Right. But that's not going to be linear across every golfer.  And his misses may not be as bad as the OP either. That's no different than taking my experience into consideration which is on the longer end of potential distance gained. For that matter, I have hit an over the top cut mishit with my 7i that went about 150 and then turn around and hit a solid in to out baby draw 7i that went about 175.  There is not enough data to compare the two. I'm simply stating that it is very possible that he could gain more than 10. I'm not saying it's a for sure thing, but I'm saying it's a very good possibility.

Less skilled golfers than him will likely gain less.

He’s scratch, so it’s very likely that he’d see the highest gains across different amateur skill levels.

Most will likely see a lot less than 10 in carry.

The launch angle, spin, dynamic loft and AoA will see a good difference at the same swing speeds though...

Here's how I see it. If you're coming OTT and chopping down on the ball, hitting pulled slices or pop ups, and otherwise wasting a lot of ball movement in the wrong directions, getting your swing on the proper plane couldn't do anything other than get you increased distance as well as better directional control!
