Golf club distance calculator

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

This thing almost hits my numbers spot on.  Does anybody else have this experience?

Pretty close. A little short on the 8-PW, but I tend to get a little agressive with those, and am more inclined to 'back off' a long iron more for control. But still, pretty close.

Really spot on for me.

Pretty much spot on for me

Pretty much right on spot with me, depends on weather, but yes.

No more accurate for me than just assuming about 10 yards per club (it "calculated" 13 yards IIRC). It over-estimated my driver pretty substantially. Cute.

Close enough for government work...short irons a hair short...woods estimated long

Turned out to be really close for me

Seems to be the case for me as well.  Woods are about 15 yards longer, irons about half a club short.

Pretty darned close except for the sand wedge is about 10-15 yards long for me (it would be close for a GW though).

Close for me except for driver. I'm about 10 yards shorter than stated.

I wondered about this.  It said my driver distance was 283 and my PW was 112 which is just a touch short.  I never really hit my wedges very far.  120 is a pretty long PW for me.  I still play the 48 degree variety, if it's changed..  Regardless, I've never been able to hit my wedges 135-145 like a lot of pros.  I just can't seem to get myself to swing hard with a wedge and I've never felt like it was justifiable to try....  I was a little surprised to see that a 280 drive is what someone who hits a wedge 115 or so would be expected to hit.

hmm, the only number that was pretty spot on was the original 5 Iron distance. Driver end too long, short irons too short in general. I play a lot by feel anyway and can hit a club with a spread of 20-25 yds depending on the shot I want; draw, fade, knockdown, etc...

Part of that seems common enough (hitting the driver shorter and the long irons longer), but it makes me question the accuracy of the information people are providing regarding their true stock 5-iron distance, their body type, skill level, and approach to the game.

 

What I get from this thread is that, compared to me at least, people tend to use stronger lofts in their irons (or really go after those wedges) and could probably use a driver fitting.

Almost perfect for me 6i-Driver, a little short 7i-LW

I see it about the same as you.  About 20 yards long on the driver and 15 on the 3W.  Most of the irons were in the ball park.

Why do you say "could probably use a driver fitting"? The driver was a bit long, long irons were spot on, and short irons were short for me. I guess it depends on a person's definition of "average." I'm 6'0, 190lbs, is that average height/weight? I play to a 15; is that sometimes erratic or average? I'm hoping you have good news for me in that a driver fitting will add 25-35 yards to my drives.

Pretty close for me except the wedges are a little long
