Average Distances... How far do you hit each club? and don't lie... - Page 101

post #1801 of 1882

Driver: 285
3 wood 255

2h 240
3i 220

4i 205
5i 195
6i 185
7i 175
8i 160
9i 150
Pw 135
Gw 120
Lw  100

 

Considering ditching my 3 wood and going with a 4 wedge lineup because there aren't many situations for me where the distance loss from hitting hybrid instead of 3 wood is detrimental and I think I'd benefit from having a bridge between my 52* gw and 58* lw (would go 52, 56, 60 if I switched)

I'm an inconsistent ball striker but I've recorded "rough" distances (more times than not) on the range. There have been times where I've hit the ball about 205 with my 6i but it's very rare.
Carry distance:
D:275-280
3W: 250
5w: 235
4i: 215
5i: 200
6i: 185
7i: 175 - this one I know is 100%. love the 7.
8i: 160
9i: 150
Pw: 135
52*: 120
56*: 100

So there is a lot to how some people hit there irons so far ( well how they claim to hit them so far). The loft on my irons are a degree stronger than most, mainly because I hit the ball very high so I wanted them one degree stronger to combat my super high ball flight. My 7 iron is my 170 yard (about 155m) club. I can get it to go up to around 175 if I need to, but 170 is just a solid swing. I don't really see a point into claiming you hit the ball farther than you do, your just going to hurt yourself and your game and your scores by leaving a lot of approach shots short.

That would be an interesting thread!  For me it would be like

Driver: 390yds

3-wood: 320

3driving iron: 265

4iron: 240

5iron: 225

6iron: 215

7iron: 200

8iron: 185

9iron: 170

PW: 160

52: 135

56: 120

60:100

 

Gosh! IF only I could do that every time... :beer:

Ground is HARD right now! Anyone noticing above normal distances? I'm seeing about 30+ yards of extra roll.

Yep, I hit a 3-hybrid about 30 yards further last night.

LW - when I skull the ball, 120 ;-) and I average a lot of skulls vs solid shots.

Putter- deadly from inside 1 foot 😉

It alsy varies from day to day. Some days I just can't seem to get distances and other days it goes like nothing.

 

Weird sport :)

Not down here.  I can back a driver up in the fairway right now.  Very soft due to a LOT of rain lately.  Courses play long for shorter hitters like me these days.   :-(

post #1812 of 1882

These are the 10 clubs I will be playing with tomorrow. I've thrown out the 3 wood, 4 wood, and 4 iron from my bag for the time being due to lack of consistency.

 

Driver - 220

3 hybrid - 210

5 iron - 190

6 iron - 175

7 iron - 165

8 iron - 155

9 iron - 140

PW - 125

SW - 85

That is with the Tour Edge Forged V-Blade iron set I have minus the 2-iron for all of you PC users I haven't been on the PC version in a while to change it...

I currently PLAY Tour Edge Exotics CNC Forged irons 3-PW... I haven't hit them on anything but a simulator yet... and we all know how inflated those numbers are... but I'll get back to you after the Ithaca City Golf Championship basically after Labor Day here in the U.S. I emphasized PLAY so WUTiger won't be offended

Male, age 63, 5'7" weight 200 lbs

Driver 5w 9w Callaway FT Optiforce
Hybrid 4, 5, 6 Callaway Razr XL Hybrids
7,8,9,PW AW. Power Play System Q Hybrid Irons
52' 60' F2 Wedges

DR 235
5w - 215
9w - 190
4H - 180
5H - 170
6H - 160
7I - 150
8I - 140
9i - 130
PW 120
AW -110
52 - 90
60 -70

I don't carry 3w because I get as much distance with 5w and hit the 5w higher which is what I needed. The 9w is giving me the distance I would expect from 7w so I didn't get one. The hybrid irons I built myself and are the best addition to my bag over the last ten years. My current Hndcp index is about 7.8 going down with the Callaway FT Optiforce Woods.

I have gained 10-15 yards in distance this year with my irons and have no explanation why. It has surprised me. I live near sea level and that hasn't changed.

If you think you drive it further than these guys consistantly you're high. The PGA avg is 288. You don't play 7200 yd courses every day. If you did you could just add about 10 to your handicap. http://www.cbssports.com/golf/stats/stats_leaders/PGA/2013/drivingDistance

Only when there are about 50 people watching you, and it's a really easy slightly uphill lie with only 15 yards to the pin. :-$
