There’s a big reason why every golfer carries many different irons in their bag: a quality iron set will let you shoot from almost anywhere on the course. Long irons can be used as your driver on short par 3’s, while shorter irons are great for hitting from tight lies or for lobbing balls over hazards. Whatever your predicament, an iron can get you out of it! Find the golf irons you need to play at your best at Carl’s Golfland!
How To Pick the Right Irons
Modern irons are a complicated business, with every brand carrying multiple different models and using multiple different acronyms that can be hard to decipher. We want to make your buying experience as easy as possible, so here are a few simple tips to help you get the iron set that’s perfect for you:
Find the Correct Type of Irons
This doesn’t mean choosing a specific brand or picking a 2 iron over a 5 iron. There are two large types of golf irons: player irons and improvement irons.
- Player Irons are the least forgiving but provide the best response, trajectory, and carry distance for skilled golfers. Professional players and golfers with exceptionally low handicaps should be using player irons to get the best results.
- Improvement Ironsare designed to be much more forgiving. For players with high handicaps, a set of improvement irons will produce much better strokes and a lower overall score each round than player irons would.
So, pay attention to your handicap when choosing an iron set. Using clubs that match your skill level is what will allow you to continually play at your best and improve over time.
Use the Right Shaft For Your Swing
When choosing golf irons, you also want to choose the correct shaft flexibility for your playing style.
- If you have a low handicap and a very high swing speed, using a less flexible shaft will let you maximize the power and accuracy of each swing.
- For players with higher handicaps and lower swing speeds, golf irons with more flexible shafts will allow you develop greater force in your swing and give you better distance.
