What is your swing speed and carry?

post #1 of 167
Thread Starter 
What is your average and max swing speed? What flex shaft do you use? I have been training hard for the past year and my swing speed increased dramatically.

Average ~118
Max ~125
X-stiff Proforce V2/ 907 D2 8.5*

I average about 275 carry. My favorite though is walking out to the 100yd marker on a 400ish yd hole and seeing your ball mark next to the ball

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

average is between 110 and 115 mph. that puts my carry in the 250-260 range. i'll occasionally bust one a little further, but not often. i'm thinking more about control on the tee box - the distance takes care of itself. i've got an Aldila Spec Grid 67 in an x-stiff in my driver. I haven't trained at all - the club head speed has always been there. i just work to keep in the fairway. :)

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

I average about 100 and max out about 105. If I try really hard I can get 110. I carry about 230, and roll out to 250, on average. I have a stiff flex in my driver and 5 wood, but a regular in the 3 (too poor to get it re-shafted).

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

My driver swing speed is around 107 to 112 on average. I hit a stiff flex, 9.5 degree flex, OEM TM fujikura SuperQuad shaft. I dont like to swing harder or softer than that as I will get off track. My average carry plus roll is on average 270 to 280. Just today I busted two of my drives back to back to the 300 yard ranges. Doesn't happen very often, bout once per round or so, but the fact there was no wind, it made my day. Still gotta work on the "keeping it in the fairway" more often though.

My SS is about 105, with 245-250 of carry. I can crank it up to 115 when need be and get it about 275.

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

Im more of a feel player but I average around 110mph and about a 260 yard carry. When I really go at it it measures around 120mph with around a 280 carry. (Tip the 110mph swing goes much straighter). With rill I average around 280 or so off the tee.

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

Funny how everyone is 100+ mph and 250+ yards on a message board...

Well, I'm a 3.x index and I swing about 108 with about 245-250 carry, and that's accurate. I've measured on days when my ball embeds or just pops out of its pitch mark.

Besides, if you care enough about golf to join a forum, you're not the average duffer who hits the ball 180 yards off the tee. You've probably been somewhat fitted or whatever, and the odds are you are a better than average golfer.

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

I can get my swing speed up over 120 if I swing out of my shoes. Normal is between 110-115 and I carry it about 260-270, however I hit it relatively low and usually roll out a lot.

Sorry, my OP came off as overly-cynical. I am not doubting you or anyone specifically on this board, just the general message board mentality.

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

I hit 67% of fairways and hit 8 iron to SW on most par 4s. Those numbers are more meaningful to me than swing speed and carry distance. I know what my swing speed and carry distance are, but I don't care very much and I'm not sure why you do.

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

My average swing speed for Driver is approx. 113. This usually leads to a carry of about 250 for me, with an average drive with roll at about 275. Swinging out of my shoes... 120 is attainable, but I don't carry a tree wood with me, so there's no purpose, other than to try to impress friends if I were lucky enough to hit it straight. Longest drive is about 310, under advantageous conditions, of course.

Someone once asked me what the slowest your swing speed could be, and still be able to hit a 300 yard drive. Factors that are constant would be calm wind, level conditions (not hitting uphill or downhill), maybe 75 degrees out, with somewhat firm fairway to encourage roll... and... hitting it on the screws, with optimal launch angle and spin.

What do you guys think? You think, with roll off a slight draw that 105mph could achieve this under those circumstances? 110?

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

I hit for the first time with a radar behind my club and my average swing was 121. I use a 10.5* TM burner with a regular shaft and it will carry in the 290's. I think im really doing myself a disservice using that driver with a high degree and shaft with a lot of whip for my speed.

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

Weird... my ss is only 102-104... but my AVERAGE carry is 260... am I delusional? I don't think so since I have too many witnesses AND a launch monitor to back me up (although I guess those are not fool-proof). Can someone tell me the correlation?

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

My average swing speed is 108 and my average carry is 240-250...with roll I get them out here around 265-270 consistently. However, I do bomb a 280-300 yard drive once in a while and no it was not down-hill or down-wind...I just think every once in a while I hit it perfect and with a slight draw it gets down there...Now if I could hit more fairways I would be happy as I only average about 35% but I do have a lot of drives that are just barley off the fairway and are playable...my handicap problem is putting and I am getting a putting lesson next week...

Re: What is your swing speed and carry?

102-105MPH swing speed. I get about 245-255 yards of carry.

Currently using a 905T Driver with an ACCRA M4 Stiff Shaft. Looking to upgrade to the 905R, though.
