Any golfer will tell you that the best irons on the market and best irons for you are two very, very different things. In today’s article we are going to look at extremely forgiving irons that are perfect for golfers with handicaps north of 15.
If you are struggling with mishits with your irons, you will be shocked at what a difference moving down in class of club will do. These irons are going to get the ball up in the air and get you to the dance. Let’s take a look at our top four super game-improvement irons on the market in 2016.
Adams New Idea Irons
Full disclosure, I own both these clubs and the Mizuno JPX EZ irons, but then again I run this site and own the majority of the clubs we review. The Adams New Idea irons are the definition of game improving… The first time I picked these clubs up, I had just finished hacking the ball all over for 18 holes. The club pro handed me a set of these to try and after 5 minutes on the range, I had to play another round. A toe-to-heel sweet spot and appearance that gives you confidence every time you look down at the club head, the Adams New Idea’s are the perfect set of irons for new players.
Mizuno JPX EZ Irons
Like I said above, I own the Mizuno JPX EZ’s and love them. They aren’t quite as ‘beginner’ as the Adams New Idea’s, but they give you a little more feedback and will help you to improve your swing while still getting around the course without a ton of mishits. Both the Mizuno and the Adams are going to effortlessly get the ball up in the air and have you looking like a pro. To me, these are just a great set to own, I can break out these clubs and know that regardless of how I have been playing, my iron play is going to be solid.
TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Irons
Now we are starting to get into clubs that I describe as being forgiving with feedback. The Burners are not as ‘fool-proof’ as the first two club on our list, but they are considerably more forgiving than any player irons and longer than the Adams and Mizuno’s. I haven’t done so, but my guess would be that if you walked into a GolfSmith and asked for a beginner set, the Burner 2.0 irons may be the irons they recommend. Priced at just $299 right now, you are getting a great beginner set of irons at a price that won’t break the bank.
Ping GMax Irons
The Ping GMax irons are a great set of beginner irons from a brand that isn’t often considered an entry-level club maker. Most day I prefer my player irons, but if I had to pick one set to have in my bag every time out from this list it would probably be the Ping GMax irons. These irons are super forgiving, mishits fly off the club head… You will still have the occasional shank, but slight mishits feel and look pure.
