Using the ball speed to swing speed calculator below, you can convert your standard yardages for each of your clubs to find your approximate swing speed and ball speed.
I’ve always been interested in the physics of golf and the different speeds that different club lengths and lofts can produce. And if you’ve ever wondered how hard you need to swing a pitching wedge to hit it 200 yards, now you can! Just select the club from the drop down menu and enter a distance of 200 yards to get the calculation, which is a whopping 122 MPH of club head speed! Not that it’s a practical calculation to make for your golf game or anything, but it is fun to play with the numbers.
Golf Ball Speed to Swing Speed Conversion Chart
Using stats from the 2020 PGA Tour I was able to determine the approximate conversion rate between swing speed or club head speed and the ball speed of the golf ball when it leaves the face of your club. This is based on average stats over the 2020 PGA Tour season.
