Ive never seen so many 290 AVERAGE yard drivers before in my life as i have in this thread. WOW! Whenever im playing, I rarely see the long ball hitters who can AVERAGE 290 off the tee, and I play A LOT. Sure I see them here and there, but dang, this thread is full of 290 yard AVERAGE drive guys!

No wind (unlikely in Texas), full swing, Texas hard clay roll out conditions.

Driver 275
3 wood 230 (most erratic club-can hit it 250 with a pure shot and 180 if I sky it)
3H 215
4H 210 (I hit my 4H way better than I do my 3H) last week, I hit one 240 with my 4H)
5H 190
6H 180
7i 170

Driver: 240-260 (depends on course conditions, wind, etc...most of the time closer to 240 though!)
3 Wood: 220
19* Hybrid: 200
4: 185
5: 175
6: 165
7: 150
8: 135
9: 125
P: 115
52*: 105

As you can see, not a big hitter. I scoop my irons and don't take much a divot, and don't get my hands ahead of the ball at impact, which creates loft on the club, which is why I hit my irons short...

but it's ok as long as I'm accurate.

Driver: 250-270 (Longest was 290) Hitting better now with my TM R9 460 10.5*. I absolutely love that driver. I hit similar distances with my dad's 2009 TM Burner but about 10-20 yards shorter but I feel more comfortable with my driver.
Irons: Callaway x18's steel
4: 190-200
5: 190
6: 175
7: 160
8: 150
9: 135
P: 125

I'm pretty new to the game but my dad has been teaching me and he's been playing for a long time. He says I hit it with very good form, especially considering how I've only been playing for about 5 weeks. I'm just glad that I consistently hit them straight. I've been going to the range about 4-5 times a week to practice and can't wait to hit the actual course which I know is a LOT different from the driving range from what I hear. Oh and disregard my handicap index because well I don't know what it is yet.

Ive never seen so many 290

Ive only played with a couple guys who could probably average that kind of distance off the tee, ive been playing for a little over a year and my longest drive ever is about 265 yards, actually just equalled that with my new driver I got a couple weeks ago but I had to smash it perfectly and my friend hit his driver the best he can hit it and outdrove me by some distance, he just simply has a higher swing speed than me, he's quite a bit taller than me and has a longer swing(im 5'11', he's about 6'4") and has been playing a lot longer than me, even if he hits it poorly, he'll still get 250+ almost every time. I outdrove him once last week because he clipped a tree and only hit it about 230, i got 235. One other player ive played with i would say would average at least 300 yards is a pretty big guy, prob around 300 lbs, but just a big stocky guy who flat out knocks the thunder out of the ball, we were playing a 345 yd par 4 and he didnt drive the green but just missed it to the right even with the pin, just the sound when he hits it, you can tell its going far. Some guys i have played with give me some grief when they're hitting an 8and im hitting a 6 the same distance but who cares as long as it gets to the target, at my best I could only hit a 6 iron about 165 and usually in the 150-155 range but i realize this and dont try to hit it further, i know my limits now and dont try to push them, it will only cause bad shots.

Yeesh. I hit my 3H about 185 and my 5i about 160. I'm wimpy.

Those are averages for decent contact. "Shot of my life" is more like 200 with the 3H and 180 with the 5i.

I've never tried hitting my clubs, though it's an interesting concept. I much prefer to hit balls. I find them much more aerodynamically suitable.

just came accross this..made me giggle! hahahah!

Driver- 200-220

Those arent bad at all, ive watched a few lpga events on tv and many of those players who are the best in the world dont average more than 240-250 off the tee, prob the longest is about 270 like lorena, and shes #1 and they dont bomb their irons a mile either, they are usually using about the same club I would for any given distance and Im no long hitter, distance comes from more experience. I wish i had started back in high school as well, im 35 now and have only been playing about 15 months, decided to pick the game up last year on a whim because a couple buddies wanted to play and I said I'll go too and have been playing ever since.

    • I voted 6/7 iron.  I am very comfortable with my 7 iron and 5 iron but my 6 iron is one of those black sheep in my bag.  I have issues with my 6 iron and it has nothing to do with the name brand of the club, it is a total mental block. Give me a 5 iron or 7 iron and I am comfortable in a GIR or nGIR. If I were to drop a club from my bag it would be the 6 iron because for some reason I can dial up my 7 iron to cover that distance.  Only club in my bag I can do that.  And I do not lose accuracy when I do.   7 iron is my 165 club, 5 iron is my 185 club.
    • We just heard from a close friend of our whom we hadn't heard from for awhile.  She went back to work when the lockdown ended, but in a small office with just nine others.  She and her husband are not deny-ers, but felt relatively safe. We had not heard from her because she has been battling COVID Biggly the last month.  It took 21 days of suffering before she could go back to work, and can only do four days, with naps, and when she gets a good night's sleep. She said five of the nine are deny-ers, and two of the others have tested positive. I do not feel I could say how we really flee about those who seem to be on the side of the virus, assisting it's spread, so I'll just repeat . . . . Personal Choice is not how to fight a pandemic. My wife and I just got back from our very-infrequent trip to WalMart, which was 100% mask-compliant, and I thought, "See, that's not that hard." If we could just all get on the same side for a short time, we could be back to our abnormal normal.  No shutdown necessary.
    • I’m quite honest in saying I don’t know wtf  either of you are talking about. But damn...Erik making a hell of a better argument for those of us trying to learn something....just sayin....
    • There is no final report, as that will take weeks. The rear of the car sheared off when the front hit, not the halo. The halo then wedged itself in the barrier, but if it had more than a little speed left at that point it would have just gone completely through it and a ways through the other side. "The International Automobile Federation (FIA) expected its investigation to take six to eight weeks." And anyone could see that the survival cell went THROUGH the barrier, just not very far.A little of the barrier may have been above his head when he was trying to exit, but he was on the other side of the barrier, which is why he had to hop over it to get to safety. Had he been lodged in the barrier, he'd have probably died. Had the car been without a halo, he'd have probably died.
