    Yep, you're a complete bunch of wussies!! Only 350+?? I'm 66 years old, collecting Social Security, and out drive EVERYONE at our course. I haven't had a single drive, this season, under 400... except on short par 4's where I always drive the green. I've got an xxxx stiff 'FULLABOLOGNA', special order shaft in my Big Bopper driver. The driver came from a tour van. PGA pros all wanted to play it, but their endorsement contracts wouldn't let them.

    I did see a Medicus commercial, yesterday, that promised me 20 more yards. The credit card was out, but I decided I'm outdriving most of the courses I play. Until they start getting these courses up around 8,000 yards, I'll have to stay with what I have.

    Some guys can helicopter their wedge 350 yds. Now that's what it takes.

    There is actually a guy on here who owns the hammer, but I shall let him remain nameless. No, it's not me.

    eh, I also had one of those Shovel heads called Nickents. My Son might still have it, sent it to him.
    Come to think of it, I can blame YOUSE GUYS for my ho-ing that heavy son of a gun Driver.

    You know it is a bit stiff -as games go. How about spicing it up with some extras? I like the caddy races at the waste management.

    Yes! Phoenix is the epitome of fun Pro golf. That's why Tiger doesn't play there anymore.
    There's also the water-skipping contest at Augusta. Not nearly as exciting, but cool nonetheless.

    I can't wait till a caddy takes a spill on to the green and tears it up while bending all the clubs.

    That's Gna be a mess.
