At some point, I'll pull out the gps and charts or rent some time with a Trackman fitter and have the numbers game figured out...
Huh? WTF does any of this mean? So, exactly how far do you hit your clubs?

Sounds like about 2-3 clubs past the benchmark for being called a liar at thesandtrap.com.

It depends on a lot of things.

 

I'm 6ft 4in and 13st and fairly athletic. I would like to hit the ball a lot further but there is often a big crosswind on the course I play. If the wind is behind I can drive as much as 330 and if it is against 185. It can be brutal. But always I am striking the ball really well and the rest is down to God! I am envious of folk who play in hot climates where fairways have dried out and there is 100 yards roll. Don't think I get any where I play. With the irons I play blades and maybe lose 15 yards due to traditional lofts, lack of forgiveness etc. I'm off 7 and there is one guy off 2 at my club and he can out drive me by 50 yards. I've played with a dozen players from 10-28hc who almost never out-drive me. I take that as a fair reflection on the fact that Handicap and Av Drive Distance are related.

 

For all the contributors in this thread I'd venture that less than 10 can actually average the distances claimed. I'm not trying to take anyone down a peg or two. It's just whenever people are asked to put down their average- they put down their best.

I hit my driver around 280-285 but much like others... Where I live is very windy. I live on an Island so you can guess how the wind and ocean breeze can affect a shot. I hit my 7-iron between 175-180 if that helps.

Since switching to my Mizuno irons, I have lost almost an entire club length off irons but I hit it much higher and more controlled. So now i'm probably at this:

 

 

Driver: 270-280

3 Wood: ugh dont ask

5 Wood: 240-250 can absolutely crush it for some reason

3 Hybrid: 210-220

4 Iron: 195

5 Iron: 185

6 Iron: 175

7 Iron: 165

8 Iron: 155

9 Iron: 145

PW: 135

GW: 115

SW: 100

I bet the Mizunos are more "traditionally" lofted and your new 9 iron loft is your old pitching wedge's loft.
