Hit a golf ball over 300 yards

September 6, 2006

This Sunday, on the 7th hole at Turkey Point Golf Course, I decided to take a big swing with dad's "Bang" driver. I'm used to steel shafts, and so comparibly wobbly graphite shafts are a challenge, especially on a club as long as a driver. Before I even picked up the club I was contemplating my 300 yard goal. After a few moments of intense concentration I wound up and gave it my best shot.

About 295 yards.

In the end it's hard to tell whether it's 295, 300, etc, but you just have to give it your best guess and go with it. Close but no cigar!
