Swing Thoughts

kinda a weird tidbit here but interested to see what some people think. I would say I hit my irons an above average distance (7 iron carries 170+). My clubhead speed with driver hovers around 110 sometimes a little lower so I know I have the speed; However, taking all this into account even my flushest driver hits does not go beyond average like my irons do. I'm interested to see what explanation there may be to being able to strike my irons well, but have average distance with the longer clubs. I feel the distance does not go up proportionally with my 3 wood and driver.

    I'm sticking with the thread title in my response.



    My thought is to not be standing too close to the ball after I hit it.

    Something is causing higher dynamic launch and spin with your longer clubs, is my wild guess.



    Check your ball position, too far away, close, forward, or back can kill your distances. I have a tendency to set my driver too far forward making me reach a little, causing casting and higher launch/spin.



    Make sure your club head is square to the target at address. Having a slightly open driver at address adds loft.



    Hope this helps.

    I swing driver 110 as well; you should be hitting 300-yard drives regularly. How far is your average drive?

    300 Carry? or high 200's with a roll to 300? Big differences there that may need to be clarified to prevent a miscommunication/inflated expectations. In theory - Trackman says 108 is the minimum swing speed in neutral conditions with optimal launch conditions... but this includes a roll out.

    I'm carrying around 270 with my driver flight path seems a little lower than it should be.

    170 7 iron carry and 270 driver carry seem right in line with where they should be.



    How far do you think you should be carrying driver?

    I would tend to agree with Jeff. Do you know your AoA? I would say that if anything your iron distance is a touch longer leading me to believe you have a slightly steeper angle of attack but those yardages are solid and above average mind you.

    270 is more than perfect. No need to worry.
