Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

Greatest comeback in all of sports. 2 years on from barely being able to swing a club to Masters Champ, quite amazing.

Get on the trackman or any kind of launch monitor. Easy to find out any number you want.

True GPS doesnt lie. We only had fairway yard markers and 150 yard from front of green posts till GPS. When GPS came to course golf carts many area courses hired land surveyors to center tee boxes and greens and set monuments at designated yardage from front of green. We found some yardage markes as much as 30 yard off. Most likely greens or tees were redone and yard markers not moved. Good caddies learned the art pacing off distance.

Guess what, Tiger had similar talent to Nicklaus with long irons. This advantage was wiped out with the development of the new technology in the early 2000's. The guys ranked around 100 in the world who went from struggling to pull off shots with long irons suddenly had hybrids to help them hit a high, soft shot along the lines of what Jack or Tiger could do with the older technology.

Tiger is an old school guy. If anything, I believe he has actually struggled to adapt to the newer technology. It's designed to go dead straight and he prefers to shape the ball. Bubba is the only guy I have seen in the modern game who can really shape the ball easily with the modern equipment instead of playing straighter shots. Meanwhile Tiger will aim 30 yards left trying to play a big fade and then hit a dead straight pull shot. Too stubborn to just go with the straight shot like so many other Tour players do today.
When Tiger reaches 18 he is co-goat 19 the goat. All the comparisons wont get you there.

You forgot to mention golf course maintenance has really improved. The old time golfers played on some cow pastures in there day.

The gps has a “mark” feature where you hit mark at the tee spot and then mark again at the ball. Tells you exact distance. Busted so many dudes with this, thinking they were going 300. It’s quite funny

If you have never seen the guy hit a ball then you're talking out your ass. Years ago when I was about 30 years old I went out to the course just to hit a few balls have a cocktail and hang out. When I got out there they were having the regional long drive qualifier. There were guys from all over there because Springfield is smaller field. Anyway I think 390 was the longest drive. This was back when metal woods were becoming all the rage and some people were experimenting with longer shafts. Any way I figure I'd pay my $5.00 and hit three balls. On the 1st ball I just wanted to make good contact and hit it within the grid. I did just that and the guy called back on the walkie talkie 301! I thought great there's no need to embarrassed about that. On the second ball I kept the same mentality except I just thought a little harder. Again I striped it down the middle of the grid and when the guy came back on the radio 315! I thought wow that's pretty good for a never was been 30 year old golfer. So on the 3rd ball I kept the same mentality again except think at it just a little harder still. Hit it harder but don't swing harder. I executed for the 3rd swing in a row. When the guy called back on the radio 330! Wow! I said I can't hit it any better so I'm done. The kicker was I was still using a persimmon headed driver. I can't remember if it was the Ben Hogan or the Tommy Armour.

Anyway the point is that there are plenty of guys that blow it way past 300 yards everyday. Prisonbitch's GPS be damned.

Nicklaus hit one 341 at the PGA LD over 50 years ago. Dude was a beast.

I am fairly tall and flexible. I max out at 280 on a GC2 with a 107 mph SS.

I've had drives go 320, but that's when the fairways were baked, it was 100 degrees out and I had a tailwind.

I've touched 300 before, but that included at least 100 yards on the cart path.

Everyone overestimates their length. In more ways than one
You are more or less right that most people over estimate, and with the help of elevated tee's it's easier to hit further than what you would on a flat plane. With that said it's really not difficult for most amateurs sub 10 handicap to hit it over 250 yards these days.
