    Good gob, if some of you guys consider yourself average Joe's I shouldn't even be on here.



    I'm currently trying to cure my flipping, so my 150 club is a 32* 7i for now.

    I would pull a 9 iron from 150 in perfect conditions (no wind) at my elevation (700 feet) in the summer months. That would be a very well struck, stock 9 iron. I can step on a 9 and get about 155 out of it, but consistency in dispersion drops a good bit.

    In true golfwrx fashion... I'd pull my titleist bullseye putter... 3 degrees of loft... choke down on it.... hit a cut with just enough juice to bring it back 9 feet to spot it 150 yards.

    Hah! You'd do this once. The Bullseye is so soft, it would be bent all the way back (90 degrees) at the neck. I kind of wish I didn't know this first hand:)

    For me, a stock swing with my 8 iron is a comfortable 150. If I step on the gas, I can power a 9 iron there, or if I dial it down, it can be a 7 iron. If I need to punch under the wind, it's typically a 6 iron shot.



    My 8 iron is standard 39* Titleist MB loft.

    I am inbetween clubs. 9 (40deg) iron goes 145-147 and 8 (35deg) iron goes 155-157. So I guess a soft 8?

    Cobra AMP forged 7 iron or a TM RSi1 8 iron. I'm a little flippy, scoopy with my short irons and don't get much spin on them.

    I have super jacked irons (cg16) and am usually one club less than most playing partners and for me 150 is a smooth 8 iron. I think some of the posters here who hit pw or weak lofted 3/4 9 irons perhaps shouldn't be in the average joe forums.

    Considering the average drive is approximately 205 yards, the distances you are seeing here are well above the norm. A 150 yard club, extrapolating from the aforementioned, is a 5-iron for the average player.

    With me it is a 6 iron at sea level of course I am 60 years old hitting a 1980 Macgregor blade iron.



    In the case of the OP IMHO not too bad considering how long he has been playing




    Any posts in regards to yardages or distances, I always include the elevation.



    At just under 4,000' of elevation, Amp Cell Pro, Project X 6.0, 150 is just a little off a nine iron.



    I figure at sea level it would likely be a stock eight (I haven't played much at sea level so that's mostly speculation).

    Sea level



    everyday straight flat, no wind shot, 8 iron, 149 yards carry, +/-3 yards



    If I had 150 carry and flat.... it would be a well struck 8iron...without holding back



    If my life was hanging in the balance for 150carry.... yeah 7 iron....



    down wind, downhill, god willing, 9iron....and then I would usually miss the green anyway and chip wishing I didnt try and just used the 8iron in the first place.....

    Well, when the ball lands its usually 1/2 buried in the green. But I am no Average Joe, i just like posting here because there is not alot of correspondence in the LD lab. One of these days, when i get older i will have a low swing speed like you guys.

    That makes sense lol. A 52* wedge from 150 would have a ton of spin on it and hop out of its pitch mark regardless of how wet/Soft the greens are. You're right, you're no average joe.

    I have a couple that go 150:



    Thinned wedge



    Fatted 3i



    Chucked driver (thrown in anger)



    ...or the much rarer, well-struck 8 iron.
