It depends on the person swinging the Golf club. Distance is created by combining clubhead speed, launch angle, and squareness of impact(efficiency). Therefore clubs are hit different distances depending on the person playing the shot. A good starting point is a golf club distance calculator at http://www.csgnetwork.com/golfclubdistancecalce.html Each iron typically differs in loft by 4 degrees in the short irons and 3 degrees in the long irons. Men typically have a 8 - 12 yard distance gap between each club. Women typically have a 6 - 10 yard distance gap between each club. To find out how far you hit each club take your irons to the driving range and verify the yardage to each flag (either with a distance range finder or by walking the distance). You should be recording carry distance with your irons, not total distance. With each club in your bag hit 10 good shots and note where they land. Then take the average of this group of balls as the distance you hit that club and record that as the maximum distance you should attempt a shot with that club. Most amatuers hit their shots short so over clubbing usually isn't that bad of a thing. If you don't want to take the time to hit range shots to determine each clubs distance then use the following guide as a starting point. If you notice you overshoot or undershoot the hole with good shots then you need to adjust the distance accordingly. 56 degree SW - 85 yards

52 degree SW - 95 yards

48 degree PW - 105 yards

9 IR - 115 yards

8 IR - 125 yards

7 IR - 135 yards

6 IR - 145 yards

5 IR - 155 yards

4 HYBRID - 170 yards

3 HYBRID - 180 yards

5 Metal - 190 yards

3 Metal - 200 yards

Driver - 220 yards So if you have 115 yards to the pin you should use a 9 iron; if you have 116 yards you should use the 8 iron.

### What is the general distances golf clubs should hit a golf ball?

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. A simpler but not fool proof method is the following: You will pretty much have a 10-15 yrd distance gap between clubs,so take your pitching wedge and add 10-15 yrd and that is your 9 iron another 10-15 yrds and that's your 8iron and so on.
