Isn't this kinda bs Im sure he can hit a 2 iron 260 but 300 really really?

Not with how GI irons are being made today. Lower CG, club faces designed more like drivers. 

I tried out the Ping Crossover. Which looks like a driving iron. The 3 crossover is 18 degrees of loft. So basically in the 7-wood range. I hit that 260 yards on a few shots. It's basically more loft and shorter club length than my 2 hybrid.

Yeah, they're basically hybrids/fairway woods without the crown. The M2s launch easier than just about any hybrid.

Take a look at the lofts, they are jacked big time.  The 3 iron is probably equal to a 1 iron on older sets, plus longer shaft.  

You do realize there is a lot more to iron design than length and loft right?

I believe it. DJ drove a 290 green with an iron last year.

No doubt these guys are long! I have however tried all game improvement irons and they do go farther but it's like 15 yards. I have hit my 7 iron max 172 yards it's a mizuno mp-67 probably one degree stronger because of wear and tear. I hit a callaway 7 with a speed step shaft graphite maxed out say 188 to 192 crushed, But it's really just a 6 iron with higher launch  and plays just like my 5 iron so I chose to not play these clubs. So logically speaking this means say Day here is using a 4 iron and nailed it 295 this means his normal 4 iron goes 268 .. This is Jamie sadlowski distances I just don see it I see day and DJ hitting 3-5 irons 215 to 238.

No, he hit it 295 :-P

Like others have said, the iron is basically a hybrid. In addition they might have had a lighter shaft in the club and counted how far the ball ran out. Not saying it isn't impressive but I can believe it.

With day it's possible he has such a big swing,but doesn't he hit his 3 wood that far you know 15 degrees.

Well the M2 4-iron is 19° so if they might have given him a 3-iron that's 17 or 16°.

    • Trying to slow down the effects of aging in my golf game by improving my technique and equipment to its full potential
    • I know her! Her name is Karen. 😄
    • I heard somewhere a long time ago that good players always put their putter and driver together.  Well, doing that didn’t make me a better golfer but now I’m self conscious about that.
    • Hi Cammy - I’m not an instructor, but just noticed a couple things. At the top, it looks like you may be pulling down a bit with the hands without the body weight shifting forward. And also standing up a bit just before impact with the ball. Just a thought. Others may have better advice than me. I’m learning too. Great job though, considering how long you have been playing. Keep it up! 
    • The main issue with golf is time.  When my job and other responsibilities allowed me to play at least once per week and practice in between, I could play consistently in the high 80s.  But as a weekend golfer it’s tough to maintain enough consistency to stay in the low 90s.  Adding age to the equation makes maintaining consistency even more difficult.  It’s still a fun game if you manage your expectations realistically.
