Driving distances and my 3w. Tips?

8 posts in this topic

So I'm not quite sure what to do at the moment. I have an rbz 10.5 driver stiff shaft, and I thought I hit it well. However I just purchased an rbz stage 2 3w and hit it the same distance if not further on most occasions. What the heck? Is the new rbz just a monster club? Or do I need a lower loft on my driver as it does seem very high to me? Any thoughts appreciated. Driver approx 270-75 carry 280 roll on a crushed drive. 3w 260 carry 275 roll everytime. Changed my distances to yards for you blokes. Cheers.

I dont see a issue, hit the 3w 275 and leave the driver at home.

Also, that sounds like typical internet driving numbers to me for 16 cap.

Agreed. 275 every time, who needs a driver?

or quit hitting your 3 wood so far...seriously, get to a launch monitor to check out your numbers.

If I was hitting my 3w 275 every time, I would for sure use it only. But I have noticed in the past that my 3w was close to my driver distances.....the biggest reason my driver started living in the bag more often.

I know my numbers may seem ridiculous based on my h'cap, but I strike the ball well enough, just no skill from within 100 yards. I had both clubs on an indoor monitor and that was what I got. 9* launch angle with 3w and over 15* with driver, I think that is where my problem lies. I just can't justify dropping driver after I just dropped so much cash on it ha. But I will start hitting 3w on tee shots into the wind as the distance GAIN is very noticeable.

Cheers for the input.

I know it happens, but 275 yards with a 3w regularly? My God. What I would give for that type of distance. Sometimes these stories are just hard to believe. I've played golf all over the world with all types of golfers. Don't think I've ever seen an amateur hit it 275 with a 3w?

Well, it could be that my conversions are a little off, growing up in Aus I'm not that good on distance conversion to imperial, maybe I should look online.

These are my numbers from Metres to Yards on a converter,

Driver average: 260m = 284yd 1.0184ft

3w average drive: 250m = 273yd 1.2100ft

So yeah, I mean I wasn't too far off, numbers seem more exact in yards I suppose. Cheers for the advice.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
