Should a beginner use a 4 iron?
What does this all mean for beginners starting out? We would recommend having at least 2 hybrids in your bag and starting your irons at either a 5-iron or 7-iron. A beginner should certainly not have a traditional 2, 3 or 4-iron in their bag.
Is a 4 iron easy to hit?
The good news is that, for most golfers, the 4 iron is typically easier to hit than the 2 or 3 irons. With some practice and basic fundamentals, your 4 iron can be one of the most useful clubs in your bag. With any club in your golf bag, including the 4 iron, one important element is consistency from shot to shot.

9 wood clubs typically have a loft close to 26 degrees while 3 or 4 hybrids typically have a loft of more like 28 degrees.
What is a 6 iron used for?
It’s best to use a 6 iron if you want to hit the ball over a tree or prefer a soft landing on the green so that the ball hits the ground without rolling further too much.
What golf club has a 25 degree loft?
The 4-iron, the longest iron used by many golfers, has a long shaft and a low loft of approximately 25 degrees. A typical man will hit a 4-iron 170 yards.
What has more loft 56 or 60?
A 60-degree wedge has four more degrees of loft than a 56-degree wedge. This extra loft can make a big difference when it comes to getting the ball up in the air and then stopping it on the green. Sixty-degree wedges work well for greenside bunker shots, and they tend to spin quite a bit.
What is a 32 degree golf club?
The loft and lie of a golf club are often misunderstood measurements. The 3-iron typically has 20 degrees of loft, the 5-iron has 25 degrees, the 7-iron has 32 degrees, the 9-iron has 41 degrees, and so on down through the wedges. The lob wedge will have the most loft at 60 degrees.
What is a 19 loft club?
The 19-degree hybrid is equal to a 3-wood club or a 4 iron. Since hybrids offer great versatility, they can be used comfortably on the fairway; from the rough, to off the tee. Traditional irons do not help in hitting a consistent shot; therefore, this is where a hybrid comes in to help in improving consistency.
