Golf irons are the essence of a set of golf clubs. Two thirds of the shots in a normal round of golf will utilize an iron. Irons are used to hit the golf ball off the ground from distances of 125 yards to 225 yards. Each iron is assigned a number based upon the loft angle of the club head. The 9-iron has the most loft, a shorter shaft, and is used to hit short, high shots. A 2-iron has very little loft, a longer shaft, and is used to hit low, long shots.
The golfer has the choice of 2 primary types of golf club irons. For the more experienced golfer, forged irons are mad for precision and enable easier shaping of shots for draws and fades. Cavity-backed golf irons have a larger sweet spot and are more forgiving on off-center shots, providing straighter shots. A set of golf irons consisting of 2 through 9, a sand wedge and a pitching wedge, would range in price from $250 to over $1,500. Discount golf irons can provide great savings and are sometimes referred to as knockoff golf irons or clone golf irons.
Acculength... Kids Golf Club Innovation. An alternative to purchasing different clubs as kids grow comes from the one-of-a-kind, innovative company called Acculength, winner on Golf Digest's Hot List in 2009. Company representatives state their products are the only clubs that grow with kids. Each club accommodates up to 4 (one-inch long) spacers directly beneath the grip. The company offers a lifetime warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee. Starter sets, including four clubs and the bag, range in price from $139.99 - $179.99 USD.
Always test the clubs out before purchasing them. You never know how they will feel to you. Sometimes the shaft is too thick or too narrow for your grip, making it difficult to hold the clubs comfortably. Remember that the grips are something that can easily be changed. Most avid golfers need to replace the grips yearly. Men's golf clubs are designed to fit men whose height is 5' 10". If your height varies considerably from this standard you may need to get your clubs customized. Club fitting is getting clubs custom sized to your specific needs. A golf pro helps determine your measurements.
