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.
The calculator is mostly for entertainment, but I always take yardage gaps into consderation when putting together a set. I have some older setups where the driver is 25 yards short of my G10 or my Callaway, but for those drivers, I'd refer to the vintage section (the area with brassie and cleek).
There's more to that calculator than just 5-iron distance.You can tweak the numbers a bit by changing some of the personal data. Discrepancies may depend on your equipment. Other than my newer driver and 3-wood, all my equipment is pretty old school and I suspect the calculator is based on traditional lofts. Maybe you're not hitting your driver shorter. Maybe you're hitting your 5-iron really far?!?
