As a new golfer, I spend just about all my time with my golf clubs at the driving range. Last year when I first started, I would basically go play “whack-a-ball”. I’d take my friend’s clubs out, pick out a club that seemed fun at the time and just whack-a-ball until I got bored and wanted to use a different club. I am a competitive person though, so I want to get the most out of my practice time.
My interest in golf started with golf computer games and video games, so I’m used to knowing the range of each club in my bag. Unfortunately, in real life I don’t get a little display that tells me how far the ball will fly if I use my 9-iron. So I decided to find a chart I could take with me to the driving range to record the distances for each club. I found a couple charts that told me what the average distance for each club, but I’m not average. I’m much worse than average. I wanted something I could fill out myself. I couldn’t find any, so I made my own:
I created the chart as a PDF to make it easier to print. To download the PDF version, click here. I hope it helps you as much as I hope it helps me!
(This is version 1 of my Golf Club Distance Chart, so if you have any ideas or suggestions let me know and I’ll make a new version.)
