Basically, an Iron is a type of club used in the sport of golf to propel the ball towards the hole. Typically, irons have shorter shafts and smaller clubheads than woods, the head is made of iron or steel, and the head’s primary specification is a large, flat, angled face, usually scored with grooves. Irons are used in variety of situations, typically from the teeing ground on shorter holes, from the fairway or offensive as the player approaches the green, and to extract the ball from hazards.
Irons are mostly common type of club; standard set of 14 golf clubs will usually contain between 7 and 11 irons, with wedges. Irons are customarily distinguished by a number from 1 to 10 (most commonly 3 to 9) that shows the relative angle of loft on the clubface, even though a set of irons will also vary in clubhead size, shaft length, and as a result lie angle as the loft (and number) increase.
Irons with increasing loft than the numbered irons are called wedges, which are typically marked with a letter showing their name, and are used for a variety of “utility” shots requiring short distances or high launch angles.
