Distance depends on numerous factors but rest assured there are no "general distances", even on tour every player hits each club a different distance Tiger can hit his sand wedge 127 and AK 112 (Source :Tee it up with Tiger and AK). Therefore hit the range and dial it in.

Which golf clubs do professionals use?

Golf professionals use clubs from a variety of manufacturers and are each tailored to each individual to suit their specific individual body type and swing. There is an awful lot to be gained by having a correctly fitted set of clubs, something all pros but not all amateur golfers take advantage of. Most Pros will then select 13 clubs from a pool for possibly 18 clubs (Golfers may only carry 14 clubs, and virtually all serious players will carry a putter!) specifically for the course they are playing on that particular day. They select the clubs that will provide the best combination of clubs taking into consideration trajectory, carry, overall distance, spin rate, feel at impact, course setup and hazards, but it's essentially the clubs they think that will enable them to shoot the lowest score possible for that round! List of clubs modern pros (incl. women) typically use; Driver (1W) 2-Wood 3-Wood 4-Wood 5-Wood 7-Wood 2- Hybrid 3-Hybrid 4-Hybrid 5-Hybrid 2-iron 3-iron 4-iron 5-iron 6-iron 7-iron 8-iron 9-iron Pitching Wedge Attack Wedge Gap Wedge Sand Wedge Lob Wedge High Lob Wedge Putter Not all clubface lofts are universal between clubs marked the same. The lofts vary between individual clubs and manufacturers. ie - XYZ PW has 46 degrees of loft whilst ABC PW has 48 degrees.
