Seven irons that will give you more distance on the golf course

Distance irons

Improving players often leave yards out on the course because of the irons they use.

Here we dive into the player’s distance irons category and look at seven of the best clubs to effectively expand the metal influence in your game.

These clubs will all likely add a few yards to your game provided you have the game to strike them well.

Srixon ZX5 MK II Irons

If you are consistently striking your irons flush but find the distance you are getting a little depressing, consider making the Srixon switch with the ZX5 MK IIs.

A slightly wider sole with moderate blade length and offset help these Irons give attuned golfers enhanced distance, forgiveness, and workability while displaying a clean look at address.

Loaded with tech and crafted with precision these are high-end tools of the trade and will set you back a pretty penny but many vouch for their value.

Callaway Paradym Irons

Callaway claims that the Paradym Irons sport the most powerful forged iron face they have ever produced.

These clubs also sport a range of tech with the latest AI feedback and design elements.

The entire design is directed at increasing ball speed and gaining yards, making them a great distance option.

TaylorMade P790 Irons

TaylorMade P790 Irons bring a certain balance to the distance game, along with a few elements designed to help improving players bridge gaps in their game.

With AI-optimized weighting and the specially designed SpeedFoam™ Air system on the inside, every iron is uniquely designed to perform exactly how you need it to.

These irons frequently come out on top when reviewed alongside competitors for all-around performance.

Mizuno JPX923 Hot Metal Pro Irons

The most forgiving irons on this list, the Mizuno JPX923 Hot Metal Pro Irons still have a pretty high threshold for use.

You will need to generate at least moderate swing speed to get the most out of these irons.

The pro version of these irons are more compact and while you don’t need to be heading to Tour school to use these, the forgiveness elements won’t be much aid to high handicappers.

PXG 0311 P GEN5 Irons

PXG says these irons are engineered for any golfer who desires the optimal balance of distance and forgiveness.

With the kind of advanced weight-saving tech you would expect from any iron at this level, the GEN5s also sport a unique, modern aesthetic.

They have a brutish look to them despite being as lightweight and compact as their competitors.

Mizuno JPX923 Forged Irons

It is no surprise to see Mizuno on this list twice and they would probably have more designs to feature if it weren’t for falling afoul of USGA rules a few times with their envelope-pushing designs.

The forged iron version of the JPX923 deserve its own entry as a masterpiece of the craft.

Marketed as the perfect bridge set for players moving into or out of Tour-style irons they combine good forgiveness and strong ball speed with a traditional look at address and a thinner sole.

Wilson D9 Forged Irons

The Wilson D9 Forged Irons are a great compromise if you aren’t willing to spring for the more expensive Mizuno JPX923 Forged Irons.

Wilson’s D9s do most things just as well as the Mizuno’s but you will be giving up fractional distance for a $500 saving.

This kind of market placing really is Wilson’s bag and they are a great option for the serious player with some budgetary constraints.
