Average Distances - How Far Do You Hit Each Club? (And Don't Lie!)

Recommended Posts

I know everyone is different, but I was curious as to what distance you hit your clubs (i.e., average distance you consistently hit your clubs). More than anything, I am just curious as to what is normal since the guy I usually play with takes two clubs less than I do. I know consistency matters more than distance, but I was just wondering.

He can't post in that thread, because, well . . .  you know (it's in the thread title).

Seriously dude, stop it. You don't know anything about his game. Stop talking like you do.  Guess what, he doesn't owe you anything. 

driver: 220 3 wood: 170 5 wood: 150 3i:never use it 4i:120 5i:130 6i:130 7i:140(grandpa told me to use my 7 a lot, can you tell) 8i:120 9i:100 Pw:70 Lw:60

Is your handicap index really 36?

Driver: 285
3W: 245
Hybrid: 220
3I: 200
4I: 190
5I: 180
6I: 170
7I: 160
8I: 150
9I: 135
PW: 120
SW/LW: Dunno*
Putter: Hopefully no more than four or five feet.

* I never hit full shots with these clubs. I think my lob wedge goes about 70 yards on a full swing, but I have rarely needed to hit it full. Sand wedge is about 90, I think, full swing.

umm, I don't keep a handicap, but I usually score between 100-110. Most of that comes from a poor short game. I have been working on it and taking lessons, but a job in investment banking is not the most conducive to practicing as often as I would like. Also, this is only my second year playing and I had never played a full 18 until 2 months ago.

3 Wood: 210

Driver: 280
3-Wood: 250
2-Iron: 220 (thinking of switching out with Hybrid)
3-Iron: 210
4-Iron: 200
5-Iron: 190
6-Iron: 180
7-Iron: 165
8-Iron: 155
9-Iron: 140
PW: 130
52*: 115
56*: 100

These are full distances. I usually play each one around 5 yards less. My most versitile club is the 6-Iron. I can play that comfortably anywhere from 165-185. If I'm ever undecided about clubs and a 6 is even in the equation...I usually hit it.

Fairways and Greens.

    • I hope this change breathes new life into GG.  I enjoyed using it for several years.  I switched over to Arccos a couple of years ago due to problems with GG and don't anticipate switching back (although my GG live unit and sensors are still in the closet).  But it's good to have competing companies offering similar products/services--I suspect it may help keep both companies on their toes for technical capability, pricing, reporting formats, etc. 
    • You and your passport will vaporize.  Because of the chip that was installed.
    • I had two players make the cut, Cink and Bradley! I’m expecting to rack up major points!😜
    • I 100%......... Disagree.  If you look at Arnold, Jack, Miller... they hit the ball HARD!!!  Golf is about risk assessment. On a hole where I know it's not in my shot shape, I will not go at it. If there is hole that is open and gives me a lot of room, I can let loose. I was never taught to just go all out.  Now, I think there is benefit to allowing someone growing up to turn a lot and swing harder since it develops speed. Then later on, getting them to control it. I rather have speed than not to have it at all.  In terms of what you are saying, that is game planning.  Again, 100%.... Disagree.  You can get a lob shot to end up inside 30-Ft way more often than hitting a 5-iron to inside 30-Ft. Also, being aggressive, doesn't mean lob shot is your next shot all the time. I can be aggressive, hit a 3-wood into a par 5 green and know the ball is not going to be short sided.  I agree that game improvement irons make it difficult to hit the ball lower. I swing too hard to even what to consider game improvement irons. For those who don't have the swing speed, they struggle to get the ball high enough. So, this maybe for you, it doesn't speak for those who would benefit from game improvement irons the most.  It's hard to do when you swing out of control with muscle back irons. Its also hard to do when your a 30 handicap golfer in general. I rather that golfer get some distance, and proper yardage gaps on their irons than add more struggle to their golf game by playing muscle back irons. In the end, it's the golfers swing not he club that matters the most.  It is pretty beneficial to know what your yardages are. Golf monitors are very beneficial. Especially when you can't get outside for 3-4 months out of the year.
