You might be wondering when it is a good time to buy some new irons. If you have landed on this page, you probably have a good idea that you are ready for some. Many golfers take the time to research the perfect putter and driver while using some irons that have passed down from their grandparents. When you take into consideration that you’ll only be using your driver at about a dozen holes in total while you’ll take between 30 and 40 iron shots, you should think long and hard about the irons you choose to use as your go-to’s.
When choosing your next set of irons, you need to be honest with yourself about how much you’ll be playing and in turn, how much you’re willing to spend on them. If you are becoming a more serious player and think your current irons are leaving you some distance to be desired, think about getting yourself a nice set. However, if you plan on playing just a few times a year, that might make your decision easier in terms of knowing you don’t need the best.
All that said, there are a lot of irons out there to choose from and without mortgaging your house, you can get yourself a pretty nice set. For these reasons, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best golf irons out there for the season. We hope these options help you make an easier decision.
