Can I Still Drive It 350 And Over? (I Say Yes)

I say that because of the drive I hit on the range yesterday, with a used range ball, that went 332 yards if it went an inch, because I was able to actually laser measure it when it stopped.

I mention all the time that there are mounds at the back of the range guarding the Par 3 course beyond it and, depending on how close you are to the back limits of the range tee deck, can be up to 350 yards distant.

Just Another Day At The Range (330 Yard Drive)

I was at the range for a couple of hours today doing some work on my swing changes and hitting some balls, but I won’t have the time to get into it all until tomorrow.

Speed Work Soreness! Taking Another Look @ The Long Drive Swing

It’s either the mid-winter doldrums or I’ve reached the end of the line looking at the mechanics of the for-now named Post-Modern swing model.

Also, I really went at it speed work-wise yesterday and just about every back and rib muscle is protesting, so I’m taking another look at the mechanics of what I call the traditional long-drive swing motion.
