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.

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.

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.

    • Hit the 9 wood on a 186 yard par three, hang time was incredibly long. It finally landed and only bounced about 6' forward. I was 20' to the right of the pin. Lipped out the bird, easy par. I think I like this.
    • Shot 86 on a 6000 yard par 72 yesterday. After a mixed start, I'm very happy with the last 10 holes. 3 O.B. tee-shots and a tee-shot that found a bush 3 yards right of the fairway is responsible for +8 of the score and a couple of bad approach shots on the front +3-4 more. Hit 2 of the first 6 and 6 of the last 10 greens and made no 3-putts on very slow and bumpy greens (33 putts total). Hit my short irons really well from the short stuff (hit all the greens from 150 and in from fairway/semi), but struggled a bit from thick rough and with my longer irons.  Finished the round with a nice birdie on 18, a 310 yard dogleg right par 4 playing a little uphill into the wind. Hit my drive well and it ran through the fairway a couple of yards into the left rough, and left me with 50 yards to the pin. Piched a smooth AW to 7 feet an sunk the putt.  Shot of the day came on hole 11, a short, downhill (10 yards), 275 yards par 4 with a false front (uphill the last 30 yards). Hit a perfect 4 wood directly at the flag and it landed 2 yards short of the green (268y), jumped a yard back because of very soft conditions and left me with 8 yards left to the pin. Made the up and down for a nice birdie there as well.     
    • Well how well did he hit the 2-iron?
    • I had my first shot of the AZ a few weeks ago. I felt a fever coming on about 12 hours later, and spent about a day and half feeling like the poo.  After that it was pretty smooth sailing.     Of course, now Canada is looking to be in short supply of follow up shots with that vaccine, and the Pfizer became readily available about a week later.  That's my luck, but I'm glad that i at least have one shot so far.  
    • Day 80.  Today is a bit of a cop-out, and I debated not posting it and taking the miss.  I gave blood this afternoon and hadn't practiced by that point, so I just did more wall drill rather than swinging a club after giving blood.  I'm not sure swinging a club would have been a bad idea, but I figured I need to ingrain this turn more anyway, so...
