So the Open Championship encouraged me to haul my clubs to the driving range at Ballyearly today. I parted with £4.50 to get a hold of a large bucket of balls and I proceeded to spray them all over the range.
In fact, I sprayed the ball in almost every direction but rarely the one I intended. Not only would the ball fail to go in a straight line, it also failed to go very far.
Driver - 160 yards
3 wood - 160 yards
5 wood - 160 yards
3 iron - 160 yards
5 iron - 140 yards
9 iron - 110 yards
Not very impressive. I'm thinking that a round of golf will be limited to a 9 iron, 5 iron, wedge and putter. Not worth my while taking anything else!
