I'd say what was more unusual would be that there were no 14 or 15 year olds at the camp that couldn't out drive him? No offense to your son of course. 14 and 15 year olds boys should have gone through a fairly significant growth spurt or developmental change thanks to puberty. So they should be physically taller and "stronger" at that point. Having said all that, good for your son to kicking their a**es

      As posted above, the winner of the 9 year old age division in the biggest junior golf "skills competition" in North America hit it 183, so I would say 200 is fairly unusual for a 9 year old, regardless of hockey experience.

        Do you hate on all brands you canít afford as hard? Seems to me like you take every chance you get to take a dig at pxgs, I think deep down you want a set but you donít have the coin lol

        pretty happy with mine, broke par for the first time a couple of days ago hitting 15/18 greens in reg, canít say I regret the purchase one bit

          What I meant by my comment was that it was more unusual that he beat out the 14 and 15 year olds too. The fact that he hit it 200 yards has too many variables that I'm not taken account for. Such as wind direction? Was it on a range or a down hill hole at a course? What was the temp like? You can compare it to drive chip and putt but what was the wind doing that day? Was it playing into the kids faces at the masters? So you can't just straight up compare those two based on age alone.

          Is it normal for a 9 year old to hit it 200, no, it's fantastic. I'm not diminishing the OPs sons accomplishment I'm simply stating that on the scale of it be unusual I'd say beating out kids 6 years older is pretty "unusual"

              200 yards at that age is huge, top 1% I would guess.

                Where did that come from?

                Congrats on the sub par round.

                  Just let him have fun in golf and hockey. Don't push it. He is not going pro in either.

                    My 9 year old daughter hits her driver avg about 135 but can get it out there 150 -170 depending on conditions. She was measured at 162 in the Drive Chip and Putt qualifier in Buffalo and wasn't the longest.

                      My son hit a drive 202 yesterday- he just turned 12 a couple of months ago. We have had him the PGAís Drive Chip Putt competition since he was 9. Some of those kids could hit it long....

                        Being dead serious, for the OP how far does your son hit his 7 iron?
                        Does he have decent gaps between clubs or is the driver distance an anomaly?
