What do the back tees have to do with how far the ball goes?

I hit my 7-wood about 180 yds, so this is probably the only number here that
I would trust.

Maybe this has something to do with the mushrooms Peter Strauss was talking
about?

 7 wood:  n/a

 3 iron:  185-220 yds
 4 iron:  170-200 yds
 5 iron:  160-175 yds
 6 iron:  155-165 yds
 7 iron:  145-150 yds
 8 iron:  135 yds
 9 iron:  125 yds
 pw 47*:      90-100 yds
 gap 50*:      70-90 yds
 sw 54*:      50-80 yds

 Average gross score:  96

still working on clean contact.

And yours is the lesson I'm trying to teach myself.  I can break 90
(usually) but feel that breaking 80 should be easily attainable, it's
just about learning the lesson about straight!

Driver: 10-290y.  I always get at least 10 yards out of it
3W: 5-240y.  bounceups from a topped 3 wood just don't go that far, Weird

3i - 100-210.  I skull this one quite often, but it goes 100 yards at least.

all the rest... who cares about I hate hitting anything less than a 3i, who
cares how far I hit my pitching wedge.....really!

ROTFL!

I think we all have those shots in our bags; (Maybe some of us need a
severe downhill to make the 290, but other than that you are right on!

That's odd....my yardages are the same regardless of which tees I'm
playing...

I keep a club by my front door.  I'd say it's about 12 feet.

Is this to practice swinging or sucking?

A thread from a couple of years ago established that RSGers putting average
was around 1.7 or lower.
So, having a better putting average and being longer on every club than
almost all tour golfers, you have to ask where do the 20 plus strokes that
mysteriously appear between the drive and the putting green come from?

My guess is alien ***.

I stopped by the course at lunch today and practiced putting for awhile.  We
have a nice practice green.  It's shaped like a large L with lots of slope on
parts of it.  It would make a "great" area for practicing the types of chips I
find myself with on the course.  But there's that big sign saying "No Chipping."
We do, however, have a flat, small, perfectly circular green for chipping.  

Before the course renovations, we had a nice practice bunker but not very many
bunkers on the course.  They added lots of bunkers to the course, but they took
out the practice bunker when they enlarged the practice tee.  So I tend to
struggle when I find myself in sand.  Guess I need to take my shag bag to the
beach.  Meanwhile the course manager is happy because people are paying for
those buckets of balls--no revenue stream for short game practice.  Arrrggghhhh!

Well, the rest of us don't end up in sand traps of course.
