About 4 months ago when I got fitted for irons I learned that my swing speed with a 7-iron was about 90-92 MPH. The club fitter considered this to be very high and the irons I was recommended were with extra stiff shafts.
4 days ago I went for a driver fitting and learned that on average I swing my driver about 97-99 MPH. Common sense tells me this ratio is not ideal. I know there was nothing wrong with the equipment. When I really tried to swing hard, I could get the driver up to 115-120 but it felt very out of control.
What I'm wondering is, how much swing speed variation do you guys see with different clubs? I believe the reason I don't swing hard with the driver is because I'm trying to focus on so many things to not mess up my shot and slice. I probably use my arms too much to almost slow down my swing and keep it under control. That can't be good.
