    so im playing Bear Creek CC yesterday (crazy hard track 148 rating) and a 20 year old kid from the pepsi tour is with us.

    he bombs his drives regularly about 330 but he's left and right most of the day, i on the other hand only hit about 250 but almost always in the fairway

    which would you rather have if you could choose

    330 in fairway 20% of the time
    250 in fairway 80% of the time

    BTW he shot 79 i had an 86

    drive for show, putt for dough

    hitting fairways and hitting greens is great; sinking putts is money

    being out driven by 80 yards does play tricks with your mind

    I used to swing for the fences on my drives and could go 250-300 but had a wicked slice..Fixed the slice.. it shortened my drive considerably,but straight down the fairway now.Id rather have the shorter drive

    250 is still pretty good for a weekend golfer. Most old guys i play with hit it about 200-220 in the fairway 80% of the time. I'd rather hit it 280-300 20% of the time.

    Or fuck the cart girl.

    I'll take the yards. I can always kick the ball out from the rough. :hhh:


    You smoke weed when you play sipawitz? How does it affect your game?

    the kid had no fear because he'd still be hitting wedge from the rough in to the flag

    and i'd be hitting a 4 iron

    i agree with this statement in general, but guys like woods, bubba and dustin johnson have all said they dont care if they aren't always in the fairway as long as they are hitting a wedge in

    Go big, or go home! I suck, but long game has been good to me. I think I'm going conservatively.
