    I carry a 51, 54 & 58.

    51 goes 120-125, and anything lower I usually use either a 1/2 or 3/4 SW.

    V much improving from 100 yards and in but not yet a strength of my game.

    Re: Club distances

    D: 220-250 (can roll out loads more if its not plugged)
    5W: 200 (fairly rarely and normally no better than my 7 wood)
    7W: 180-190
    9W: 165 (great height for stopping on greens)
    4i: Never hit full on, for hitting out of trees
    6i: 160
    7i: 150-160
    8i: 140
    9i: 130
    PW: 120
    52°: 100-110
    56°: 85
    60 : 60ish

    All carry distances, roll varies greatly on time of year.

    Re: Club distances

    Re these 'carry' distances, or total distance including run out?
    I've just had a bag session for carry and it's made quite a difference to my shot selection.

    Never done one of these before so here goes:
    My carry distances are are as follows.

    Sand wedge 100
    U (gap wedge) 110
    P Wedge 125
    9 Iron 135
    8 Iron 150
    7 Iron 160
    6 Iron 165 (Insert missing hence the small gap).
    5 Iron 185

    These clubs weren't measured on the bag test, so are approx total distances and not carry.

    G20 Hybrid 200
    5 Wood 210
    3 Wood up to 230
    Driver Not sure but about 240
    Handicap 13.5

    The ball travels further in warm air, it will run more on dry ground. In winter I lose 10-20yds and the ball lands with no roll. You have to adapt your distances come the chilly weather.

    If I had 125 to middle on a clear warm day I would be pulling my GW which is 51 degrees and fully expect to get there.

    Re: Club distances

    It doesn't matter how far you hit each club, the important thing is to choose the right club for the distance you want to go. One day it might be a 9, same distance on a different day it might be a 6.
