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

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.

Well that stupid statistic is wrong, I'm pretty sure I average 280 with my driver. If I only hit my driver 218 I would quit golf. Don't tell us if we are lieing, I think we all know how far we hit our clubs.

Some pretty funny distances vs. handicaps here. For what it's worth, here are mine (average), give or take, for a full(ish) swing:

Driver: 275
4-wood: 235
2-iron: 220
3-iron: 205
4-iron: 195
5-iron: 185
6-iron: 170
7-iron: 160
8-iron: 150
9-iron: 140
PW: 130
GW: 115
SW: 100

All are 'carry distances', not final distances.

Driver: 220-230
3 Wood: 205-210
2 Hybrid: 195
4 Hybrid: 175
5 Hybrid: 165
6 Iron: 155
7 Iron: 145
8 Iron: 135
9 Iron: 120
PW: 105
GW: 95
SW (54): 80
LW (58): 60

There are a few yardage gaps that are really too big. I would like to get the lofts adjusted on my PW and GW, but have yet to do it. I very seldom ever hit a full SW or LW.

I honestly have no real true idea how far I hit any of my clubs. I am more of a feel player. I hit 7 iron from 120 or 170 depends on the shot needed. I am getting on our trackman launch monitor next year to find out all my carry distances for full swings.

I know that but a 16 handicap hitting 300 plus yard come on.

I'm a +4.0 and your gonna call me a fibber... 218 is for the average once a week player who doesn't play much... even though the USGA says a bogey golfer can only hit a 200 yard drive... and a "scratch" can drive 250 yards and reach a 470-yard hole with 2 strokes... Just because I can reach a 570-yard hole with 2 strokes doesn't mean I'm fibbing... and most of the guys in here are at least 12 handicaps or better

I am not calling you a fibber because bieng a +4 handicap you probably averag well over 280, but 12 handicaps 310+, that is almost impossible because to hit such long distances you have to have a good launch monitor stats (launch angel, low spin rate,ect.) an to get good launch moniter stats you must have a great swing.

I find it funny you hit your 60 95, but your PW 135. I hit my 60 around 80 and my PW is around 140-145. Different swings i guess.
