An Efficient Alternative to Your “Long” Irons

For most golfers, the “long irons” are the most difficult clubs to hit. With 3, 4 and 5-irons, the longer shafts plus lower loft, allow less room for error.  Also, we tend to swing too hard when we use a “long iron”. Here are some suggestions that may help you improve your consistency in this part of your game:

  1. “Hybrids” have become a solution for most. These are a combination of Iron and “fairway metal”
  2. Players find that they are easier to “hit”, get the ball higher in the air than equivalent irons. Most pros carry at least one in their bags. 
  3. As always, swing smoothly; as they will carry the ball as far or farther, and give you more consistent good results.
