Are We Really Hitting The Ball Further

By Darren

Are We Really Hitting The Ball Further?

During the 1990 Australian Open Greg Norman holed out on the par 5 5th hole at the Australian golf club for an Albatross.

If you have ever stood next this spot 287 meters from the hole you can really understand just how far he launched his 3 wood on that day.

A recent game at the Australian made me think that we really have not come that far with golf equipment as I hit my 3 wood from the spot and it didn't reach the green.

Instead what has really happened is golf clubs have become more forgiving, not more long hitting.
