With my last set of 09 Burners, I thought I was a pro.  I could swing like a gorilla and carry a wedge 135-140 pretty consistently.  Of course no one told me the wedge wasn't actually a wedge.  Now I've got Nike VR Pro irons and my carry distances are:

Driver  - been a long time since i could hit it properly, not sure

5wood - 210

4 iron - 190

5 iron - 180

6 iron - 170

7 iron - 160

8 iron - 150

9 iron - 140

PW - 120

GW(52) - 105

SW(56) - 90

LW(60) - 75

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.

Average distances (yards) with a controlled swing and decent contact -

Driver: 210 (work in progress)

3 Wood: 210

5 Wood: 190

4 Hybrid: 180

5 Iron: 160

6 Iron: 150

7 Iron: 140

8 Iron: 130

9 Iron: 120

PW: 110

GW: 100

LW: ?

I'm not (too) embarrassed or bothered of my lack of distance, but I think I can and should learn to get another 10-20 from my driver. Also, there's a gap of 20 yards between my 4 hybrid and my 5 iron. This can cause problems on a couple of the holes I play. Don't know whether to fill in the gap with 5 hybrid or try to get a bit more distance from my irons. I can easily add another 10 yards on each iron if I hit with a flatter trajectory but I prefer the higher shots. Hell, at my skill level I'm just happy that my distances are somewhat predictable.

This is where I'm at currently (RBZ woods, BurnerPlus irons) but I am looking at upgrading my irons to the AP1's. Yesterday I was hitting the vokey 58* 100 yds and the ap1 6i nearly 170 yds (when hit well). Lighter/shorter shafts....so obviously I'm gonna have to re-gap from the ground up. Driver - 220-240 3W - 200-220 5W- 200-210 5H - 185 5i - 170 6i - 160 7i - 150 8i - 140 9i - 130 PW - 120 AW - 90-110 SW - 50-75 LW - 40-60

Driver - 280-300

3-Wood - 260-270

3-Hybrid - 240-250

4i - 210-220

5i - 200-210

6i - 190-195

7i - 175-180

8i - 165-170

9i - 160-165

PW - 150-155

AW - 140

(Too big of a gap in between these clubs)

56 - 110

60 - 95

I also play with somebody who is about 10 yards longer than me for every iron, and hits his driver at least 330 consistently. Definitely the longest player I've ever played with.

First of all: I'd love to lose length to gain aim :) Driver: ~265 yards 4w: ~235 yards 1i: ~230 yards (off the tee only) 3i: ~210 yards 4i: ~195 yards 5i: ~185 yards 6i: ~174 yards 7i: ~161 yards 8i: ~148 yards 9i: ~135 yards W (48*): 120 yards SW (56*): 90 yards LW (60*): 75 yards And I'm considered a long(ish) hitter. :) Also: I have a very old driver, if I swing all out it'll go further (295 yards isn't an exception), but I lose a lot of fairways in regulation then.

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 even when I lay off. 2 Iron - If you look at the ground after I hit, you can find the little plastic letters and numbers from the ball. 3 Iron - Used this when I hit my 182nd hole in one yesterday, par 6, 783 yards, back pin, head wind screaming like a flaming eagle. 4 Iron - I swung this and a guy eating lunch shit himself. 5 Iron - Not very far (340-360) because I removed the grip and shaft so I can just swing the club head in my palm. 6 Iron - I once swung hard and hit a ball back in time. 7 Iron - If the zombie apocalypse broke out, all I'd need is a 7 iron and a bucket of balls - BOOM HEAD SHOT. 8 Iron - I can hit it on the green of any local course - from the pavement of my driveway. 9 Iron - Had my 9 iron bent to 180* so I could play left and right handed at the same time. PW - 289, every single time. 2-8-9. GW - 279, every single time, 2-7-9 SW - I swing in the trap and diamonds come flying out 84* - 150 with 1/10th swing (all I every need) Putter - I can beat you with only my putter in my bag (and a telescoping ball retriever so we can fetch your mishits). Umbrella - 120 Yards. Basically, on the par 3's, I'm 84*, maybe putter.  Par 4's, 7 Iron, Putter,  Par 5's, 5 Iron, umbrella, putter. I'd go on the tour but I'm too busy posting my numbers on the internet to play.

Not sure if people are listing averages or their best shot ever, these are my averages.

Driver 190

5W    180

3W    180

6i       150

7i       140

8i       130

9i       115

PW    105

GW    don't know

SW    1/2 distance I needed to get out bunker

I didn't realize (aside from driver) that I was such a slouch on distance.  I blame my clubs a little they aren't great but I suppose my swing needs some work too.

We're about the same. The way I figure, it is what it is and lying about it isn't going change it. All I can do is try to improve. I like your SW distance.

Thanks for your honesty, now I feel better.  I too and not a big distance hitter.  I just concentrate on my "old mans golf" method of getting it straight down the fairway and staying out of trouble.

Driver                225

Hybrid 3 18deg  190

Hybrid 4 21deg  180

5 I                    165

6 I                    155

7 I                    145

8 I                    135

9 I                    125

PW                  115

Gap 52             100

Sand 56             75

Lob 60               50

Wedges are so variable you can get all kinds of distances  when you de-loft them.

Hit them straight and seldom!

Everyone has it all messed up.

You are supposed to be able to lie in this thread, just not the other. Quite a few have confused the two.

    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
    • The ace wins, but really they lose when you consider the cost of drinks compared to the small amount won for closest in two!
    • Yes, I'm going to go through all the tutorials. I also started the flight plan to look at Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia, but it was too late. Let me get the hang of everything and I'll check out the mutlitplayer. MSFS has already used up 100 GB I suspect it'll get to 200GB.
    • I actually haven't done it, yet.  Used to be in the Traffic menu, there was a section to see online multiplayers or friends--but I haven't been in that menu in months.  I think then you can just get together and decide on a place to spawn, and you'll see one another and can possibly chat on headset.  Not sure if more is needed for the chat piece.  I know I can see my one random friend's online status and his scores on the landing challenges.  Maybe there's some option to "find" them in the sim?  I'll look more into all the multiplayer stuff tonight.  But friend me if you want, and we'll see if we can figure it out. I don't have it on my XBox...pretty limited space on that guy these days.  But, yeah, I bet it'd drain controller batteries like crazy if it's constantly rumbling.  Not sure how much flying, or sim-flying you've done, but if you're just starting out, maybe some of the AI-assist options around trim and power/mix control could help.  The training items seem to be pretty informative, too.   Tying it into golf, I've checked out a bunch of famous courses...everything in the Monterrey peninsula area, a lot of the UK, Bandon, etc.  I usually start at some random city, then pick a course I want to 'play', takeoff, find the course and give it a flyover, then land at the nearest airport in a little 'pretend mission' like I'm going on a golf buddy trip in my private plane. .  Then next time, takeoff from there and pick the next course.  I just made the hop from northern Ireland over to the west coast of Scotland a few nights ago.  In that part of the world, if you enable live weather, it can turn into a real challenge in smaller planes.
    • Day 32 (28 Jul 21) - Played nine today with the 5yr old grandson.  We got back before the rain started.  Used this practice round to work on ball striking and carry distance.  Using the Approach S20, I had planned to used the back distance of the greens as the "carry" factor on the approaches.  Of course if the pin was in the front, then I used the middle distance (center of green) to figure what I needed to carry.  Planned well, executed poorly as the round had only 1 GIR and 4 nGIR.
