    I’m maybe a 12 now and total driving is maybe 270-280.

    Yet, I was about a 16 last year with the same driver length but a little more off-the-tee accuracy. The difference was quality of approach shots.

    I think it’s a pretty simple equation: can you leave yourself with a reasonable par 4 approach after your tee shot based on the tees you choose to play off of? If so, then scratch is feasible - there are no restrictions based on driver.

    103-108? Current is 4.5.

    On another note, handicaps aren't the be all, end all at judging skill. I looked up a guy the other day who was a +1.7 and every round on there was a tournament round. That same guy probably could have a handicap much better if he was only picking rounds by himself at his home course or with his friends.

    In search of solid contact...

    Age 30, swing speed ~108, carry ~260, HC 7
    Have been playing/practicing seriously for a few years and I will say hitting the 250+ carry threshold was a gamechanger for me. Mid-irons to short irons into almost all par 4s cut 3 or 4 strokes easily (play tees around 6500 yds)

    Chart is pretty accurate for me... around 250 carry, rollout dependent on conditions.
    I'm sure there is relationship to driving distance and handicap, but it is not definitive is all situations. I play with a few 90 mph swingers that have long iron games that keep them in the low single digits.

    Seems close. I don't play enough to improve.

    Livin' proof that Lefties are not naturally talented.

    With all this info could a certain type of ball played add or subtract from these totals???

    You don’t keep score but you know your SS and carry distance, and they just happen to be above average for a Tour Pro.

    Never change WRX.

    Not everyone plays this game to score as low as they can. Hitting greens is satisfying enough for me.

    Probably not unless you're having issues not holding greens.
