Didn't Climo suggest this mythical guy? And he never said the guy was perfectly accurate. Why aren't we assuming he's averagely accurate for a World Champion class player?

Pretty much (with Corey playing his 1994 equipment).
Maybe even worse then that since he'd be unable to reach par 3's that everyone could. Corey Pavin with Hickory Shafts and Featheries.

Why are we assuming that my guy needs a wide open course to compete? Are there not actual players who carve the woods, yet can't throw 400? Are there not actual players whose upshots are so good that they can 3 longer holes just like the top guys? Or players who putt lights out?

We also don't know when he said it. Could be a Cobra 375, not Blizzard Boss.

I think someone else said he suggested it in the 1990s.

And for all we know, Ken Climo may have once said it. So maybe he didn't.

Online distance argument

For the sake of this thread I'd say 15% or more of players in my area throw 375+ max d. It's not crazy anymore.

And why in real life, the guys who can throw 500 don't always win.
In real life the guy who can throw over 500 usually does win........... and his name is Paul McBeth

300 max / 250 deadly. Makes all putts. The top women usually hover around par, so keep that in mind.

There are only so many women that can throw over 300 feet anyway. The skill gap is much greater in FPO than MPO.
