Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 Assistant Designer Justin Patel (known in the community as HANDSWARD) has posted several tables breaking down the club distances, maximum pitch/flop distances, chip distances, and boost benefit.
I've seen a lot of talk about club distances so I figured I would chime in. Yes, we did reduce club distances this year. We mainly got into how much the club tuner was adding to the distances and we have scaled that back. Here is a chart that shows the club distances at 3 different stages.
1) A brand new golfer with 10 swing speed and 0% power in club tuner.
2) A maxed golfer with 100 swing speed and 0% power in club tuner.
3) A maxed golfer with 100 swing speed and 100% power in club tuner.
This should give everyone a good idea on how far the golfer hits the ball and how much further shots go after tuning your clubs.
Post in this thread at the EA Forums with any questions you may have. Please keep all questions on the topic of club distances and club tuner.
