The one hole i dont like there is that silly downhill par 5. However could you hit your drive you cant get on in two. Even if you hit a perfect lay up you still have a great big bloody tree to contend with!

I used to play off 4 and have taken the game up again after 20 years. I am hacking round in the mid to high 80's playing with borrowed clubs, that have stiff shafts. I can barely hit my hat with them due to back problems (that caused me to give up originally). I haven't kept up with modern technology (never hit metal woods before), but I think I will need to change my clubs if I want to improve a little.

I don't doubt that a good big hitting amateur could  hit their best drive longer than lots of pros.

No offence intended ronsk. Maybe there is a bit of confusion over your average and longest drives. I just find it hard to believe that a good handicapper who by their own admission tries to hit long drives all the time can find an extra 40 yards on some shots.An extra 40 yards through the air is a lot. Roughly 1 in 5 shots going 315 through the air when most of their other shots are going 275 which is pretty impressive in itself. Lets say you were measuring the longest drives of pros who were hitting it as hard as they could. I doubt they could find an extra 40 yards in 1 in 5 of their shots.

If someone says they can hit it 315 through the air ( 1 in 5 times ) the assumption is that they mean in completely neutral conditions with no wind and on flat fairways. For a bit of fun I would happily lay you evens you cant. You could have as many shots as you wanted but the terms would be you have to hit 20% of drives 315 yards or more.

315 through the air is massive.

No one on the PGA Tour is doing that. In fact Luke List is the longest at an average of 306. Bare in mind that distance will include some run and is being hit at temperatures much higher than in the UK.

---------------------------------

Sounds like the 11th. It's a very poorly designed hole, but there are a few at Heythrop. We walked the course as neither of us are fans of 'buggie golf' and it's a very tough walk. However, whilst walking, you do get a real feel for the way the layout has been thought through, and in my view, they could have done a much better job with the such a huge property.

Front nine is way better than the back, in my view.

It doesn't say how many of those are at altitude though.

If you are carrying it 315 20% of the time - 2 or 3 times a round then that is impressive especially in England.

What percentage of your 315 yard drives go straight?

First of all this figure of 20% is utter nonsense! I said that on average I hit one or two big drives per round. Taking yesterday's round as an example, I hit driver 13 times. I nailed two. By my calculations that is less than this phantom 20% figure.

A large percentage of my longer drives go very straight. When I drive the ball well I hit it straight. When I'm struggling I hit a cut and occasionally hit the double-cross hook.

What I find strange is that people are so amazed! I play golf with a few big hitters, and whilst most are very similar to me in as much as they manage it relatively rarely, each of them is capable of hitting it out there 300+ on the fly.

Last year I came across a 22 year old lad (played off 6), in the National Matchplay Championship, who hit it 300+ with greater regularity than I do. He had been playing from the age of 13 and had never got lower than 5. His long game was excellent, yet his wedge game was that of a double figure handicapper. I asked him why he felt he couldn't perform with his wedges, as he obviously had plenty of practice with them. His answer? 'Don't know, never really thought about it'... This is the sort of stuff that amazes me, not a claim that someone can smash the occasional driver!
Report paddletoe August 19, 2013 10:12 PM BST
The sceptic in me would say even a fairly long hitter who might be able to get a ball to fly close to 300 could NEVER hit it 315 if we are talking about driving distance in COMPLETELY NEUTRAL conditions. Unless your getting some help with he conditions I don't see how you can find that extra distance which is a lot when your talking about already hitting it close to 300. Maybe I am wrong but that's my view. Lots of factors in golf can fool someone into thinking they are hitting it longer than they are. That's a more plausible explaination of finding that extra distance.

Apologies if someone has already made this point as I have not read every post on this thread.  The Stats for long driving on the Tours are calculated by selecting 2 holes (par 4s or 5s) one as directly in to the wind as poss and one directly with the wind as poss) taking the carry distance of both and averaging it.  So a Colsearts figure of 306 might equate to c. 350 carry with the wind and c. 250 carry into the wind.  That is pretty crucial when everyone is talking about how far they hit it when it is probably not often in tot he teeth of a wind.  Many will be talking when it was a nice following wind.  The sweet spot is the biggest nightmare for me - don't know when it's coming (once or twice a round) and 25 yds through the green........
Report paddletoe August 20, 2013 11:57 AM BST
Yes, think that point was mentioned inside but probably not as clearly as you made it. With those stats for the pros you would also need to factor in that on some holes players might not take out driver and give it the full treatment. I would imagine most of the pros maximum carry distance would be greater than their stats if they were giving their driver the full treatment in the way ronsk does and not having to worry about making the cut!. Nothing personal against Ronsk by the way. Against that however, ball carry will be longer in most American conditions than in the England.

But for the purpose of this debate I think its been established that if someone says they can hit a ball a certain distance its a meaningless statement unless they are talking about being able to do so in completely neutral conditions. No wind and no elevation on fairway. Otherwise you could just chose a downhill hole with a big wind behind you.

Can Ronsk really carry the ball 315 in those neutral conditions in England. It is possible but I would bet against it all day long.
Report aberdonia August 20, 2013 8:09 PM BST
No way can you carry it in the air over 300 yards in calm english conditions.

When you get a tough summers day in Scotland the pros are lucky to to fly it 240.

A 300 yard carry is huge.  Your ball must be in the air for ever before it drops.

I could only carry it 300 in a 30 mile an hour helping wind.

I have drove 350 yard greens, but that was in a gale on a brick hard fairway.

In a match on Saturday we played against a guy who left his partner a 53yard shot on a 467 yard hole,  my partner hit a reasonable enough drive and I had 207 left, tees where well back and pin was just behind centre, course was playing a fair bit longer than it would have been before the rain we have had lately, this shot would possibly got the green a few weeks back?
On the plus side for the length the hole is slightly downhill from about 300yards out, but not massively. I played against this same person a couple of years back and he drove the 375 yard first hole, completely flat hole.
Anyway all I really want to say is that at no other hole did he knock it more than about 20yards past my partners drive, guess he would have averaged about 280 to 300 on the rest of his tee shots.

I play with a lad who is very long. Long drive guys say he could compete on their circuit if he worked at it, but his interests are elsewhere. His swing speed is 140mph, and sometimes a few mph over that, as verified many times on differing trackman devices. Its amazing to witness him playing a straight flat Par 560yd 5 in pretty neutral conditions and hit Driver + PW to the green. He definitely carries it well over 300yds, and his longer hits with bounce and roll are close to 400yds on a good day (as measured with a laser not the hole yardage markets). But, he sprays it, and has a 12 handicap.
We played a mess about 9-hole 1 club the other day, the long hitting lad, me and two lads from the pro shop. I took a 2 iron, the pro shop lads took 6 irons, the long hitting lad took a stock 34 inch putter alone. On 490yd Par 5 the long hitting lad flew it 30yds over the green on his second shot, the ball was going higher than I can hit a wedge. He comfortable knocks it to the end of the range with a putter and thats 285yds. Its fun, its a sideshow, and amazing to watch, but it isnt really golf :) There are some people who really do hit the ball a long way, but they are pretty few and far between.

Saxon - My turn to be slightly awkward! I have had to change the date of a pre-arranged match from Thursday 5th to Tuesday 3rd, so can no longer make that date. Here are some dates that, as things stand, I'm certainly available and you can work your timetable around them.

Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th & Wednesday 18th.

I can make other days (especially Thursday's) if we were to decide to give the Rye Hill offer a miss go elsewhere?

Leave it with you for now.

Welsh open shots.

Hole #1
Robert Rock tee = 285 yards.
Chris Wood tee = 330 yards.
Danny Willett tee = 330 yards.

Rocks approach = 10 feet pin.
Wood approach = 30 feet pin.
Willett approach = 3 feet pin.

Rock = par.
Wood = par.
Willett = birdie.

Accuracy of shot to pin is #1 importance, imo.  But you need a good solid repeatable swing to achieve that.

We never did get that game sorted, Saxon. I'm still bombing it if you're still a non-believer! ;0)
