With apologies to Leslie Nielsen and Golf Digest, I can't find the issue
that had this, so I'm improvising:
Woods: 7 = 180, 5 = 200, 3 = 200, 1 = 160.
Irons: 9 = 120, 8 = 130, 7 = 140, 6 = 150, 5 = 150, 4 = 140, 3 = 125.
Wedges: PW = 100, Approach W = 80, Lob W = 60, Sand W = 175.
You probably haven't been playing long enough to get the joke yet. :-)
About one-half the distance that most people claim to hit a club.
Same comment applies. :-)
