How far do you hit your clubs?

560 posts in this topic

I am curious to see how far everyone hits their clubs on a normal full swing.

Here is my breakdown:

Driver: 250
3 Wood: 225
19* Hybrid: 200
4: 190
5: 180
6: 170
7: 160
8: 150
9: 140
P: 130
56*: 105
60*: 75

Those are actually very similiar to my distances. I'd say that with a really solid drive I am closer to the ~280 mark, and a solid 3-wood closer to 240, but my irons are the same as yours. My wedges are kind of messed up but I rarely take full swings with them anyway so honestly I am not sure. My irons are old and extremely outdated so I would probably gain some good yardage if I could afford some new ones.

The only reasons you will hit newer irons further is either newer clubs will have lower lofts than your older irons (ie: a current PW usually has a degree from 46-48 and old clubs usually have a PW at around 49-50 degrees of loft) or you just can't hit your old clubs solid.

My new irons just came in last Friday, so I've gone to the range a few times over the past two or three days for the sole purpose of getting these numbers. These are assuming I get a decent shot on the ball, which is easier said than done for me at this point :p

About the same for me, perhaps youre 4 or 5 yards longer with the irons. I dont carry a SW anymore so im about 105 in that hole with the 52.

Haven't really checked all of the distances but these are the clubs I use at these distances and I'm usually pin-high. Going to the golf clinics every wednesday, we are working on exact distances for each club. I'll re-do my distances if any of these are really off.

???? Tiger can easily carry it 300 yards. I don't know where you got those distances from.

Also delofting is natural in a sense. The degree of the club is measured with the shaft even with the club head, but when you hit a ball your hands lead out in front of the club head which then causes the club to have less than the number of degrees it says it has.

That's because Tiger swings at about 80% on most of his iron shots for control. If he wanted he could hit a 6 iron 220 yards. Most Amaturs swing almost nearly as hard as they can.

These are the yardages I use as a baseline (sea level, summer heat), and I add or subtract off them given the conditions:

Driver - 300
15 hybrid - ?? (came in the mail on Friday)
3 iron - 225
4 iron - 210
5 iron - 195
6 iron - 185
7 iron - 175
8 iron - 165
9 iron - 150
PW - 140
50 - 120 (3/4 swing)
54 - 105 (3/4 swing)
60 - never swing full, only use around the green or from 40 yards and in
Putter - in the hole

    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      You use the S&D option of Rule 28 at any time you want. It doesn't matter if you can't see it, can't identify it or have it staring you in the face with your ID in dayglo pink. To use either of the other options you have to be able to identify it.
    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
