Range: 130-150yds (119-137m)

The 7-iron is ideal for shorter approach shots.

A good club to use for the 'bump and run' shot suited to links courses or when there is a strong wind and one wants to keep the ball low.

Take a three-quarters swing with a more 'punchy action' instead of a full eight or nine iron.

It's also an ideal club to practice with on the range.
