Once.

I am really thinking about getting a 4 wood for versatility off the tee, was hoping a good one would go on sale soon.

I have no need for one. My 3 wood is good for 225-260 depending on how I play it, and my 2i hybrid is good for 205-220, so I really don't have a gap there.

post #978 of 1774

I don't have a 3 wood either, just driver to 4i. So I have a decent sized distance gap. *done with off topic stuff, my bad*

post #979 of 1774

Every time I look at a thread like this I think to myself, "self a lot of people on this site seem to have 110-115 MPH swing speed". 

 

Looking at these yardages makes me wonder if a lot of you guys say man that shot must have been playing longer than the yardage said a lot on the course.

Actually, I look at my gps app on my phone because I don't trust the markings anymore. I learned my lesson about assuming markings are correct.That being said I've pulled my 9i for a 155 yd center green shot *via gps* and flew it to back edge with a bounce off. I've no clue what my actual swing speed is, but hoping that they'll have a way to measure it at the outing this weekend.

post #981 of 1774
Yeah! I think the yard markers on my course cannot be trusted, I also tried a phone GPS and one of them is way out! Sometimes up to 25 yards! ....I discovered as i watched my ball land past a green and bounce into the horizon!

Golly Gee, I would not carry a driver if I could hit a 3W like that. a3_biggrin.gif

 

These are carry distances.  The PW, GW, SW have added swing weight.  

Driver: - 240-250

3Wood - 215-220

3(utility) - 195(not quite sure yet)

4 iron - 180

5 iron - 170

6 iron - 163ish

7 iron - 155

8 iron - 145

9 iron - 135

pw     - 120

50     - 105

56     -  90

It seems the lower handicappers have much greater distance.  Probably consistent distance as well.  My game has improved this summer (24 to 12) as my distance has improved.

 

Driver --  250-275max

3W --  220-245 max

3h -- 200-210

3i -- never use it, except for low punch out of trees

4i -- 200-210, use hybrid instead

5i -- 190

6i -- never use it, mental block, choke down on 5

7i -- 160-170

8i -- 145-155

9i -- 130-140

PW -- 120-135, no control

56 -- 100

60 -- 65

 

I can only give a range because I don't consistently hit a certain distance.  Try to control distance gaps with choking down and shorter swings with limited success.

Nothing against the higher-handicappers who play the muni courses, but they probably aren't seeing yardages on the course that are very accurate.   I don't have/use a range-finder though, because I just try to focus on enjoying the game, and part of the "challenge" if you will,  is determining what club to play from whatever position/lie/elevation etc. I am, using whatever the course lists the yardage as, or what my eyes tell me the distance is.

I agree with this and have the same trouble on my course.  The other day I was inside the 150 marker by 15 yards and the guy with the range finder said it was 157 out.  No wonder I was hitting that shot short.  I don't have the app, but I go on Google earth and measure with its device and am surprised at how close or long some of the distances I hit from are.  I am trying to memorize some of the positions I am usually in and trust the Google yardage.  Hard to gauge a shot when you don't have a reliable yardage to use.

Those are redundant statements.  In order to reach longer distances--especially for an average--you need to consistently get that swing speed/smash factor/launch angle, etc.  It's not as simple as being able to swing hard translating into long distances.

Re: the above post.

 

Lower handicaps have better swing mechanics, which create a faster swing speed = further distance.

This has all been charted thanks to my Garmin S3. And yes I do own this many clubs and have used them all this year. I'm giving you the average throwing out the distances that I've mishit, and the ones that I absolutely caught pure and flew a much greater distance. I use a 25 yard range when I throw out short or long shots. I also don't record the distances when I'm playing into or with a strong wind. 

I pretty much only decided on my bag set up for the remainder of the season 3 rounds ago. I'm going with the 15/19 degree FW, the 21 degree hybrid, 5I-PW, 50, 55, 60 degree wedges. 

 

D: 247.3 (119 Swings)

 

13 degree Tour Spoon: 238.6 (12 swings)

15 degree 3 wood: 238.5 (24 swings)

17 degree 4 wood: 231.0 (7 swings)

19 degree 5 wood: 219.5 (14 swings)

 

18.5 degree hybrid: 209.8 (5 swings)

21   degree hybrid:  207.5 (18 swings)

21.5 degree hybrid: 196.6 (7 swings)

 

3I: 212.9 (12 swings)

4I: 194.7 (15 swings)

5I: 185.4 (16 swings)

6I: 174.4 (12 swings)

7I: 165.8 (20 swings)

8I: 156.2 (32 swings)

9I: 141.4 (24 swings)
