It's great to see that so many people are wanting to give golf a go and participation levels look like they will drastically increase once again this year, so continue spreading the word and let's get more people into golf!
If you are new to the sport, you might be thinking about treating yourself to a set of irons, but you're a little confused as to what ones are best for you.
Well it depends on a number of things, but if you're willing to invest in a brand new set, then there are some phenomenal game-improvement irons on the market that will help you hit the ball further with your irons, while also offer you plenty of forgiveness for mishit shots.
We've listed a few of our favourite game-improvemnent irons that we know can really help all you new golfers out there.
TaylorMade SIM2 MAX Irons
The back of the new TaylorMade SIM2 Max iron looks substantially different to the first model and has been constructed using a brand-new multi-material cap back design. High strength stainless steel has been blended with ultra-lightweight polymers to maximise energy transference and the result is an iron that offers unparalleled distance with great forgiveness and a new softer feel.
All New Multi Material Cap Back Design; Incredible performance & Forgiveness; Produces Drop & Stop Ball Flight Through Extremely Low CG Placement; Echo Dampening System Produces Enhanced Feel at Impact.
Callaway Rogue X Irons - OVER 50% OFF!
With new Callaway models now availble, you can get the Callaway Rogue X irons for more than 50% less than the RRP!
Rogue X Irons are a total distance overhaul, with Callaway's 360 Face Cup and VFT, multi-material construction, Urethane Microspheres, and a component package designed for maximum distance. Tungsten Weighting allows Callaway to position the CG in each of the long irons with extraordinary precision, promoting optimum launch and control at each individual loft. The tungsten, twice as heavy as steel, concentrates significant weight into a small space in the form of an intricately shaped part, which is key to precisely controlling CG location.
Callaway Mavrik MAX Irons - £190 OFF!
Another phenomenal game-improvement iron from Callaway, ideal for beginners, which you can now buy for £190 less than the RRP!
Callaway created a sophisticated face architecture that’s unique to every loft, so they can create a significant boost in ball speed and increased spin robustness off of every iron. And ball speed is further enhanced by Callaway's 360 Face Cup that flexes and releases at impact. The custom tungsten-infused weights in each iron allow us to locate the position of the CG in each iron with extraordinary precision while still maintaining ball speed in the Flash Face Cup. This promotes optimum launch and ball flight through the set, from strong lofts and player preferred trajectory, spin rates, and land angles.
Cobra RADSPEED ONE Length - Graphite Shafts
If a 7-iron is the most comfortable club for you to hit, then Cobra's ONE Length irons are the ideal game-improvement iron!
The Cobra RADSPEED iron derives its name from the new Radial Technology used in its construction, and this groundbreaking construction method has a hugely beneficial effect on performance. By using a strategic placement of weight relative to the clubhead’s centre of gravity Cobra have created a golf club that optimises both ball speed and forgiveness. With more mass placed extremely low in the heel and toe sections (the furthest point from the CG), the RADSPEED iron brings a stability that has never been seen before. The Cobra RADSPEED irons are huge advancement in golf club design and look set to be one of the most forgiving golf clubs ever produced.
PING G410 Irons - Graphite Shaft
The new PING G425 irons are incredible, but for beginners ,we recommend the previous model in the G410's, as you'll find them a little easier to hit and generate a bit more speed with the graphite shaft.
In the G410 iron, PING took game-improvement technology and reshaped it, giving the model less offset and a shorter blade length while maintaining MOI to create the most forgiving iron on the market for its size. To generate power, face hinging and a larger flexing zone increase ball speeds for more distance and higher peak trajectories so you're able to hit and hold more greens. Feel and sound are improved with a co-molded cavity badge that damps vibrations.
Callaway Big Bertha B21 Irons
This iron is perfect for golfers who are completely new to the game, due to the serious amount of forgiveness packed into the Big Bertha B21's.
Behind the ball the B21 has a generous amount of offset which will be extremely beneficial to golfers who tend to get too much fade or slice spin on the ball. It also has a thick topline and a reasonably large profile which inspires confidence when behind the ball at address. The bottom of the club features a wide sole design to increase the margin of error when striking the ground before the ball. Tungsten weights are deployed differently in each iron head allowing Callaway to optimise the CG for the perfect high launch. With the easy launch capabilities of the Callaway Big Bertha B21 irons, they have been able to reduce the spin on the ball allowing for towering iron shots that will land softly on the green.
