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:
- “Hybrids” have become a solution for most. These are a combination of Iron and “fairway metal”
- 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.
- As always, swing smoothly; as they will carry the ball as far or farther, and give you more consistent good results.
