I think people who have reached or overdriven a 400' hole will say they can throw 400. However the hole may have been downhill, wind aided or just a fluke throw.
The distance a person can throw to me is the distance a person can throw on a level open field without significant wind present.
And of course there's often a huge difference between all out distance and on the course distance. Some people only have 350 on the course, but allow them to do a 360spin on an open field and they may show you 425 or better.
I'd say the average golfer throws between 260-325. Tourney players average 300-380. Top pros average 420-460. And there are probably about 7-12 individuals in the world who can consistently throw over 500 without serious tailwind.
