A smooth 5 wood.

Anywhere from LW to 9i. Completely depends on the lie, the flag position, the wind, the green speed, etc.

You and I have the same distances basically but I do not carry a 52 only 47 PW and 56 SW. I flight mine down a lot and also hit a high cut 9 iron too. And we carry the same lofts on the respective clu

Depends on the situation. Anywhere from 8, 9, PW, GW(50*) or SW(54*). Full shot: SW(54*).

I have been struggling with that distance as of late with temperatures in the upper 40's. Normally, 50 degree is my standard 100 yards if I don't get too steep. 46 degrees is my 115 in a standard CB or blade. 105 to 110 has been killing me. Ready for some warmer temps and see if my distances normalize along with some touch with 3/4 wedges to max and slightly closed wedges if I need a little extra.

FWIW:61 years old and Driver SS 99 and change.

I have a weak PW at 49*, I’ll choke down 3/4” or even down to almost the steel shaft. I’ll know the ball will get all the way there to the intended yardage but it will flight down with less spin.

Rarely am I forced to hit a high shot with tons of spin to a table top so in most cases, it’s like throwing darts into the green.

the thing with hard SW and even GW, is that the ball can still upshot up the face and you end up short most of the time. I’d rather turn over a draw with a SW in this case.

Hard 54* or choke down 50* depending on the conditions. I'll occasionally use my PW as well. Most of the time it's my 50*.

We have the same issue, I see! LOL

If I hit a full GW (100-105) it spins a lot, the PW (110-115) can go a little long.

I've spent the past year laying up to 100yrds on most longer par 5's only to screw up my approach......stupid game!

Found myself sitting on 120-125 and 105-110 a lot last season and changed my wedges setup this year accordingly. Was going 50 - 130 and 54 - 115. So I switched to 52 - 125 and 56 - 110. Gives me the ability to take more full/fuller swings. So last year I would've told you a 54* with a 9 o'clock swing from 110 yards. This year it's a full 56*.
