How far do you hit your clubs? - Page 26

post #451 of 560

With my last set of 09 Burners, I thought I was a pro.  I could swing like a gorilla and carry a wedge 135-140 pretty consistently.  Of course no one told me the wedge wasn't actually a wedge.  Now I've got Nike VR Pro irons and my carry distances are:

 

 

Driver  - been a long time since i could hit it properly, not sure

5wood - 210

4 iron - 190

5 iron - 180

6 iron - 170

7 iron - 160

8 iron - 150

9 iron - 140

PW - 120

GW(52) - 105

SW(56) - 90

LW(60) - 75

Average distances (yards) with a controlled swing and decent contact - 

 

Driver: 210 (work in progress)

3 Wood: 210

5 Wood: 190

4 Hybrid: 180

5 Iron: 160

6 Iron: 150

7 Iron: 140

8 Iron: 130

9 Iron: 120

PW: 110

GW: 100

LW: ?

 

I'm not (too) embarrassed or bothered of my lack of distance, but I think I can and should learn to get another 10-20 from my driver. Also, there's a gap of 20 yards between my 4 hybrid and my 5 iron. This can cause problems on a couple of the holes I play. Don't know whether to fill in the gap with 5 hybrid or try to get a bit more distance from my irons. I can easily add another 10 yards on each iron if I hit with a flatter trajectory but I prefer the higher shots. Hell, at my skill level I'm just happy that my distances are somewhat predictable.

This is where I'm at currently (RBZ woods, BurnerPlus irons) but I am looking at upgrading my irons to the AP1's. Yesterday I was hitting the vokey 58* 100 yds and the ap1 6i nearly 170 yds (when hit well). Lighter/shorter shafts....so obviously I'm gonna have to re-gap from the ground up.

Driver - 220-240
3W - 200-220
5W- 200-210
5H - 185
5i - 170
6i - 160
7i - 150
8i - 140
9i - 130
PW - 120
AW - 90-110
SW - 50-75
LW - 40-60
post #455 of 560

Driver - 280-300

3-Wood - 260-270

3-Hybrid - 240-250

4i - 210-220

5i - 200-210

6i - 190-195

7i - 175-180

8i - 165-170

9i - 160-165

PW - 150-155

AW - 140

(Too big of a gap in between these clubs)

56 - 110

60 - 95

 

I also play with somebody who is about 10 yards longer than me for every iron, and hits his driver at least 330 consistently. Definitely the longest player I've ever played with. 

post #456 of 560

Driver- TaylorMade R11S- 280-290

Iron- Nike VRS+

4i- 230

5i-220

6i- 205

7i-190

8i- 180

9i- 170

Wedges- Titliest Vokey SM4

PW(47)-155

(54)- 140

(58)- 120

post #457 of 560
First of all: I'd love to lose length to gain aim :)

Driver: ~265 yards
4w: ~235 yards
1i: ~230 yards (off the tee only)
3i: ~210 yards
4i: ~195 yards
5i: ~185 yards
6i: ~174 yards
7i: ~161 yards
8i: ~148 yards
9i: ~135 yards
W (48*): 120 yards
SW (56*): 90 yards
LW (60*): 75 yards

And I'm considered a long(ish) hitter. :)

Also: I have a very old driver, if I swing all out it'll go further (295 yards isn't an exception), but I lose a lot of fairways in regulation then.
post #458 of 560

Driver - Don't own

3 Wood - ATM about 230 yards to the right of my target

3 I - 220

4 I - 200/205

5 I - 190

6 I - 180/185

7 I - 170

8 I - 160

9 I - 150/155

PW - 120/130

Putter - 1/2 putts.

post #459 of 560

Driver - So far that you wouldn't want your wife to see me hit it.

3+ Wood - You'd get tired and have to sit down while walking to my ball.

1 Iron - Wooden tees catch fire like match heads even when I lay off.

2 Iron - If you look at the ground after I hit, you can find the little plastic letters and numbers from the ball.

3 Iron - Used this when I hit my 182nd hole in one yesterday, par 6, 783 yards, back pin, head wind screaming like a flaming eagle.

4 Iron - I swung this and a guy eating lunch shit himself.

5 Iron - Not very far (340-360) because I removed the grip and shaft so I can just swing the club head in my palm.

6 Iron - I once swung hard and hit a ball back in time.

7 Iron - If the zombie apocalypse broke out, all I'd need is a 7 iron and a bucket of balls - BOOM HEAD SHOT.

8 Iron - I can hit it on the green of any local course - from the pavement of my driveway.

9 Iron - Had my 9 iron bent to 180* so I could play left and right handed at the same time.

PW - 289, every single time. 2-8-9.

GW - 279, every single time, 2-7-9

SW - I swing in the trap and diamonds come flying out

84* - 150 with 1/10th swing (all I every need)

Putter - I can beat you with only my putter in my bag (and a telescoping ball retriever so we can fetch your mishits).

Umbrella - 120 Yards.

 

Basically, on the par 3's, I'm 84*, maybe putter.  Par 4's, 7 Iron, Putter,  Par 5's, 5 Iron, umbrella, putter.

 

I'd go on the tour but I'm too busy posting my numbers on the internet to play.

^^^ one of the funniest posts I've ever read on here.

LMAO! I shit myself reading this. Too funny! Thanks for the laugh..........
post #462 of 560

Not sure if people are listing averages or their best shot ever, these are my averages.

 

Driver 190  

5W    180  

3W    180  

6i       150 

7i       140 

8i       130 

9i       115  

PW    105  

GW    don't know

SW    1/2 distance I needed to get out bunker

 

I didn't realize (aside from driver) that I was such a slouch on distance.  I blame my clubs a little they aren't great but I suppose my swing needs some work too.

We're about the same. The way I figure, it is what it is and lying about it isn't going change it. All I can do is try to improve. I like your SW distance.

post #464 of 560

Thanks for your honesty, now I feel better.  I too and not a big distance hitter.  I just concentrate on my "old mans golf" method of getting it straight down the fairway and staying out of trouble.

 

Driver                225

Hybrid 3 18deg  190

Hybrid 4 21deg  180

5 I                    165

6 I                    155

7 I                    145

8 I                    135

9 I                    125

PW                  115

Gap 52             100

Sand 56             75

Lob 60               50

Wedges are so variable you can get all kinds of distances  when you de-loft them.

 

Hit them straight and seldom!

post #465 of 560

Everyone has it all messed up.

 

You are supposed to be able to lie in this thread, just not the other. Quite a few have confused the two.
