375ft to win a World Championship?
 
So I read that Ken Climo once said that if a person can throw 375ft they can win a World Championship. I feel that it may be possible but would be very hard considering all the huge distance throwers nowadays. A person only throwing 375ft on 500ft+ holes would have a huge disadvantage & their lack of distance would cost them strokes. Thoughts?

Didn't he also say he expects to make 50% of his putts from 30'?

He's just messing with us.

Depends on how accurate the 500ft throwers are. I'd take a controlled and accurate 375ft over semi accurate 500ft.

Who was the last open champ that topped out at 375ft?

Sure, but the thing is to have pinpoint accuracy at 375' means you have the ability to throw significantly farther. Nobody is controlled and accurate every time at their max distance.

Good point

If I could throw 375' with perfect accuracy down a 15'-wide tunnel, or on a similar fairway turning right, or left, or going up/downhill, or basically for every shot off the tee, I'd take it every time over a 500' throw in the wide open, and I'd be a World Champ.

Unless you're playing a course that is all wide open and long bombs, I'd rather throw the 375' accurate shot for every tee shot. Putt like a boss. Cash my checks. Stamp my name on the Buzzz, and putt with it -- go all Iron Man for every tourney, just a Buzzz, 375', and putting with it. #dominate

Even on a wide-open 500' hole---which, hopefully, isn't too common at Worlds---the 500' thrower would have to be not just long, but accurate. If he's 40' left or right, he'll gain a stroke only on the times he makes that putt. Otherwise, the 375' thrower will have an easy approach and drop-in, and both will get a 3.

It's more like the 425' holes where he'll have an advantage.

Ken Climo once said..... When did he say that?

Maybe we should discuss this in the time context of the statement...
