Iron distances, am I hitting it too far?


Recommended Posts

I’m currently playing mizuno mp-h4 irons with s300 shafts and have been since spring 2017. Every year I seem to hit the ball longer and longer. My normal carry distance I expect from a 7 iron would be in the neighborhood of 195. My highest lofted club my 58* lob wedge is around my 125 club. At last check my driver club head speed was approaching 120. I feel like I the distance I’m hitting the ball may be hurting my game. I’m wondering if I’m having an issue getting too much lag on the club head and taking loft off causing these numbers or if I have another swing mechanic that causes this.

Margot Robbie won't stop texting me, guys. I keep telling her I'm not interested but she won't leave me alone. HELP. 

Too many beautiful women just hanging out in my living room ....

The best part about this thread is learning that I can post all of my future trolling questions anonymously as a "guest".

Hard to know if they yardages are too much without knowing your launch angles, spin, peak heights, and angles of descent.
When it comes to irons, it is about the full package of numbers rather than just the carry distance.

No such thing as too far unless you can't hit and hold greens. If you're distance and accuracy isn't consistent, then all that length isn't good for anything other than long drive contests.

Definitely too much lag. Lots of threads on how you can get less. ;-)
Kind of hard to take this seriously at first glance, but agree - post up a vid of the swing and that should reveal whether the ss numbers are approaching being accurate and whether how you are getting there may be or may not be an issue. If it's real distance, don't see how it could be hurting your game since you don't identify any negative results.

I have to see how this one turns out.

Glove: ML
Tees: 2 3/4
Towel: white
Repair tool: metal
Ball Marker: largest poker chip in the world
Iron headcovers: wait, what?

The feedback system is annoying

Okay, I’ll bite: what exactly IS your problem? Can’t you just practice partial shots for everything under 125? Nothing wrong with being a long hitter, your post just comes across as a not-so-humblebrag, so could you tell us what’s the actual issue?

Not sure what too far means? Too far to reach the hole on every shot. Too far to shooting lights out and qualifying in tournaments. Distance dont mean as much if you done have the second part of that equation into the hole.
