Course designers are clearly in league with golf ball manufacturers.
How many golf courses have a Par 3, about 5 Iron distance, with water on the right?
They know that an Iron over 38“ long and less than 28° of loft has a good chance of going right.
Ten years ago, we told you that your 4 Iron loft had strengthened to become the same loft as the previous year’s 3 Iron. Your 5 Iron will today will have the same loft as that 3 Iron.
Without question, most golfers ought to be replacing their 5 Iron with a Hybrid. They should be investing in improving their technique. And smiling as they walk up to their ball on the green. It makes it easier to enjoy the geese! It also means you’re buying less golf balls.
