I used to blast my 53* 150. Even used 8i at 180-190. Hc was a 18 at best 16.

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

Wow! At least not all the golf studs are on the PGA tour.

SUCCESS!!!

I kinda asked this exact same thing in the 'how far do you hit your clubs' thread.  We have this video of Spieth hitting a PW 150 and even the announcer says that's a huge PW yet... apparently

I hit my 5 iron 145 and 5 hybrid (25") 155.

Most greens have more trouble in the front than back. Hit the driver. Or maybe a 3 wood?


HUH? :blink: Okay well that gap wedge I airmailed the green from 125 and then had to hack out of knee high while stymied behind a tree was less trouble? I think I would have been better off chunking it 10 yards and taking a bogey than a 7 triple that day.

As far as a 150 club? 8 iron carry 144 and with a firm green I would say 150, 7 iron usually 153 carry.

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.

+1. My 7 iron is 145, so I usually hit a smooth 6 iron. Goes lower. If there is trouble in front, I take the 7 iron. I can hit the 8 iron as well. I try to never over swing. Usually results in a hook.

Depends I hit PW-7 from 150 as the conditions change. It's rare to just have a straight number and usually because my most prominent miss is short it's one club more than my controlled situation averages i.e. the range on perfect lies. In thick rough I might struggle to get a 6 iron to 150 if it's uphill with wind in my face because I know it's not going to be a good contact. What should fly 35 yard over could land short. Last thing I want to do is leave it very short. My goal if I think I am going to miss a green is try to get it where the next shot is chip and run distance not a pitch where controlling distance will be tough again in an iffy lie.

Thanks for that, now i think i know why ive been hooking the ball. Only seems to happen when i use mustard.

I am fat and don't swing exceptionally hard, but I can hit my 9 iron 150 but usually hit 8 iron gripped down. I'm still trying to zero in my new irons though. It's your swing, not your weight. Weight can matter a little for certain aspects, but unless you are like 450 pounds I doubt that's why you are hitting a 6 iron for your 150 yard shots.

All you guys saying you hit PW 150 yards is that 150 yards carry? I know there are some strong lofted pitching wedges out there but that is a hardcore wedge shot. Do you find you're really consistent with that distance?

do you see an increase with your other clubs through the year? how often do you have to dial in your distances during a golf season?

I have to dial my distances about twice a year. Around mid July, my swing is dialed in and weather conditions are the best they can be. I usually have to hit a club less or I'm firing it over the green. Once October comes, the weather is cooler and I go back to my shorter distances.

Ill tell u my 150 yard club in a sec but first i want to show you the fountain of golf. My pure love for the game led me to this point and id really like to share with anyone who will listen. I tell everyone who will listen but esp noobs or higher handicaps. I want the lowest score possible, the easiest way possible, and i dont wanna be golf mad, i want to have a blast while doing it. I pondered that for a long time. When i figured out the solution, i googled it and what d' ya know? Im not so crazy after all. IT DOESNT MATTER!!! Ive shot legit rounds in the 80s and at 32 years of age in pretty decent shape i CANT hit it over 193 at the moment. DISTANCE is helpful but NOT required. If u are playing the correct tees all par 4s should be right at 400 or less. Lets say 368 is the average. Hit ur 6 150. Hit ur six again 150. U are now 68 yards from the green. Take a wedge and hit the ball to the fattest portion of the green. Make a putt and u have a par. 2 putt and u have a bogey. Bogey golf is good golf unless ur on tour. Try it and i doubt you will care what club u hit 150. If u think im crazy, google plugged in golf how to break 90. They confirmed my little plan was unorthodox but not crazy. 2nd try out with it i went from shooting high 90s to shooting a 88. SORRY, Had to say all that. To answer ur ?, i hit my 8 iron 150. When i do use woods and im hitting it well, i get it out there about 220. (Lol and that game plan usually gets me a 92. If im hitting the woods well...if not hit well and i follow that plan....hello 104.)

Your theory is exactly right.Every one who cant break 90 should use that method to shoot better scores.Granted its not as fun but then again how fun is spraying ball everywhere, taking penalty strokes and shooting high number.The person would have to be a good iron player because 1 mishit with a shorter club and your adding yards to holes.No offense but I dont see how anyone can hit a pw 150 yards unless your hitting it low and thin.Rarely see pros hitting pw 150 except for longest of hitters.

    • Good question.  I don't have a degree in agronomy but I think it's because if the turf freezes over night and then it's thawing out in the morning footsteps can do damage. But if it's hard frozen after several days apparently you're good to go.
    • So... I'm not knowledgeable about this, but I believe we can't play with frost because that damages the grass.  Why are sub-freezing rounds allowed?  Wouldn't the grass be damaged then too?  (And for the record, I'm happy to play in the mid-30s, but not when the wind is more than 20mph.)
    • Day 409: Lesson / iron fitting today. I've managed to tame the hook issue and I'm not shoving my right hand over anymore to close the clubface and catch up with my hips/core. Ball flight is on target and my miss is a push that doesn't draw. Still hit an occasional nasty hook, but those are becoming much less frequent. I'm still stuck on AoA of 0.5-2 degrees down, when it was previously more in the range of 2-4 degrees down. My sternum is just hanging slightly back, so working on this is the priority piece for this month. 
    • The timing of this post was perfect for me. I watched the video yesterday, and did an iron fitting with my instructor today. Thanks for the content! Points 1-3 were pretty well established through conversations with my instructor during lessons leading up to the fitting, as well as email exchanges. I thought I had narrowed down my choices pretty well, but when I arrived and saw all the heads I requested lined up, I realized there was no way I would have time to sufficiently test all of them. We had another good talk and narrowed it down to four (down from maybe ten). Point 4, I was certainly prepared not to buy anything if the data suggested no improvement, but it was pretty apparent that the shaft/head combos I was testing were noticeably better than my current set. Point 5, we accomplished this by rotating through the head/shaft combos multiple times, and then throwing out data that were clearly poor swings, and doing multiple passes with different shafts, and switching back to a previous shaft, and basically randomizing the combinations a bit. In the end, we eliminated quite a few shots to get what felt like a representative data set. The thing that I wasn't prepared for was the physical aspect of the fitting (working from home has taken a toll on my physical fitness). It's been awhile since I've just hit ball after ball after ball like that. When I practice, I might hit 15-20 balls over a period of 45 minutes, with lots of conscious thought and feel rehearsals between each ball. In the end all of the options that I tested performed similarly better than my current set, so I went with the set that I preferred the look and feel/sound of the best.
    • Will the music be like when they play AC/DC between plays in College Football? Maybe have a marching band between the front & back nine? And we watch the Masters to see the beer commercials?
