Response to Re: Sixty to eighty yards!!!


Herbert, Moe could whip you and me with one hand tied behind his back...his arms/wrists were so strong you couldn't hardly see his wrist bones. Unlike me, Moe was strong....but I'm working on it!!

In 1986, Greg Norman, at 31 years of age, was the second longest driver on tour at about 280. Moe Norman, 26 years older than Greg Norman, at age 57, hit his average, ho-hum drive 245. The difference in age is 26 years and the difference in distance is 12.5 per cent.

Remington, when using decent golf balls, hits the ball 217, with a driver from about 1986, and Remington is 36 years older than Greg Norman in 1986 and 10 years older than Moe. If you gave Remington the same 12.5 per cent difference to Moe, then I should be hitting 214.

So, actually, I'm hitting three yards farther than I should be!!
