and we're all watching with the "I think he made it look" on our faces when... POOF!  A huge billow of dust explodes off the hill beyond the green.  He overshot the green by about 20 yards.  Something I will truly never forget seeing.

When i was a teaching pro in alberta i got a chance to watch jamie sadlowski both on the range and playing in a big calcutta tourney. I'm not a huge hitter but not short either im usually out there in the 290 to 310 range. watching sadlo hit the ball was like being a 12 year old playing alongside a tour pro like daly. he was carrying balls out of the range over the road over 2 culverts and landing in an Rv park some 375 yds away everytime. our director of golf at the time told him he couldnt hit anything but irons on the range as it was a saftey concern for people in the park. but he was crazy long with every club in the bag one hole at the course is a 310yd up hill par 4 sadlo would routinely hit 3irons into the green like it was a par 3 CRAZZZZY long. it truly is like watching a different game when you see these long bombers play
