Perhaps not, but when you walk up to a 350' hole and can only get there with a distance driver and the guy who can throw 500' can reach it with any disc in his bag, he's got an advantage with all those options. Sure, just being able to throw 500' rarely gains you many strokes, but in subtle ways it gives you other big advantages.
