With my previous Irons, I averaged around 140-145yards with the 9iron. I have yet to actually play my new irons on a course...just in a simulator and very briefly at a range. Work and this excessive rain are ruining my chances to get out and play.

My 9 iron is my 150 club.  My longest ever was off a tee, back of my stance with a hard draw swing and hit it 180.  off the ground....hitting it as hard a i can probably 170 at the max.  But it is my 150 club with a full swing.

It's Jack Hamm!

By the way, the average carry for a 9 iron on the PGA Tour is 148 yards. So we've got at least 5 or 6 guys on this thread alone who obviously missed their calling!

My 9 iron is my 140 yard club.

148 is normal shot at sea level.  I have hit it as far as 180 in las vegas with a stiff breeze at my back.  The ball there already goes about 1 to 1 1/2 club farther than in NC there though.

The OP was wanting to know how far did the farthest 9-iron you've ever hit travel. I had one travel > 200 yards this year. It was a flyer lie on a hot humid evening and I over swung. My target was a pin at ~ 170. I was allowing for the flyer, but not the spastic overswing. I one hopped my ball into the bush at 200 yards. My best 9-iron "score" is > 200 yards. Technically is was one of the worst 9-irons I've ever hit because it turned an eagle chance into a bogey chance.

Cmon give the kid a break. He's polish and probably speaks english as a second language. How would you feel if everyone expected you to speak perfect spanish if you visited spain? For someone who is supposed to be an adult you seem to make some childish posts.

Sean's made some pretty childish posts in his day (I think he'd be the first to admit that), but the one you quoted doesn't seem to be one of them.  If anything he was just clarifying for Zeph what the OP was asking.

Are you sure you're quoting the correct person?

I really think that everything in your post needs clarification and/or citations.

Please explain yourself.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
