Which club you use for what distance is simply another dick measuring contest... it's what keeps the bad players playing bad.

Standing on a par 3 150 yards

partner:  What club did you use?

Me: The club that would put it where I wanted to with these conditions at that distance...

partner:  Yeah but which one

Me: ....

Want to know your distances? Want to know the overlaps?

Get on a launch monitor, OUTSIDE, and do a club mapping.

I HATE The 150 yd shot - right in between my 8i (145 yds) & 7i (155 yds).

I find I do better hitting a hard 8i rather than taking off a 7i.   I might choke up an inch or so on a 7i ... just depends on the shot & if the worst miss is short or long

Usually I'm a 6I as well. Once in a while, If the green is open-front and I'm hitting it well, I'll go 7I. It's a fairly annoying spot for me because I don't really get the air I need to stop the 6I most of the time. If I can find a bit more length, it ought to make a big difference.

I'm trying to gauge where I am with my iron distances. I feel like I hit my clubs way weaker than my buddies. I'm an athletic fellow and I really love golf, but I am pretty overweight and wonder if that's affecting my club speed. I hit a 6 iron when hitting 150 yds, whether on the tee or on the fairway. I want to know what my deal is. I also probably hit my driver 230-250 ish, and would love to figure out how to hit that further. I don't want to get 300, but maybe 250 consistently. So, just a quick survey, what club do you hit for 150 yds?

If your HI is 25 as you said, keep working on swing mechanics and the distance will increase.   And ... get that weight down in any case.   That will only help you in more ways than one. B-)

I always go for the choking down option as it's marginally the better option. But a hard 8i would end up fat and the choked 7i would end up thin :-\ .

150 was a 7 for me at the beginning of the season, but now it's an 8 as I've gotten better :-D . Big improvement year for me. Iron length depends on a few things, good contact, divot in front of the ball, club is delofted a bit.

Wait, divot in front of the ball? Not right under it?

He meant towards the target. The definitions can be confusing. . .like chunking the ball means hitting behind the ball. . .

Well that's what I meant too. That makes sense. I'm going to my golf lesson tomorrow. I'm going to try that.

THanks.

I used to blast my 53* 150. Even used 8i at 180-190. Hc was a 18 at best 16. Now I'm swinging slower smoother and 8i is my 150. My hc is down to a 7.6 from an 11 from 15 rounds ago. It's been my biggest breakthrough. 60* is up to 99. 53* is up to 120. Pw -139. 9i-145. these are my scoring clubs. last night I was within 9 feet from 50,60,70,74,90,100,116,136 made 3 birdies a bogey recovery and 4 pars for a 78 at the end. The only lack of distance I worry about is my driver. If your 230-250 your fine.

I Forgot to add you could choke down on your driver some for that long par 3. It will shorten your distance.

It might, I tried to choke down on mine for control, ended up hitting more out of the middle and they went miles further as smash factor went up.

I feel like the short hitter here lol. 6i is my standard 150 club. I can hit it further if I swing out of my shoes but I have no idea where it will end up.

My eight iron was always my standard 150 yard club. I started swimming in January and now I can actually hit my sand wedge 150 yards and it goes sky high.

It really depends on the playa

Most people can hit that distance with basically any club in their bag if they take something off a longer iron or deloft a shorter iron or wedge. But if we're talking stock shot for 150, it's my 8i which Game Golf tells me averages 149. I'll take my chances with that last yard, haha.

    • Thanks for the input @boogielicious.   I've seen, but not in detail, the COVID drills,  I'll take a closer look at them.  You also mentioned the "Towel Drill", is this what you are referring to? It was posted by @mvmac a few years back on TST.
    • No one started out being a "scratch" golfer...……  Be the kind of person you would want to play along with...... I prefer to play with people that are better than me - I find that tends to make me play better.
    • I’d love to see a picture of the MacGregor chipper, if you get a chance. The argument against chippers seems to have a couple of main themes. First, “It’s a single purpose club that takes up one of the 14 slots allowed by the Rules.” True, but we carry two other single purpose clubs and I don’t see a movement to start putting with a driver, even thought the lofts are similar. The other, “Real golfers don’t carry chippers!”, seems to imply some kind of group consensus of what a club set is supposed to consist of; but I gave up trying to run with the pack in my 50’s. 😊
    • No guesses as to whether it'll survive, but I would think whether it does or not, streaming is going to be more prevalent. Despite the problems with Peacock and the USO, maybe they're going to broadcast some tournaments via Peacock? I don't see the COVID situation changing drastically anytime soon and with the uptick in people golfing, you'd figure there would be a chance to capitalize on that but that's not happening AFAIK.
