‘Add a driv­ing iron to give your­self more at­tack­ing op­tions from the tee’

Golf World (UK) - - TOUR -

I use my 18° driv­ing iron quite a lot. It’s an in­te­gral club in my bag and I’ve hit some re­ally good shots with it this sea­son. It’s re­ally good off the tee on tougher driv­ing holes, es­pe­cially when the fair­ways are hard and fast in the sum­mer. The lower flight is re­ally good when it’s windy and it can go pretty far; it’s also good for hit­ting sec­ond shots into par 5s. I’ve used a hy­brid in the past but I pre­fer the long iron off the tee, so I stick with it from week-to-week. The only draw­back is that it’s not as good out of the rough as a hy­brid. Here are my best tips if you want to use a driv­ing iron this sum­mer.
