400 average?

My average drive is about 30 miles or so, but only 'cause I don't like playing the two closest courses repeatedly.

Ok, I've made a couple joking posts in this thread, but in reality, my D on a flat semi open hole is between 425-450'. Those max out usually about 480' with my longest ever being 545'

oh, we wanted it, just not enough room.
at about 500'ish we run out of mowed field

well at least you have a descent frame of reference for the distance.

I don't find these #'s hard to believe...so what if 'x' can throw this far. I got a damn good arm but I'm no pro cause my mental game and consistenty sucks...but I have the ability to pump them out there.

I throw it far enough to have fun. I'm only interested in tuning the accuracy right now, with the goals I have set for myself.
