For me it's 170-175..... sometimes shorter, sometimes longer.  But when this is distance I'm looking at, that's the club I'm pulling.

175-ish

I average about 190 with the 5i. It is also one of my favourite clubs. I dunno why, I just have a lot of confidence with it. The first hole at one of my home courses is a par 5, and leaves me with 200 yards to the center of the green on my second shot as long as my drive is straight. Most people lay up because there is a deep ravine which you have to carry 160 yards of that. Almost every time I make that shot, its a nice baby fade to front if the green. Love it.

175-180 carry distance.  25 yards left OR right is the killer rightnowz1_censored.gif

Rams avator AND a (team?) roper?  Why does it seem possible I might you?!

My 5i is my 20-175 club......

 

Lately it's been 20 more than 175 so I've put a couple of hybrids back in the bag and taken the 4-5 irons out. They work great for a while and then I develop a new flaw.

When I was 30, I was hitting my 5 iron about 150-155 yards. Now that I am old and far less flexible, I hit a 5 iron 170-175. a1_smile.gif

I tend to pull hook my 5, 4 and 3 irons, when I get good contact. My 5 is anywhere from 120 to 175, and my 6 is about 160. So, I also use my hybrids for 175 to 200 yard distances. I have a much tamer and lower exertion swing now, so it will probably take lots of practice to get the timing and accuracy down before using long irons again.

185-190

a good hit will carry that far and not go much more, a bad hit will tend to land short of that, but skip forward to still about that.......

post #193 of 211

192 - 202 yards, i have hit it further but consistently around that.

post #194 of 211

Around 165-175 of a tee, from the deck its really hit and miss for me.

post #195 of 211

From the fairway 160 carry with some roll.

post #196 of 211

Typically 190-200 yards. Not that much roll, 2-3 yards average.

post #197 of 211

Average 5i distance is between 155-165 yards.

Y'know, I've visited this thread a few times & read the replies...and I haven't replied. Until now. Here's my reply -

 

Who cares?

 

Now, before I get piled on - "This is a golf forum! We talk about this kind of stuff!' - lemme just say, this is one of the most irrelevant topics I've come across. I mean, why not ask how far I hit, say, a four iron? Or six iron? Why don't you ask me what I shot today?

 

Oh wait. We got a thread for that. 

 

Okay. Here's my distances -

 

Driver: 240

3W: 220

3h: 200

7W: 180

5i: 170 (there's your answer, heh)

6i: 160

7i: 150

8i: 140

9i: 130

PW: 120

GW: 100

SW: 80
