Post it in yards, not how many times it orbits. Some people might not be able to approximate pi very well in their heads and even fewer will know the diameter of the moon.

I think median or more are more accurate data than average

3.1415926 is as much as I can ever remember off the top of my head.

 

I'll do the conversion for you guys once it lands...might be a while...

Yeah, I can post more off of a Google search too.

Well you would be cheating

Driver: 270-290
3W Loft(15.5°): 235-245
2 Hybrid Loft(17°): 215-220
MP-14's - I play old dinosaur irons from 1999, which are typically 2-3 degrees weaker than the newer clubs. I'll have to update when my MP-4's arrive next week, as the new PW will have a loft of 46 degrees.

3I Loft(23°): 205
4I Loft(26°): 195
5I Loft(29°): 185
6I Loft(32°): 175
7I Loft(36°): 165
8I Loft(40°): 155
9I Loft(45°): 140
PW Loft(50°): 130-135

GW Loft(52°): 120-125

SW Loft(56°): 110

LW Loft(60°): 100

 

MP-4 New irons: I figure I'll gain 5 yards for all clubs 3-8 and about 10 yards for 9 and PW.  Debating if I will switch GW, SW, LW lofts to 54/58/62 and use my old PW as a 50 degree gap wedge.

3I Loft(21°): ?
4I Loft(24°): ?
5I Loft(27°): ?
6I Loft(30°): ?
7I Loft(34°): ?
8I Loft(38°): ?
9I Loft(42°): ?
PW Loft(46°): ?

GW Loft(52°): 120-125

SW Loft(56°): 110

LW Loft(60°): 100

Driver -235 Cleveland xl hi bore 9^Draw
3W - 205 Cleveland Hl hi bore
5W - 195 Mac Gregor
4 Hybrid -175 Callaway xl Razr
5 Hybrid -165
6 Hybrid - 155
7 - 145
8 - 135
9 - 125
PW -115
AW-105
52. - 90
60 - 70. Sand also

7- AW are home made Q-system hybrid type
52&60 wedges are home made F2 system wedges.. I ground down the bounce and added weight due to the ground out metal. Wedges had far to much bounce.

I am 62 and don't have the flexibility due to physical problems. However my distances are very accurate. I hit a draw and usually consistent.

I typically play courses in the 6100-6300 yard range maintaining a 8.4 handicap index.
I typically play 80 rounds a year and regrip my clubs 2-3 times per year.

I play Titleist ProV1x golf balls and I play in western Washington at a golf club with pretty tight fairways and the greens run 10-11. I'm 16 and 5'8" and I have added yards recently because I have started to work out more. Hope this is all the info you need to choose whether you want to believe me or not :)
post #1234 of 1918
I'm also a 6.3 index

OK, Nick. What is the distance of one "roll" of a golf ball in inches? Is it 1.68 x 3.1415926535897935 = 5.278 inches or thereabouts?
post #1236 of 1918
Nike Machspeed Black 11.5 - 260~280
Nike VRS Hybrid 18 - 200
Nike VRS Hybrid 24 - 180
VR Pro Cavity 5 - 175
6 - 165
7-155
8-145
9-135
PW-120
52* - 100
60* - 70

Especially for 6 upwards these are carry plus roll distances. I tend to have a high flight on my irons
post #1237 of 1918

Driver:235 is I dont get all of it, 280 ripping it, 300 when all the planet aligns and God wills it (only a couple times and YES...it was a fluke) Average about 245

3 Wood: The 3 wood is of the devil and should not be in my bag. Never use it.

3 hybrid: 180-220

4 hybrid: pretty consistent 175

5 hybrid: 160-170

6 iron: 155-165

7 iron: 145-155

8 iron: 135-145

9 iron: 135 pretty consistent

PW: This one is an oddity...100 if I puppy dog it, 140 if I smash it

AW: not sure, just got it.

SW: 65-80

Putter: 376 yards exactly

post #1238 of 1918

60* - 56* -          0 - 100

52*         -          115

PW         -          135

9            -          145

8            -          155

7            -          165

6            -          175

5            -          185

4H          -          195 carry

3H          -          215 carry

3 W        -          Don't really know, but I'm assuming when I start hitting it I'll probably be around 230 carry

Driver     -          I'm thinking about 250 carry, but once I get this right I bet I can get it to average 260 - avg 108 ss

 

I reserve the right to change the above when ever I want to what ever I want! :)

There's this person I know who hits so far off the tee he marks his balls "behind U".

Driver titleist 907 d3 8* ust x stiff - 275-315 I tend to hit high hooks or slices that kill my average
3 wood Adams x stiff 15*- 270-295 off deck and off tee I hit way straighter and consistent than driver ( my only hole in one was on a flat hole par 4 297 with a 3wood, and it was on the coast so no elevation
3 hybrid 18* x100 true temper 250-260
4 hybrid x100- 235-240
5 iron x100 - 215-225
6 iron x100 - 205-215
7 iron x100 - 195-205
8 iron x100 - 180-185 ( I tend to swing a little slower comparatively than the lower irons)
9 iron x100 - 165-175
PW x100 - 150-160
SW x100- 135-145
LW s300- 110-120

Now to be fair PW is 45* and 5 iron is 23* so they are strong lofted. Also what I think isn't mentioned a lot is my clubs are 1" long +2* up because I'm 6'4 which obviously are going to increase swing speed with the longer shaft.

Cool! Another guy who hits all his clubs longer than the longest tour pros! But is an 18 handicap!

I want to believe this but really can't... Those numbers are just so huge. I mean maybe if he is an ex body builder who has Charles Barkley type putting yips and can't hit greens or fairways
