How far do you hit your irons? I'm still trying to figure out distance on my longer irons, my increments between those clubs is still a bit foggy.

for me... (a 16 year old 20 handicaper)

4 iron: 180-190 5 iron: 180-170 6 iron: 160+ 7 iron: 150+ 8 iron: 140+ 9 iron: 130+ PW: 130- (lots of loft but longer then usual shaft on my pitch) T o be honest i odnt thin you going to find out much from that kind of qu, after all the people using this forum are a massive variety of abilites and strengths and weakness's in different aspects of the game, i dont hit my irons massive distances, but my woods, rescue woods and drivers are massivley longer in distance then my irons, i hit a 24 deg rescue wood 220 and my driver goes 310!!!! see what i mean.... not a fair question.

5'10, 165 lbs.

56* SW-100

My distance varies as i can usually step on a club if i need to, but i usually swing about 90 % with each club and if i have to i'll hit as hard as i can.

where i live right now its 9* cold and wet right now, golf balls wont carry as far in these conditions so my irons wont go as far and my driver goes a little farther than i carry it (245) the ball will hit sometimes hit dead and embed or get a one bounce roll out to 255-260. Completely different story then in the summer when i'll get 30 yards of roll.

Its odd people having these gaps between irons, i seem to have some inconsistancy with my longer irons but it is due to miss hits not lofts. Ball position will also determine how far you hit your irons.. I used to play my shorts irons too far up in my stance, now i play them way back and hit them a whole lot farther. Your iron set will also determine distance, usually a salesmen will tell you distance is not the same with irons as a driver which is completely untrue.. I used to play mizuno mx-23's and hit a 6 up to 185.. with my tp combos im about a club shorter.

    • Wow, looks more suited to Croqeut than golf. Cant find anyting on the interweb about it. Looks like its pretty old though.
    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
