Best Irons For Low Handicappers

Regardless of handicap, every single golfer needs to have the best golf irons for them.

Low handicappers seeking to make improvements in their games will look for opportunities to make adjustments of fine tuning to maximise their potential.

When it comes to iron play, improving distance control and reducing dispersion could help a low handicapper produce better and more consistent scoring.

For the golfing purist, there’s nothing like a shiny set of elegant new blades. Not only do they look fantastic, but they also deliver the ultimate in feel and control.

Many low handicappers choose to play blades as they offer the greatest level of workability. With a blade, you can shape the ball in either direction, and control ball flight to suit the wind conditions.

Alternatively, a compact iron with a little more forgiveness might just offer the perfect blend of control and consistency.

You may have had a chance to look at our ultimate guide to the best irons on the market, or you might have looked at our advice on the best golf blade irons out there.

Here we’re focusing on the best irons for low handicappers.

Best Irons For Low Handicappers

Titleist T100 Irons

best irons for low handicappers

+ Classic shape and look
+ Great blend of attributes
– Won’t suit purists or high handicappers

One of the best Titleist irons out right now, the T100 irons have been designed to appeal to better players seeking a classic compact shape whilst still benefiting from a degree of forgiveness.

They feature traditional players’ iron lofts in a forged cavity construction.

The face is thin and responsive, while the use of tungsten weighting in the 3-7 irons boosts off-centre strike forgiveness.

It looks like the old Titileist 718 CB model at address thanks to being a bit more compact on the top rail, but has even more forgiveness on offer to rescue a poor strike. It feels noticeably solid and soft at impact and the extra camber on the sole helps it glide through the turf a little more easily.

We enjoyed the T100s in testing and particularly found the longer irons easy to hit with good launch, consistent ball speeds and tight dispersion.

This is a good, compact iron for better players looking for a blend of control and consistency.

Ping Blueprint Irons

best irons for low handicappers

+ Exceptional Feel
+ Highly workable
– Not the most forgiving

The Ping Blueprint is a very attractive, blade-style iron that’s been fully forged from 8620 carbon steel. In fact, we think this might be Ping’s most aesthetically pleasing club.

With shorter blade length, less offset and narrower sole widths than any other Ping iron, this is really a club for the best ball strikers.

The one-piece forging involved in constructing the Ping blueprint makes for very tight tolerance control and that means maximum consistency when it comes to distance control.

The machined tungsten toe screw weight and internal heel weight allow for precise swing weight tuning while the hydropearl finish reduces glare on sunny days.

In testing we found, once you find a rhythm, even though the hitting area is relatively small, the results are pleasing and it’s extremely easy to shape the ball and manipulate flight.

It’s a true blade that will suit the best players only, but for those seeking a great looking club and maximum workability, it’s well worth considering.

Mizuno JPX921 Tour Irons

Best irons for low handicappers

+ Soft and pure feel
+ Tour shape
– Not as forgiving as JPX921

An iron that also features in our best Mizuno irons guide, these Tour inspired irons have been designed to provide precise distance control for the better player.

The JPX921 Tour maintains its predecessor’s fusion of precision with stability from off-centre strikes.

Mizuno’s Stability Frame with toe bias weighting promotes a longer, straighter and more consistent ball flight while the pearl brush finish reduces glare.

Grain Flow Forged HD from 1025E Pure Select Mild Carbon steel, the JPX921 Tour delivers an identifiable and classic Mizuno feel.

The shorter irons feature a narrower sole for improved turf interaction while a thicker cavity pad throughout the set, evolving from Mizuno’s study of vibration patterns, produces a harmonic impact that can be felt for a fraction longer.

Better players will enjoy the workability on offer with these irons.

Callaway Mavrik Pro Irons

best irons for low handicappers

+ Good workability
+ Aesthetically appealing
– Not as forgiving as Mavrik and Mavrik Max

The Callaway Mavrik Pro iron is a thing of beauty with its lighter satin chrome finish and players’ profile behind the ball. With its compact shape, the Pro is aimed at mid and low handicap players looking to have a little more control but still benefit from the impressive technologies featured in the Mavrik range.

The irons feature Flash Faces designed by a super-computer. The result is a sophisticated face architecture for every loft delivering a significant boost in ball speed and optimised spin.

In the long irons, the faces are designed for launch and speed, while in the mid-irons the faces are engineered for a combination of speed and spin consistency. The short irons have a face construction designed to optimise precision for shot-making.

Tungsten weights have been precisely positioned to deliver the best possible launch and trajectory.

But with classic shape and clean lines, the Mavrik Pro is a far more workable iron than the Mavrik or Mavrik Max. With thinner topline and sole for more precise striking, better players will enjoy the feel as well as the performance.

As used by Rory McIlroy this iron has proved popular with Tour players.

We found the P7MB to be surprisingly forgiving in testing. One of the most playable blades/musclebacks we’ve tried. The feel off the face is buttery soft and looks are stunning. Truly one of the best models out right now let alone one of the best TaylorMade irons on the market.
