Default distance or accuracy?????

I am by no means a bigg bomber on my drives..... I am however pretty gosh darn accurate which allows me to par most and birdie some..... I have played with people who can spank me on the drive but not beat me on the hole..... although I do wish I had more distance I would not be willing to give up accuracy and control..... what about you?????

Unless you're playing wide open courses all the time, distance alone will not get you very far.

Accuracy, no question. Although I have no credentials in this area

Both would be ideal of course, but distance in the shule or OB is useless. You can manage pars almost always with accuracy.

I know a guy that can bomb it 400ft plus, but he can't approach for putt to save his life.

I definitely rely on my accuracy to keep me in the game. I max out at about 275 feet, and I would say I average more around 225 to 260 feet. Most of the people I play with can out drive me by at least 30 to 50 feet on most drives, maybe more on good drives, but I still stay in competition because I have a lot more accuracy than they do.

So far it's 17-0 unanimous. Guess that answers that question. Here's another way to look at it: on a par 3 hole, distance only matters on your first throw. After that it's all about accuracy.

I think Yogi Berra was the first to say this.

It is worth noting that it's a lot easier to be accurate at 300' if you're maxing out at 400' rather than maxing out at 300'. You have a lot more disc and line options when you're not trying to throw as far as you possibly can.
