Average Distances... How far do you hit each club? and don't lie... - Page 82

post #1459 of 1826
See no reason to lie...

Driver - 245
3W - X
5W - 215
4H - 195
5H - 185
6H - 175
7i - 160
8i - 145+
9i - 135+
PW - 125
AW - 115
SW - 100+
58* - 90
61* - 75
64* - 60

I'm not spot on with those distances. I suffer from slightly heavy shots and perfect wrist releases that can widen the range of those values. But those are the distances I use when any of those clubs are in my bag.

You must have picked up a new set of clubs.  Looks like you've picked up a little distance over the old set.....

6 Iron = 26*      = 150-170 yds
5 Iron = 23*      = 160-180 yds
4 Iron = 20*      = 170-190 yds (the 4 iron might be replaced with another utility club, like a chipper/putter, LW, etc, because I now am using the 4 hybrid)
4Hybrid = 22*   = 170-190 yds
5 Wood = 19*   = 180-200 yds
3 Wood = 15*   = 190-220 yds

This is called "Distance police".  I should copyright that probably. ;)

I got caught too. He posted a Gotcha later.

 

I think it's an April fool's joke a month too early.;-)

Driver: 230-250

3-wood: 200-215

3-hybrid: 180-190

4-iron: 165-175

5-iron:: 155-165

6-iron: 145-155

7-iron: 135-145

8-iron: 125-135

9-iron: 115-125

PW: 105-115

AW: 85-100

SW: 75-85*

LW: 65-75

 

I used to hit it further, but with taking lessons, I am trying to be a lot more consistent, I've sacrificed a little distance. My 7-iron used to go about 180 if I hit it straight, but that was a big "if."

 

I just bought the SW in the offseason, so I am just guessing on the distance right now. Will get a better idea once I get to use it.

Yes, it's April 1st a little early. You can't blame a person wishing spring was already here, especially after the winter we had. Yes, it's just a bunch of bs, and partly because I feel people sometimes inflate their distances. Just having a little fun. My drives are somewhere around 225.

With lessons, you will get your distance back, and more. :)

Yeah, I've gotten a little back. Right after I got lessons, my distance for my 7-iron dropped to about 120, but just by playing more and more, it has started to get farther. Hopefully by the end of this summer I will be back to where I was, but with more consistency and lower scores. ;)

With your handicap, usually problem is with the contact, or consistent contact.  Once you develop a solid swing, you will start hitting it in the middle more often and distance will come.

Yeah, I'm not trying to worry about the loss of distance at all. I'm just trying to get a consistent swing down. And I think my handicap has dropped some since then. Early in December, I played alternate ball with some coworkers and my ball striking was pretty dead on for the most part. Dropped a couple wedges within 2 feet of the hole which made me really excited.

What loft adjustments did you make?  Gotten to play with it yet?  Hard to adjust?

 

I don't have the cash for a new set right now (or even a newer used set nicer than my current irons), and I love my 3i and also having a club between the 3w and 3i, so I don't want to add a wedge, but have too big a gap between PW (46˚) and SW (54˚).  Been thinking for a while about going in and getting my 3i and 4i bent 1˚ weaker and 5i-PW bent 2˚ weaker.  That would give me a little bigger gap between 2h and 3i and less gap between PW and SW.
