Played behind a BIG hitter yesterday
Playing at a local muni ... fourseome in front of us was waiting till the group in front of them was off greens before they drove ... finally, on the 6th hole, guy in front us waves up our twosome. He says ...
"Watch this ... here's why we have to wait so long to hit. This guys hits it 400 hundred." And he holds up 4 fingers, just in case we were too stupid to understand what 400 meant.
Well, the guy hit it 400 - about 175 forward and 225 to the right.
And this continued for the next 12 holes. Plus, the guy would often bring multiple club for tee shots - an iron, a "normal" driver, and his "long drive" driver.
On the 7th hole, he even went to the pro shop to get a drink, to show how long he had to wait before he could drive.
On one hole, he was literally 3 holes right of his own fairway ... honestly, the safest place to be would have been in the center of his fairway.
He hit one "good" drive ... on 17 .... it was dead straight, maybe 300. Unfortunately, the hole is a 90º dogleg.
