Do you feel confident enough with your Driver to Swing for the bleachers when there is no danger whatsoever within your landing Zone?

What about danger only on one side?:nono::soldier::drinks::thp:

I only know one way. "Grip it and rip it" gets me into a hell of a lot of trouble most of the time. :LOL:

I do but I'm often longer if I swing at 90%. I like to think longer on the backswing if I'm trying to get max yardage.

For the most part yes, if I'm really swinging well I'll put a little extra on it but that's pretty rare lol

I will try to swing as fast as I can while still staying balanced. I do this by trying to turn my hips as fast as I can. If the timing hold I will hit a dead straight bomb!

Depends on the day. When I'm not in swing update jail, I can hit fairly consistent drives with swings in the 108-109 range. I back off to 105 when "nervous." I can swing up to 112-113 with less consistent, but sometimes really great outcomes. If I am swinging well, I would put a bigger move on the ball and let it fly. Sure.

You want to see me let loose? Scramble time! Then, I am swinging to reach every green. :D








Don't usually make it though. :(

I love holes that let me take a big swing with the driver.

Not really...maybe 20% of the time... After I've hit a few good tee shots in a row.

No. That's really when my slice shows up. I think I've got it tamed and don't want to see it again.

Yeah, if I got a hundred yards right or left I can totally swing outta my shoes LOL Not long ago I hit my highest ever swing speed while practicing and it was so fun. I hit 104 and at age 65 that was super cool. I know you fast swingers will baulk at that, but that was a milestone for me :p

Ricky Bobby is not a thinker. Ricky Bobby is a driver.
