How well you strike your irons can often prove the difference between your best rounds of the season, and your worst.
Irons are important as they are used for long shots out of the rough or approach shots near and around the green.
Whether you're hitting a 4-iron from outside of 200 yards or a soft 9-iron from inside of 100 yards, knowing the proper technique and how far your iron travels exactly is key to success.
GolfMagic has compiled a list of 10 top tips we recommend you take out onto the course with you to help you find more greens and pepper more pins.
Why not give them a go during your next round, and see how you get on. We'd love to know how you get on, so please let us know on our social media channels...
TESTED: BEST GAME IMPROVEMENT IRONS 2017
#1 - KNOW YOUR YARDAGE
With any club, it is important to know not only how far you are capable of hitting the ball, but how far you tend to hit it.
With long irons this can differ as much as 50 yards and with the flight lower and running on impact with the ground, this can bring all kinds of hazards into the equation.
So take the time to step out the yardage of a dozen balls hit on the practice range to find your average distance with each club.
And don’t just pick a calm day. Try different shots downwind and into the wind, making notes of your results as you go along.
Why not jot your yardages down in a book - just like the professionals and caddies do - to help you become a more consistent player. Knowing how far you hit a full shot with a certain club can make all the difference to shooting lower scores.
It is a game of inches, or so they keep telling us.
