Iv never really hit all my clubs on a trackman or anything, but thinking of doing this soon and trying to figure out exactly what I carry/hit each club. a guy i golfed with the other day had done this and made little stickers he has on each shaft of each club with his carry and rollout distances and I thought it was kinda cool.

that being said, i have a rough idea of my distances per club, but im not 100% sure... i was curious if there is any NEW tests done that have the average male club distances?

it doesn't matter how far you hit your clubs, just that you know how far each one goes. with a good ballflight and accurate, repeatable distances you can play this game as good as anyone else, it's not about distance.

i agree with that completely. i am not a long hitter, i pride myself on being accurate. that is why my driver and most clubs are even cut down a little shorter.

but im curious what average is, i often come up short or fly greens, which is why i want to do the trackman thing and get an exact distance for myself.

i think with all these new clubs with jacked up lofts its pretty tough to get an average anymore!  i play forged blades abd hit my 8 iron 165ish... i was playing with a high hcpr last week who was using burner irons and his 9 iron the same distance..  i borrowed his club and hit his 9 iron around 180

so without everyine using the same lofts its hard to say!

The current set of Bridgestone ad's are interesting in that they portray average golfers with a driver SS of over 100mph and carrying the ball 240+ yards.

the first part of that sentence has nothing to do with the second part.

if you want to find your distances for your clubs, go out with a rangefinder or gps and measure your shots. this is something everyone should do and figure out.

if you want to know what other people are hitting, there is no real answer, nor should you really care. but if it interests you so much, then go ahead and ask every single person you play with. i'm sure you'll get the gist soon enough.

The distance calc is right on for me... I play with older gentlemen and we are all about 7 handicappers and they play 3 wood, 3 hybrid and I play a 5 iron, all to the same par three of 200 yards...Everyones distances are different... I , myself play an 8 iron to 155 yards and base all other irons off this club...

Interesting how it states my 7w goes as far as my 4i which goes as far as my 4h. It's basically saying I'm carrying 3 clubs that go the same distance.

Amazing calculator, had my distances near perfect!
Considering we hit the same club with varying swing speed and style based on weather conditions, lie and the seriousness of the round (probably a little more adrenaline in competition), I think its definitely better to have a rough idea of how far you hit the ball.

Just my 0.02

Whow!!! That calculator is awesome...it got my 5 iron right on the nose...:clapping:

.Oh yeah...I told it that distance...everything else is off by  a huge amount...If I used those distances during a round, I would never hit a green in reg. again.

Release the HO!  Go get a new one, that's what any good WRX'er would do......

Seriously, it was pretty spot on for me too.  It was fun to play with the settings as well.  Now if I just get in shape, and take more lessons I can pick up 5 - 7 yards!  Is 5 - 7 yards worth the lack of beer?  Probably not.....

LOL,,I had the same issue as you!
My 5-iron average distance is 195 yds. The calculator had the rest of my irons pretty close within 3-5 yards but it had my Driver at 300 yards. My average is closer to 280 yards. In the right conditions I can get one out there at the 300 mark but it's no where near my average. It may be that I don't use a juiced up RBZ type Driver. I have a tour model that's a half inch shorter so maybe with a RBZ or Burner I could boost up my average closer to 300. That's OK though, I'll take my 280 from the fairway over 300 from the woods :)

I was the same other then the driver too.  I think I can easily account that to my driver swing over the calculator.

7 wood and 4h are the equivelent to a 4 iron in overall distance, generally. Trajectory may differ greatly among the 3. Theoretically the 4h should be the easiest to hit, followed by the 7w. And finally the 4 iron which normally also flights the lowest with the greatest run out. ( more true with blade mb's than GI or SGI irons).

My 9-iron and PW distances were a club or so short I thought but, heck yes, other than that the calculator was great! It said a strong shot with my 13* (2w) would have been 276....That's EXACTLY what my GPS told me I hit it the other day, lol! I got to 275 and it was still a few feet in front of me. My driver yardages were accurate, too--about 285 with 290+ on the strong side.

Impressive!

I put in 185 for the 5-iron yardage, btw.

Wind conditions, slope of the terrain, air density and temperature etc... all significantly  influence golf shot carry distance.
For an uphill shot with hurting wind, on a cold morning, a Tour pro might need a 7-iron to carry the ball 135 yards.
That same player, from an elevated tee box, playing a downhill shot on a warm afternoon, with a breeze nehind him, might carry a 7-iron 235 yards.
So, the 7-iron alone, depending on conditions,  could have as much as 100 yard carry distance difference.

I actually used this distance calculator, printed it out, and laminated it so I know my yardages. It goes in my back pocket during rounds and I pull it out when I am not sure what to use. I have no lazer finder or gps. Something I REALLY need to do is get my exact distances but this calculator has been reeeeally great for me. Fires at pins.

Driver distance as many have said is off for me as well. Off by 10-15 yards.

That is a really good idea, that distance calculator is almost spot on.
