The progression of yards lost by decade seems pretty accurate based on my own experiences.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

How about those of us who are in their mid 70's ? I guess they figure by then, it's not worth calculating. Maybe we should be glad just to looking down at our divots, rather than up at them.

Agree with you Nick that those numbers seem fairly correct - unfortunately !

I thought age was just a number.

found these usga #'s during C19 while trying to see how I rank in driving distance(not accuracy) among the rest of the average golfing world. Golf humility. The nearly 25 year gap is whats interesting, especially if you were playing back then.

2019 usga avg male driver distance report: 216yds
Over 20 hcap's avg: 200yds
Under 6 hcap's avg: 239yds

1995 usga avg male driver distance report: 200yds
Over 20 hcap's avg: 176yds
Under 6 hcap's avg: 210yds

*think I was using Cougar metal woods in '95

Males are NEVER as long as they say they are. I saw a spot on Golf channel years ago where they asked people how far they hit it then they measured the drive. Men were always WAY off, some saying “oh yeah I got that one it’s gotta be 290 at the least!” Then when it measured out at 230 . . . Lol! Like with everything those that talk about it rarely actually do it. Ego baby, ego. Women usually were within 10 yards of what they thought.

HAHAHAHAAH

Coming from a fitter, rarely are guys accurate with what they think they hit vs what they really hit it.

Always the "is this machine accurate"?

Golf business, just selling dreams.

Yeah, I recently went for a fitting to update my driver- around three months ago. I went in knowing that I do not hit the ball near 250 anymore, but my head told me i could still get to 245. I was dead wrong. My best was at 235 on the monitor. Pretty sad day for me to know it.

So with a little work on the game, and some fitness regimen, it has gone better, but not much. Getting closer to 65.. is reality.

QUOTED  Always the "is this machine accurate"?

Is'nt it the f7 key that adds 15 yards to the machine results on the retailers trackman?

When the customer hits his old equipment vs the new stuff; all the salesperson does is make the adjustment?!!
Oh wow that new driver really helps you...

It's just fun!
