It's kind of laughable to read some of the distances, isn't it? I'm less impressed with distances than I am with accuracy.  I've seen a lot of people hit 270 yd drives, 50 yds into the woods.

I don't mind being the short knocker here.

Driver- 265
3 wood-250
2 iron- 230
3 iron- 210
4 iron- 195
5 iron- 185
6 iron- 175
7 iron- 165
8 iron- 155
9 iron- 145
PW- 128
SW- 97
LW- 78

I wouldn't trust there distance to much, and distance doesn't = low scores. a 400 drive into the woods is useless. Driving the green and 4 putting is useless. A lot of yardages are incorrect, on the course anywhere between 10-30 yards. When i play in tournaments, they spray paint the correct yardage markers and it is no where near the 200,150,100 markers.  I would take there yardage with a grain of salt. being short on the fairway is better then being long in a hazard. distance is a small part of the game, consistency is the major part of the game.

Sounds about right. I've always had stiff shafts in my irons (even when I was a junior golfer and should have had regular shafts). Now that I'm getting older (43) I might go to regulars in my irons. I use blades and I think a solid shot will feel better and more pure with a lighter shaft, even if it won't go as straight.

i dont care really too much of yardage, because accuracy and the short game are what count when it comes to getting low scores. i have a driver that my 83 year old uncle gave to me when i was 13. it was his lucky driver, and ive never let go of it. ive maybe at the most hit it 225 maybe 240 if it rolled really well. my iron distance isnt so great either. with a 3 iron, i could probably hit it 160-165.

 

im not really strong for a 21 year old man. to me the most satisfying thing in golf is when you hit the ball just right, and its close to the hole. that shows alot more skill than bombing it like tiger woods.

How far do you hit your best 7-iron vs best driver

My 7 iron is 180 carry.

 

My best Driver is 250 carry.

Steep swing? Which leads to more distance with the irons and less distance with the driver? Seems like your driver should carry farther. Regular shaft with the 7 iron? Stiff shaft with the driver?   

post #444 of 560

Not sure if a steep swing will cause more distance. Delofting the irons will cause more distance. Steep swing, doesn't necessarily deloft an iron.  It can, but you can have a very steep swing and loose your wrist hinge early, causing a very high shot, and distance loss. So you got to watch out for what your looking for

post #445 of 560
A lot of bullshit floating around in here. I play regularly with some low single digits that are playing 260-270 drives (with rollout) for the most part. At the end of the day, we all know straight wins the battle... A battle we all battle.

9* R11 Driver - Avg 250 w/ rollout with good fairway shot. On a wide open hole, I can usually coax another 10-20 yards with a bigger turn and more wrist hinge somewhat accurately.
15* R11 3W - avg 230-240 off tee/220-225 off fairway
19* RBZ 3H - 205-215
24* Cleveland hibore XLS 4H- 185-195

R7 irons w/ stock R flex graphite shafts
5i - 175-180
6i - 165-170
7i - 155-160
8i - 140-150
9i - 130-135
PW 120-125

Vokey wedges - which I almost always play at 3/4 or less with a slightly open stance

48* - 105-110
56* - 70-80
60* - 50-60

Avg 6-10 GIR
Avg 10-12 FIR
Avg 1-3 penalty strokes per round
Avg 4-5 duffed/skulled shots per round
Rotating weaknesses in my game - inconsistent driver trajectory, chipping yips, and a bipolar putter
