You've played with them. Guy (usually a guy) smashes it 350 yards! You wait. You watch. You listen. Off in the distance, and way right of the fairway, you hear the car window break in the parking lot, 350 yards away. Yes, the guy can hit it a ton. But where it goes, nobody knows (until you hear the glass breaking). Distance doesn't mean squat if it's not in the fairway. Sure, once in a while he'll find the short grass but only after making several triple bogeys.

Remember, control beats power virtually every time when it comes to amateur golfers. Here's your par 4. One in the fairway. One to the green. One in the hole.

Don't be a horse's behind. Keeping it in play is the fun part of golf.

Enjoy the game again,
