Strange relations PW vs Driver
When i was at Mitchell Golf Equipment Institute, we often tried to measure the relations between the driver and the #6 iron since the #6 was common as "fitting club", and used the factor 80% for club speed, but the varieties to that is HUGE, but for some strange reason i cant explain, there seems to be a more constant relation on both Club speed, Ball speed and Carry from the PW to the Driver. i have gone over quite a few different Trackman reports, and notice that when we compare PW to Driver all this 3 factors seems to line up rather constantly with not much differences to this factors as all. PS! The PW used is 46* to 48* on loft, so if your PW is stronger, this numbers might be off. If we have a PW with loft like a players #9 iron, the factor for Carry drops to 1.85 from PW to Driver.
CLUB SPEED - PW x 1.35 = Driver Club speed
BALL SPEED - PW x 1.63 = Driver Ball speed
CARRY YRD - PW x 2.03 = Driver Carry as yards
How does this looks like for your bag?
Many dont know club speed or ball speed on their clubs, but average Carry should be known, and it seems like we can say PW carry x 2 = Driver Carry.
