Driver - So far that you wouldn't want your wife to see me hit it. 3+ Wood - You'd get tired and have to sit down while walking to my ball. 1 Iron - Wooden tees catch fire like match heads eve

^^^ My brother from another mother!

We should totally play sometime! I can only hit driver on holes that run north-south, anything east-west is a no go. Just too risky, don't wanna **** up the earth's rotation.

I've never seen so many people hit their 9-irons 160 yards. Most pros don't average that. But apparently the 20 handicappers here do...

it's not real hard to get a 9i to 160 dude

more believable than a LW 100yds + hit the gym, have a strong core, shoulders, back and tonns of flexibility drills i used to hit my 7i to 150, now i'm a 9i from 150 or so 160 is a bit long, but it can be done

This thread makes me laugh. Only 1 guy I know that can hit an 8i 160+ yards and he is 6'8" an erratic as ****.

dude look at a majority of the people w single digi hcp's most of them base their 9i from 150 or so...it's not that un-believable to hit an 8i to 160 or so, at all being 6'8" has ZERO to do with your buddy hitting an 8i to 160 BTW i am 6'2" and 195lbs...i have no problem hitting my 8i to 160, could even wrench in a 9i, but the 8i is a better club for that distance my best bud in H/S is 5'9" and like 140 lbs...also same yardages as me w his irons...it's not all size bro

its weird because in my 10 years of playing competitive golf I can count the number of people that hit 25 to 30 yards past me every hole on my fingers.

For the shorter irons, I tend to de-loft with my steep swing thus increasing my distance on those clubs. This is less pronounced for the 3-6i.

160 for a 9i is a bit strong for me, but for not an issue for an 8i.

My distances have been all over the place this year. (I've already posted to this thread twice with updates.) I've made quite a few major swing adjustments and I am having trouble dialing in my distances. My LW (58°/10°) has been as short as 60 yards and as long as 105 with a full swing. My 8 iron which for years was a very consistent 145 degrees was at 170 today at the range. I played with my brother (a beginner) at a short par 31 course on Saturday. I shot in the low 40s due mostly to not being able to find the right club for the distances I needed. I usually shoot about 34 or 35 at this course.

I don't know if I am finally reaching my distance potential or if these are just flukes. I am unable to rely on my irons at this point. My scores were better when I was playing out of the trees on the right and forcing myself to get up and down to save pars and bogeys.

So here is my latest update (median distances):
Driver : 270
3 Wood : 245 (tee), 235 (deck)
3 Hybrid : 230 (tee), 220 (deck)
4 Hybrid : 210
4 Iron : 200
5 Iron : 195
6 Iron : 180 (I'm not sure that this club is necessary. It is my most inconsistent.)
7 Iron : 175
8 Iron : 160
9 Iron : 140
PW : 120
52° : 110
58° : 90

D- 220
3w - 190
19*h - 170
6- 150
7- 140
8- 130
9- 115
P- 90
56*- 40

I scoop my irons which is why I have such short distances. I wish I could hit down I just cant, I play really clean and have high shots that drop on the green great but its a trade off in distance. My #1 flaw is chipping, I just cant do it , costs me 10 strokes a game no joke

I know the distances I hit the ball because I count every yard of the hit by walking to the ball, I cannot believe some of the distances people are hitting their clubs, perhaps the PGA should make more room for all the players who can hit a pitching wedge 148 yards or their 3wood off the deck 260 yards. I looked up the average distances of clubs for amateurs and I am considered a long hitter, my pitching wedge distances ate between 100-118 and my 3wood goes about 225. I do not normally participate in these discussions but I wanted to find out the difference between distances at sea level and further inland. Guys golf is hard enough without having to brag about who is longer...did you get that!!!

    • Missed my league night on vacation in Virginia Beach last week. Hadn’t played in 2 weeks. Decided to go early and do extra short game work prior to my tee time. I expected to be a little bit off and need my short game. It paid off. I didn’t hit the ball well at all but managed to post a solid score. Right out of the gate I pulled a 9 iron left at 1. Ball on heavy rough, with a green sloping away. Chipped to one foot to save par. Bogey at 2 missed a short save. At 3 I got up and down again. Caught a flyer at 4 and missed a little deep. Made bogey. Up and down at 5. Bogey at 6. Then got hot. Stuck a wedge to 8 feet at 7 and lipped out the putt. Wedge to 6 feet at 8 made birdie. Stuck another wedge to 5 feet at 9 for birdie. Closing birdie birdie got me to +1 for the side. -2 net. Not bad considering I only hit 3 greens in regulation. 13 putts for the side is good for the score card.
    • Just an aside.  Bumped into an old friend on the practice green on Saturday.  Told him I was playing at 9:20 on Monday and that he was welcome to join me.  I let him know I'd be using a power cart because of a torn meniscus. Overnight I start thinking about the guy... a conspiracy theorist, crypto currency guy, etc., etc.  Though he did sell Mercedes' at a dealership once.  How mainstream is that? He shows up Monday morning.  I hop in the cart, clubs strapped in.  In short order Jeff straps on his clubs and hops in.  I say, "Jeff, gotta ask you a difficult and potentially rude question... are you vaccinated?"  "Hell no!"  So I told him I'd pay for a 2nd cart for him.  He was good with that and understood.  Great round... had a lot of fun.  But at 6 feet.
    • Shot an 83 today at Mesa Linda, which may become my home course soon.  No birdies;  a double at #1 and a triple at #18, with par-or-bogey for the other 16.  
    • Where I used to live, Los Angeles, a half hour drive might get you 2-3 miles depending on the time of day.  Now I'm south of there and half an hour is a good distance away.  If I didn't cross county lines that trip, I came close -- there's a golf course near there where the first nine is in one county and the second nine is in the other.
    • Great Idea looking forward to getting the sharpie out. Club championship this weekend need all the help I can get.
