For me and my definition of average, it is not a pure average of every time you swing the driver. It would be silly to include a topped shot, and equally silly to include one that got an extra country

My "average good drive" is much farther than my "average drive" selected in this poll because it's dragged lower by too many crappy hits.    Also playing with a 16 year old driver I've got t

Punched .... 260 yds avg, but have had a number in the 270/280's when the fairways were extra firm. This was my P/B this year.

 

It was Oct 6th, a sunny warm morning with a south wind, was hitting the ball well and when we got to #8 a 343 yd par 4, I hit a high draw with a push wind that bounced a number of times on our hard fairways, the guys said you need to measure that shot, walked out to the ball my G80 said it went 326 yds my P.B. ever. Was about 19 yds from the blue pin, hit solid wedge to 3 ft & made birdie, finishing with the same ball, 3 over 75 one stroke higher than my lowest round on this track.

 

It was a good year, our seasons over we got snow, thinking of upgrading to new G425 Max, need every advantage technology has available.

My "average good drive" is much farther than my "average drive" selected in this poll because it's dragged lower by too many crappy hits. 

 

Also playing with a 16 year old driver I've got to be leaving yards on the table... I really need to upgrade to a new "used" driver next year... maybe a G30, but I'm not spending $400 plus on the newest driver like my buddies because I still hit it past them 🙂

Pick up a used Srixon 785.  I got mine for $185 in mint condition with a CK Pro Orange 70TX shaft and it goes just as far as everything else out there.  I hit it straighter too

Sucks living in Florida in the summer. Not because of the heat and humidity...nope, it's because my drives carry 270 and rollout to 272. 

 

At disney just a week ago, tight par4 that I always play driver off the deck for my tee shot. Rollout was about 5 yards. Everything stays wet.

 

Yeah carry + Rollout is a tough one on us folks haha

 

I play in the northeast and play at 7AM on soaked courses. I haven't had more than 10yds of rollout since aught'6

 

I picked 260-280 and i can carry it 260 fairly easy

My home course tends to be wet and my carry distance and total distance are usually the same!!  I'm 78 and carry drives around 210 yards, but when I was in my twenties managed 270-280 regularly, with persimmon and sloppy balls. Sadly, I have had five spinal operations so have slowed down a lot!!

Yep. I'm a consistent 265-270 carry guy. Since about july it's plop and stop here in Orlando. I live golf in Texas in March. I hit bombs out there. 300+ unless it's into the wind. But it's 30+yards of roll.

Keep getting after it! I love it. I plan to be knocking it around when I'm 78 too.

6 out of 7 in the 30-39 group hits it past me? I refuse to believe that.

Hey chopper, what are you hitting there?

Callaway Rouge Sub Zero 9°
TM SLDR S 17°
Mizuno MP Fli-Hi 21° and 24°
Titleist AP2 710 5-pw
Wilson FG Tour PMP 52, 56, 60­°
Rife 460 Tour Blade

After how long does being "out of form" turn into "a bad golfer"?

40-49: 240-260 here based on how my rounds have played out this season. Very little rollout due to it being fairly wet here most of the time, and temperatures very rarely are over 20 C. On the two days I played where the temps were over 25, I think I was hitting it about 10 yards longer (nice to play one club less).
