Recommended Posts

1W 225 (CARRY 205-210)
3W 205
3H 190
4H 180
5I 168
6I 158
7I 148
8I 135
9I 120
PW 108
GW 90
SW 75
LW 60

Obviously any par 4 over 400 yards into the wind gives me trouble, sigh.

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. 

Sample size 32 rounds. Dont hit my 5 iron so theres only a few shots for that. I use a 5 hybrid 25 degree instead. The 6 hybrid Ive only used sparingly.

Driver 270
3wood 255
5 wood 235
3 iron 215
4 iron 202
5 iron 190
6 iron 178
7 iron 166
8 iron 154
9 iron 140
PW 128
54 110
58 90

A good exercise - I've been thinking about having another wedge instead of the 3 iron seeing as how I don't use it much and the gaps in the wedges are quite big. Maybe 47, 51, 55, 59 combo.

LW - 60
SW - 80
PW - 100
9i - 115-120

Driver - 220-230 avg ... bombs with right conditions, and on rare occasion, 250-260

60*: 90
64*: 77

Other than my wedges, I've put about 20-30 yards on every club this season. This is from a combination of delofting and pinching my irons a lot better, and hitting the gym hard (strength and flexibility training).

It looks as if most of the people posting are lieing because the average male golfer hits 218 yards and most of the people say they hit 250-300.

I completely agree. Either that or some incredible swing speeds. One guy is hitting his 6 iron farther than the average male hits his driver. Not saying its not possible, I've hit mine on from like 195, but that's with some wind.

For me it goes Driver- 260 down the middle average, catch on the screws probably closer to 285 3 wood Tee-250 Deck- 240 3 hybrid- 220 off tee 215 off deck, but i like easy swings on this a lot for like 200 yard par 3s, i aim for the pin and it lands soft as a butterfly. 4 iron 195 5 iron 185 6 iron 175 7 iron 165 8 iron 155 9 iron 145 PW 135 52 120 56 100 60 80

I also believe it's true that the average golfer hits his driver 220 yards or less, however because of that I do not automatically assumer everyone here is fibbing. The reason being I do not think that sandtrap members are average golfers. Average golfers, in the US, anyway are weekends warriors with offbrand clubs that are a decade old....the average golfer does not break 100. I think sandtrap members play on weekly basis if not more, and take the game a lot more serious, serious enough to join an internet forum dedicated to it. I would argue that the average sandtrap member is better than the average golfer.

Very good thought , I agree with every point stated.

I hit my clubs incredibly short... compared to even the shortest hitter on here.

driver ~ 160
3 wood ~ 140 of the deck (but inconsistent), never really hit it off the tee
3 hybrid ~ 140
5 iron ~ 135
7 iron ~ 120
9 iron ~ 105
SW ~ 90 (but not high like it should be, I hit 90 when I skull it.

These distances are for good, really solid hits.

I can hit each club further but by about 10 yards if I need to, but I really don' t know where it is going.

    • This comment makes me think of Mid South #2. 😉 I assume you remember driving the green in fourball at 2017 Newport Cup.  Pretty sure that was a longer carry than this one lol. 
    • Just got home from Wisconsin.   Again, thank you @cipher and @iacas for setting this up and running this trip. I had a fantastic time and it was great to see most of you again and to meet some of you for the first time. The courses were amazing, and we could not have ask for better weather. The most rain we got was a few sprinkles today for like 3 minutes. 
    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
