For golf it depends on the tees you play from you can always shoot a better score. Hell a 200 yard drive from the right tees and you can shoot 7 under.
Golf is about keeping the ball in play with high percentages. Don't fall in the long hitters trap of trying to play it safe and hit 5 iron of the tee instead develop a major league baseball pitcher mentality to golf it's what you need to do. With your distances you have the ability to shoot 10 under par,but what you need to do say it's a 375 yard par 4 with little trouble long and just some rough but a fairly big green. Go ahead and tee up the big stick and hit what I call...
It's not about speed it's about ball flight and roll. With a medium draw a 100 mph swing will carry about 255 yards and roll up to 35 yards. A 105 mph swing with the same draw will go 260 carry averaging 275 yards to 300 every time. If you hit a high ball or fade it could be 240 or less it's pretty drastic. Pros swing 118 mph and can hit a fade 275 carry and like the control if you like 235 carry and and enjoy a fade with control by all means play from the white tees.
Off set and low cg means high and left just about every time unless you open the face and play the ball back in your stance. The only thing that makes these kinda irons good is their luanchability and forgiveness.
Iv'e just walked on a few times to play 4 holes or so before dark no sense in paying full price to walk 4 holes.
With the driver tour pros hit high draws and high fades and rarely low shots. The reason for this is their club head speed is in the 118 range and more so carry is better to fly bunkers cut corners or just miss the fairway by a few yards. A simple set up change and they can hit it low by leveling out their path I assume they do this with the irons and into the wind on tee shots. You would have to be a caddy to know but I bet they hit 80% high shots and move the ball a...
I would say loft and clubhead speed has the most to do with it because a golf ball is so light and only compresses so much meaning a 10 pound weight plate at 9 deg loft traveling at 130 mph hitting a golf ball dead on probably wouldn't go much farther than a thin titanium clubhead going 130 mph based on the ball itself.
Male tour players never hit down on the ball with their driver that's a terrible technique. Look at the long drive pro's they use a 5 deg driver and hit the ball on the absolute upswing as possible. Lady pro's and amateurs alike would benefit with lower loft because of less spin and more roll all while playing reg flex and lighter shafts. Pga pro's use xx flex and 9-10 loft because at their 118 mph swing speed it's a great mixture of pure carry with some roll and more...
If your skilled the advantages are immense on most flattish golf courses. X amount of speed = a certain amount of carry and this is why tour pros use a 10 deg at 118 mph and carry the ball a ton and land it soft. For a 65 year old swinging 86 mph who is highly skilled using 5 deg driver will result in a bullet ball with tons or roll and at times 30 yards farther than a 9 degree driver. Now your shaft should still be reg or senior flex and not to heavy either.
