Average Distances... How far do you hit each club? and don't lie... - Page 67

post #1189 of 1774
D - 220-230 carry
16º - 200-210 carry
5i - 185
6i - 175
7i - 165
8i - 145
9i - 130
pw - 120
52 - 90
58 - 75

Pretty good range session today, fixed my week grip, started my takeaway on a flatter plane and really hit consistant shots with all clubs today. Actually flew a couple drives out to 250 carry mark when I really put a swing behind it... more aggresive hip punch forward. Just been working on smooth tempo, and hopefully the distance gaps will tighten up. Thinking I need something in the lines of a 4i, and a 13 or 14º 3w.

I'm getting old and I've never been a long hitter. But I do stay in the short stuff most of the time.

 

Driver - 220-240

3 wood - 210

3 hybrid - 190

4 hybrid - 175

6 iron - 160

7 iron - 150

8 iron - 135

9 iron - 125

PW - 110

UW - 90

SW - 75

This is my second post to this thread. It reflects the changes in distance I have due to the re-vamped swing I use because of two spine surgeries in 2012. I have to be very careful from now on. Essentially, I hit every club like it's a 75-yard pitch with my sand wedge.

 

Driver - 215 yards

7-iron - 132 yards

 

You can figure out the rest.

 

Fortunately, this new swing lets me hit the ball really straight, so if I play from the right set of tees, I can still score.

 

I got on the green on a 413-yard par 4 in two a few days ago with a drive and a 19-degree hybrid. The hybrid shot landed short of the green and rolled on. Both shots were dead straight.

post #1194 of 1774

Driver 250-270

3 Wood 240

3i Hybrid 210-220

4i 190

5i 180

6i 170

7i 160

8i 150

9i 140

PW 130

GW 115

SW 105

LW 80

 

I am in the same boat with Eric though, I never hit my SW or LW in full swing.  These are average with a good swing.  I am not counting bad swings in my head for this calculation

post #1195 of 1774
Somewhat updated distances from few months ago, these are not averages - these are clubs I would hit when given a certain carry:

Driver 240 carry, sometimes I'll go for 250 carry but not a hazard, bunker for example
3w 220 carry
3hy 200-205 carry
4i 195
5i 187
6i 179
7i 170
8i 161
9i 150
45 wedge 138
50 wedge 125
55 wedge 113
60 wedge 92

The shorter the club, the more accurate these distances are. And for the really long hitters posting...I play 60-70 rounds a year and I get out driven once in a while, maybe 2-3 times a season I meet someone that gets it out there as far as me or few yards longer.

I use gps and a range finder and it's amusing when I play with someone, they'll hit the best drive of the day, I measure it and always ask how far he thinks he hit. The lower the handicap, the closer they are usually, but average golfer thinks he hit it 280 total when it's actually somewhere around 250 (total with roll). 250 drive is way above average and most golfer don't realize that, 250 on most par 4s gives u a wedge or less into the green.

If I had to estimate my carry distances, they would be the following (PGA Tour averages in brackets):

 

Driver - 270 (275)

3-Wood - 245 (243)

3-Hybrid - 230 (225)

4i - 210 (203)

5i - 200 (194)

6i - 190 (183)

7i - 175 (172)

8i - 170 (160)

9i - 160 (148)

PW - 145 (136)

AW - 130 (??)

SW - 115 (??)

LW - 100 (??)

 

I guess I would classify myself as a long hitter then. :-O

That's aweome! Keep it going and good luck!

All distances in metres, I'll use google for the rough estimates in yards.

Driver: 250 carry (275)
3Wood: 220-230 carry (245)
3I: 205 (225)
4I: 195 (215)
5I: 180 (195)
6I: 170 (185)
7I: 155 (170)
8I: 140 (155)
9I: 135 (147)
PW: 120 (130)
52*: 105 (115)
56*: 90 (100)
60*: 80 (87)

Read your golfing input. Was helpful. Thanks.

post #1201 of 1774

Driver - 260-275 average

3h - 215-220

4i - 195-200

5i - 185-190

6i - 175-180

7i - 165-170

8i - 155-160

9i - 145 - 150

pw - 130-140

sw 54 degree - 100-120 really depending on the scenario

sw 56 degree - usually about 105

lw 60 degree - 85 

 

all of these from good lies in the fairway. my driver is by far my worst club. very inaccurate so I don't really know how far I hit it (straight) because I only really do it once or twice per round. Sometimes I can hit it more than 300 yards sometimes I hit it 260

post #1202 of 1774

Driver 270-280 most of the time. I was 3' short of driving a 291 yard par 4 the other day. My long drive record is 320something.

7 iron 150

8 iron 140

PW120ish?

50º 100-110

56º 50ish.

 

I almost never hit the others, so I don't really know them.

Yardages are measured to the center of the green.  Depending on the depth of the green, you probably hit that drive somewhere in the 260ish range.....

 

Just sayin'.   ;-)
