Woah! Nuked your gap wedge 160 😂 

The funny thing about that was I did that last week.  It had been dry.  This was a slight downhill approach about 125 out.  Perfect for that club to bounce short and roll out a little (flag in front).  Objective totally achieved except for sprinkler head with metal cap right at the front.  Hits that.  Bounces stupidly high over the green.  Hits downslope on backside and gets a nice kick and of course.....rollout.  So yeah.

 

I like the Garmin watch and app.  The club distances is a very powerful tool.  Once I got enough data, I am rarely short.  I don't overestimate anymore and don't try stupid vanity shots on the tail of the bell curve.  I go for the meaty part of the curve.  Best money I ever spent on golf.

At the Masters, average club used on 155 yard #12 is 9i. Most are above hole too. Tell me again how these guys hit a #7i only 172?

To venture a guess….most amateurs don’t have much yardage left on the table while the pros do.

Another way of saying the ams are swinging closer to 100% and less control.

I just took an old set of Rawling Penna Lite irons (I bought these new in 1987)  to the range today, pleasantly surprised that my 7 iron was going 150yrds when well struck but if I didn’t catch it right, it was dropping down to about 130-135yrds. Shaft is R300 and I think the 7iron is 38 degrees.

I played today, it was 90+ degrees and extremely humid. The ball was just carrying forever and then the fairways and greens were firm so it was taking a huge first bounce. 
 

if you ask me how far my 7-iron goes on a day like today, it would be some ridiculous number. Ask me again come January and it will be ridiculous in the other direction. 

From August 18, 2021 I will be away from GolfWRX for a while.

I am making the change to 99 DCI's 990B to help me with my hook. The 7 iron is 36 deg. Based on what I can tell I should be able to hit it 156 with an easy swing. My only goal with my irons and my & woods is to have my yardages covered from 125 to 205 so I don't have to hit anything other than a stock shot. My s.s. can reach over 110 with my 2 wood because I swing much harder of course.

Those are some nice looking irons.

It's funny, I started playing again 2½ years ago after a 27 Year hiatus and was ten yards shorter, 140 yard 7 iron 36°. Not surprising I'm 61.

All of a sudden, I'm back at 150 yard 7 iron and + ten on all my other irons. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason.

 

Same thing happened to me after 9 years, we got stronger or our swings improved or both.
