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.

LW-85
56* SW-100
52*-110
PW-130
9-140-45
8-150-55
7-160-65
6-175
5-185
4-195
3-205

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.
