    Hi Chubbs... did you save the replay of the 414?

    Your stats say your longest is 240.

    It's B.S that when you purchase a ping g10 driver (and irons) and it still only goes 235 yds. and 255 with a 13 mph wind behind your back. I am almost 50 years old and still hit it 260-270 yds in the real world. These clubs should at least allow 275 yds max without wind to be more realistic. Come WGT fix this flaw.

    As been stated all over the forums... the restricted length of the clubs is to offset the super-human accuracy.  If you want 300 drives like the pros, you have to accept 70% fairways and 60% greens.

    Most of us like the fact that they (WGT) have chosen accuracy over distance.

    If you want both, Links2003 or any TWoods game.

    That makes absolutely no sense on a course like BPB...Why not penalize those who go for more distance with a faster and narrower click point for accuracy? The course is supposed to mimic the U.S Open, but we get pea shooter club lengths...WTF!?

    Since the vast majority of us are dealing with it, why can't you?

    The game isn't finished, BETA, etc etc.  Man I get tired of saying that.

    nivlac,

    No offense, but I have an opinion and I'm entitled to it...You need to deal with it...And if you get tired of saying something---then stop saying it...

    You're right, Ciri93, you do have a right to your opinion.

    However, if you had taken just a second to search the forums you would have seen 17 gazillion posts whining about the distances on the clubs.  Also, there are just as many responses.

    And yes, like nivlac, I am also tired of seeing the whining about the distances.  That's my opinion and I'm entitled to it... you need to deal with it.

    I feel the club length is OK,  now that you can play bethpage at your level tee, you can hit all the fairways unless you get a bad wind.  In terms of distance over accuracy, I acutal would like a little less accuracy with the driver.   I like the challenge of ending up in odd places off the drive and i end up on the fairlways over 90% of the time.  I hope the plan is to make some drivers that give you some more distance (250-260 avg) but are a lot more diffiuclt to keep on the fairway. Then you could cary 2 drivers. A longer wild driver and the shorter standard driver which can function like a pro hitting a 3wood off the tee.  This would make the game more fun in my opinion.

    I just wish we could NOT be foreced to play it in multiple player mode! I'd like to get back to playing the courses I can ACTUALLY play. I'm in pro mode and can't par some of the of the holes. ridiculous.
