I notice that both of you have different make wedges & irons. The way I found to bridge the gap was to have the same make/model for the whole set, keeping consistancy. I have MX100 irons 4-SW & 50* MX series gap wedge. I don't carry a lob wedge yet, but I will get the MX series LW when I do.

Ive been looking for an AW in my irons set but they are kinda rare and usually expensive. As to someone elses comment about pushing 3/4 shots to the right: you are probably decelerating. Thats a pretty common malfunction for the 3/4 swing where it comes out right.

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.

My distances has crept up 5 to 10 yards the past couple weeks as I've improved my ball striking. I still will rarely go for the green with I'm more than 170 yards out. I'll just lay up. I just broke 100 for the 1st time in my 2 summers of playing this past Saturday! lol

Driver: 260 yards
3W: 225
5W: 185-200
4-hybrid: 170-175
5i: 165
6i: 155-160
7i: 140-150
8i: 130-135
9i: 120-125
PW: 110-115
AW: 100
SW: 20 - 90
LW: only use in special cases

You already appear to have an AW (GW) in your signature, the 52* Cleveland?

Driver: 280
3W: 245
5w: 220
4i:200
5i:190
6i:180
7i:170
8i:155
9i:145
PW:135
GW:125
SW:110
LW:95

Although lately I've been hitting the GW 135 and the PW 140 . Leaves me far too many tweener approaches where I'm left stretching SW or getting too fancy wth the GW.

I agree (although truth be told I don't think I've

I'm gonna blow some minds!

I will dethrone you as the "shortest" hitter on tst. This isnt how far i hit them more like when i use them distance wise. 3w 200+ 4i 180-190 5i 160-175 6i 145-155 7i 130-140 8i 115-125 9i 100+-110 W 90+-100 over lofted 9 iron 80 - in I like these distances because i know what to hit and i can keep my swing the same. Whats the point of hitting a 9 iron 165 yards and a wedge a 100 thats quite a distance gap.

How does anyone hit a 60 degree lob wedge 100 yards?

Do you de-loft the club to hit it that far? If so, whats the point, why not just hit a longer club?

How does anyone hit a 60 degree lob wedge 100 yards?

i find it hard to believe that so many here have posted 100 yard lob wedges too. however, it is possible. my ex father in law would de-loft the crap out of his irons. he would practically play the ball off of his back foot. nothing went higher than 30 feet off the ground, but they sure went far, lol. personally, id rather hit a high arcing shot so the ball lands softer. but thats just me.

I hit mine at around 95 yards and hit it high. "de-lofting" is naturally occurring in a good golf swing. The degrees of loft is measured when the shaft is straight up and down, while you are supposed to make contact with the ball with your hands out in front of the club head.

Good point. There is a lot of accusations that only Tiger etc hits his 6i 200yards and everyone on here is lying. But as you say if you hit the ball properly with your hands in front of the club those distances are not unreasonable.

I play with a mate who's built like Camillo Vilegas but he only hits his 6i about 170, i hit my 6i 190-200 because i transfer my weight a lot better than my mate does.

hitting a lob wedge 100 yards isn't hard now one thing to take in effect is mine is like 15 years old not used a lot though so less spin on it means more distance to an effect cause the faces and groves of today wedges make them shorter

Mine is 130 ...deloft yes. back in stance unless its high in the rough then i move it to middle or forward. at 130 yards it still towers in the air and sticks a green after a bounce.

any further than 130 and i use a pw .

D-240-270 carry, little to no roll on the 270, cause they go high. I should've got a lower loft
3W-230 with roll, don't know how much carry, never measured
5W-210 with roll, """""
3H-Around 200 210-190, depends on the lie.
4I- 175
5I- 165
6I- 160
7I- 145
8I- 125
9I- 120
PW- 115
SW- Never full swing it, but around 50 on a half swing
60LW- 50

I'm not too good with the irons, mainly because I hit everything a little thicker then I'd like.

Today I was on a par 3 that was exactly 195 to the pin (I shot it with my RF). I played this hole twice today and hit 2 the second time around. The first time I hit a 7 iron and it landed on the back fringe and spun back 2 feet and was still on the fringe at about 205 yards. The second time I played the hole I decided to hit an 8 iron. I mishit it and came up 10 yards short of the pin. I hit another with the 8 iron and hit that one into the back left trap at around 205 yards. So I guess I hit my 7 205yards and my 8 also 205, but only when struck well....











































Oh yea, I forgot to mention The wend was blowing about 15-20MPH downwind

    • I think that the current prices of gold and platinum that they use are reflected in the price. Seriously - what sort of idiot would pay these prices? In @billchao's post for two fairway woods I was wondering where the iron set was.  People are paying for a shafting, not shafts. Geez.
    • It always amazes me how someone can have the top 13 of anything done at the highest athletic level.     
    • Yeah I really like that Hybrid for sure. I like that you can flatten the lie angle of the G410s. I will probably mess with a G410 5w and loft it down to near a 4w. It was a blast getting to play some golf with you this past week Matt. It has been way too long since we were able to meet up for that. I was super happy that you were able to make this trip! On another note I went to the range tonight and had very good results adding a little "throw" to the downswing. I did not hit a single ball out of the bottom of the driver. I am super happy with the results as I was hitting the ball much higher. Now I just need to repeat that. 
    • I am getting very tired of these slow starts. 6-6-5-4. 6 over before  hit the 5th tee. Doesn't matter how many I hit at the range, it always seems to take me 4 holes to loosen up and settle in......
    • Just buy one more hybrid, you hit that really good!!!  Glad to see you back at the game again. It was fun playing golf with you up in Wisconsin!
