Golf Club Iron Types: How are They Different?

There are many golf club iron types available on the market today. Choosing the right one for your game can be difficult. In this blog post, the Indian River Golf Foundation will discuss the different types of golf club irons and when to use them. We will also provide tips on how to select the suitable golf club iron for your needs. Forged Irons We make forged golf club irons from a single piece of steel. They are designed for golfers who consistently swing the ball in the center of the clubface more often than not. Forged irons offer more control and accuracy than other types of golf club irons. Cast Irons We make cast golf club irons from molten steel poured into a mold. We design them for golfers with a higher handicap and needing more forgiveness on their shots. Cast iron clubs are more suitable for multi-material, perimeter weighted, and intricate irons. At the same time, they are also cheaper than forged irons. Designs of Irons Irons come in all different shapes and sizes. Some golfers prefer a particular type of golf club iron based on their golfing style. Blade Irons Blade irons are the smallest and thinnest golf club irons. They offer more control and accuracy than other types of golf club irons. Blade irons have a thin face and top line with a tight impact area. The weight in a blade is evenly distributed to make a small "sweet spot" with the ability to better feel the shots you make with the iron. Cavity Back Irons Cavity back irons have a large cavity in the back of the clubface. The added weight makes it easier for less experienced golfers to make their shots due to increased Moment of Inertia (MOI). We design them for golfers who need more forgiveness for their shots. This design effectively means that off-center shots will go farther and fly straighter than with a blade iron. Sets of Irons Retailers usually sell irons in sets of up to nine clubs. Each set contains golf clubs with different loft angles. According to the club's loft, the manufacturer numbers all irons in the set. Long irons are 2, 3, and 4, mid-irons are 5, 6, and 7, and short irons are 8, 9, and wedges like the Pitching Wedge, Gap or Attack Wedge, and the Sand Wedge. Hybrid Sets of Irons Hybrid sets of…
