What Is the Loft Angle of Irons?
This article is one of our editor's top picks this month.
Irons are designed for use on the fairway when golfers get closer to the green. The 4-iron. the longest iron used by many golfers, has a long shaft and a low loft of approximately 25 degrees. A typical man will hit a 4-iron 170 yards. Women’s clubs may have slightly more loft, and women will typically hit the ball shorter for each club. The important thing for accuracy on the golf course is to find out how long you can hit each iron. Players usually use the driver off the tee, and fairway woods or hybrids for longer fairway shots.
