Hi All,

Newcomer to forums here, first post, though I have read a great deal. I am a 20 year old 0.7 Handicap Golfer and was curious as to why my driver distance tends to fall in comparison with my other clubs' distances. My irons and Hybrid/Wood are on par with tour averages, I will list them for you here below:
PW-4 Iron Starting at 150 Yards and going up 9.5 Yards
PW 150
9 Iron 160
8 Iron 169
7 Iron 179
6 Iron 188
5 Iron 198
4 Iron 207
4 Hybrid (Same loft, RBZ Stage 2 Tour goes much further than iron) 225
3 Wood (RBZ Stage 2 Again) 245-255
Driver 260 (New M1)

Now, I am hitting it further with my recently purchased m1, probably closer to a 275 average, however I was just curious as to if there is a reason I simply just don't get the distance out of the driver as I do the other clubs? As stated before, those distances are relatively on par with PGA Tour averages, until getting to the driver. Would this be a certain type of swing that I have causing it? Any input much appreciated, this is a great community. Thanks!

Well PGA tour averages also have rock hard fairways to make guys hit it obscene distances. 275 is not bad at all
Enjoy the chase.

It's not all that strange for a player to have a club that fails to perform as the rest of the bag. Sometimes it's more than one. I suggest you check the club measurements as to lie angle, actual loft and shaft length. Likewise, see if the shaft flex suits you pr is off by just a little. Sometimes we just can't feel it though more often we can. If none of these things are wrong, look for a club that feels more right.

New guys don't always progress equally or evenly. Trust me but there really are times the guy's mind is wrong and gets even more wrong with a club. Not much can be done about that but to go through the numbers and steps and look for the wrong.

Do you know what your attack angle for your driver is? You should be much longer with your driver. If you have a descending angle with your driver it will cause more backspin with causes less distance. Tour avg for the driver is like +2.  Daniel Berger weighs like 150 pounds but his attack angle is +4.
old saying is hit down on your irons and up with your driver.

the tour average is actually around -1 and Berger weighs 175 pounds

This is true.  Brandel Chamblee was actually correct with his Twitter argument with Rory.  Tour average attack angle with driver is -1.3.
