Rory McIlroy

The insane distance McIlroy hits each of his clubs

See how your yards stack up against the best golfer on the planet
 

Since bursting onto the scene over a decade ago, Rory McIlroy has consistently been one of the biggest hitters on the PGA Tour and DP World Tour.

Frequently bombing his driver over 320 yards to the amazement of everyone, there’s few golfers on the planet who can match what the newly crowned World No 1 produces off the tee.

But have you ever wondered how far McIlroy hits the other golf clubs in his TaylorMade bag?

Well, thanks to our good friends over at the California-based brand, now we know. And from the sand wedge up to the big stick, McIlroy’s stock yardages are just as insane as you might expect. Just feast your eyes on this…

Simply not fair. Here’s the full line-up of Rory McIlroy’s stock distances, with the missing clubs estimated based on some NCG math and some poking around on Twitter (shout out to The McIlroy Legion).

Rory McIlroy stock yardages

Driver: 320+ yards
3-wood: 300 yards
5-wood: 275 yards
3-iron: 260 yards
4-iron: 240 yards
5-iron: 225 yards
6-iron: 210 yards
7-iron: 195 yards
8-iron: 180 yards
9-iron: 165 yards
Pitching wedge (46°): 150 yards
Sand wedge (54°): 125 yards
Lop wedge (58°): 105 yards

A quick reminder that these are also carry distances. Just insane.

So with all this in mind, how do McIlroy’s stock yardages stack up against the biggest hitter in the world of golf right now, Bryson DeChambeau? Well just to make you feel a little more inferior, here’s how the American fares in the battle in the bombers…

Better get down the gym ASAP.
