Different types of irons

Irons are the most versatile clubs in a golfer’s bag. They can be used for a wide range of shots, including approach shots, shots from the rough, and shots from fairway bunkers. 

In a standard golf club set, you’ll find irons ranging from 3 to 9. The lower-numbered irons are intended for long-distance shots, whereas the higher-numbered ones are employed for precise, shorter shots. Yet, due to the greater challenge posed by the lower-numbered irons compared to the higher-numbered ones, a growing trend is emerging among golfers. Many are opting to exchange their 3 and 4 irons for 7 and 9 woods for improved ease and performance.

We have several different irons for you to choose from to ensure that your clubs suit you. With brands such as Callaway, Mizuno, Ping, Titleist, Taylormade and everything in between, we are sure to have the right driver for you.

How to choose the best iron for you

The first and – arguably – most important element of choosing the right iron for you is determining which type of iron will best suit your game. This can be tricky. The sheer number of different brands and types on the market is enough to confuse even a golf professional. However, don’t be fooled into thinking that buying the same make and model as your favourite players will propel you to world number one.

By all means, this can help you in your decision-making process, but focus on the clubs that cater to your requirements, not Rory McIlroy’s. 

Take notice of the grip thickness and the shaft length and flex. These factors will all have an impact on how well the club works for you. 

Grip thickness plays a significant role in your swing, and finding the right balance is key. If the grip is too thin, it can result in exaggerated hand movements during your swing. An overly thick grip can stifle your hand movements, which is equally detrimental. To achieve the ideal grip, aim to hold the club with your left hand’s middle and ring fingers, with minimal contact between your thumb pad and the club. If your fingers can’t comfortably reach your thumb, it’s a clear sign that the grip is too large for you.

Select a shaft length that works for your height, body type and physical strength. Generally, taller players need irons with a longer shaft length.

As well as this, it’s important to take into account the shaft flex and how well it matches your swing. Opting for a shaft that’s overly stiff can lead to a lower ball flight and decreased distance, while a shaft that’s too soft might cause the ball to balloon, again resulting in a loss of distance.

Your golf experience will also impact heavily on your choice of driver. Blade irons, for example, prioritise feel and feedback over forgiveness and distance. These clubs are often forged from a single piece of metal, delivering an exceptional level of touch. However, they may not provide the same level of forgiveness or distance as other irons. Because of this, blade irons are a top choice for elite and tour-level players.

Game improvement irons, on the other hand, have a bigger clubhead and are crafted to be more user-friendly, catering to golfers with higher handicaps who might require additional assistance in launching the ball effectively.
