Strike while the iron's hot

Golfers love to bomb shots off the tee with a solid drive, but if your approach shots aren’t up to scratch, you’re going to be missing the green, and giving yourself less of a chance of playing well and lowering your handicap.

It’s a horrible feeling when you catch a bad bounce and your ball sails wayward off the green. But on the other hand, it’s an amazing feeling when you launch it just right and the ball comes to nestle itself down near the flagstick.

Have you ever stopped to think how often you make a green in regulation? You may have some misconceptions about how regularly you’re making if from the fairway directly onto the green.


If you're playing off a handicap of 20 and you make 5 GIR, you're really playing to a handicap of 15.



The data really shows us that hitting it that much closer on our approach shots will be hugely beneficial to your score and overall handicap. If we hit the ball closer with our golf irons in the first place, we’ll be setting ourselves up in a much better position to putt on the green.


Finding the fairway


The secret to having the best approach shot lined up is to make sure you find the fairway off the tee. It can be tempting to always reach for the big stick ahead of teeing off to get the most distance, but you may want to size down a club or two if your target is to set yourself up nicely in the fairway.

The next time you’re wanting to land neatly down the middle, why not take a smaller wood or even a hybrid? Sacrificing a bit of distance in return for greater accuracy can be a real benefit when it comes to setting yourself up with a great second shot.


We’ve got some fantastic summer competitions ahead of us, and if your golf irons are looking a little worse for wear, you’re not going to be playing to your best ability. Heading out with some new gear will put you in with a much better chance pulling off successful approach shots and landing your ball safely on the green.

We’re open and available in the pro shop should you be looking to come to grips with some new kit. With the latest clubs from Wilson in your hands, you’ll be striking it true time and again.


Wilson golf irons

Wilson Dynapower irons

The Dynapower iron features a variable thickness that runs across the face to help give you more distance on your strikes. With a high-MOI clubhead, you’ll be making super accurate shots to help you land it safely on the green more often. The centre of gravity has been positioned low in the clubhead for higher launch, and the clubhead construction includes a pleasing topline for increased confidence at address.

Wilson Dynapower Forged irons

Having been designed using Wilson’s state of the art artificial intelligence tech, the Dynapower Forged irons have a flawless clubface that promotes excellent distance both off the tee and off the deck. Wilson has redistributed the weight in the clubhead to be geared towards the toe, giving you higher, more forgiving shots.

Wilson Staff Model irons

If you’re an adept player that prefers to play with bladed irons, the Staff Model Blade could be the club for you. This iron differs from the Dynapower irons by having eliminated unused weight in the hosel, and shifting it towards the toe area of the clubhead. This iron benefits from a grippy, friction-milled face, and the soft-feeling carbon-steel construction promotes effortless workability.
