Hi, please see the following conversation between two fellow golfers which I made up.

A: Hi, how are you getting on with your practice?
B: Well, I'm trying very hard to increase my ________________.

1. distance
2. driving distance
3. driver distance
4. flying distance
5. flight distance


I've seen all these five expressions when I googled. Which of these are usually used in your country? #4 and #5 seem wrong to me.

(I admit I didn't spend much time checking the Google search results, because asking here is much quicker, and the answers here are much more reliable.)

    No. 2 sounds the best of the lot but I think a more natural word would be just "drive" or perhaps "to drive longer".

    Thanks Barque. Didn't know that "increase my drive" and "to drive longer" are more natural expressions. Good to know. :thumbsup:
