We tested 29 iron models during our two-week stay at World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla. Forty handpicked golfers tried every model within an iron category on the course and driving range. Categories include: Better-Player (evaluated by ClubTesters with +1 to 10 handicaps), Game-Improvement (6 to 16 handicaps) and Maximum Game-Improvement (14 to 22 handicaps). Our exclusive research partner, Hot Stix Golf, custom-fit the testers and recommended clubs based on data gathered from the TrackMan launch monitor.
Note: Since we originally published this article, some companies have released new irons. Those clubs, marked with an (*), have not been through the ClubTest process yet, but we've included them in the chart below to help you find more clubs in one place.
