I feel like he said that a long time ago. Back when 400' was real long distance, and Vipers were the big D
driver.

Even if he said it a long time ago, it still holds true today. 375 accurately and great putting will crush anybody out there. For Pete's sake, look what Will did on hole 17 at this year's USDGC.
Look at what Holly did. She played awesome, and she can't throw anywhere near 375 accurately and consistently. (no offense Holly)

Accuracy is key. All you noobs out there, be accurate. Chicks don't care about the long throw. They care about you banging the chains.

Considering the courses used in Worlds, where the longest ones are usually not played in their longest configuration due to timing considerations, accurate 375 is all that's needed distancewise as long as you can putt like a champ. It's the Memorial, GCC and a few other events that have courses where more and accurate distance than 375' can matter.

(open field) I say 450 is needed and you need to be able to land that in a 30 foot circle 7 out of 10 times if you want to win. Top pros should be 9 out of 10 at 375 and thats because they are throwing fairway drivers or mids so they are very predictable, Hyzers should be 95 out of 100 since they are so easy to control at only 375 that is if you can throw 450.

Ha. It's funny how paper and real life are so different. (Will on 17 at USDGC)

For the argument's sake, it's assumed that if you are accurate to 375, you're capable of throwing farther if needed.

Paul is on target when he says 450 but IMO that's max D needed and it helps more on par 4s & 5s. Gold and blue level courses are played in Worlds with par 3 holes mostly under 380' if the designer followed guidelines. Super Gold distances are mostly found in the Final 9. So getting in the circle 7 out of 10 at 375' should be enough to win Worlds, not necessarily win some of the NTs.

I will agree with McBeth since he has won Worlds twice.

Max D 375 means you cannot hyzer 375 but closer to 325

Is that on the day of the win, or your typical ability?

Without having stats in front of me to back it up, I think Paul's numbers translate to rounds over 1100. Is that about right Chuck?
