Get distance with your long iron
Around the Academy:

Introduction

The development of increasingly lofted metal woods means many golfers no longer have to play low irons.

The one or two iron is a thing of the past for most amateurs.

However the long irons are still a vital part of an all-round game.

They fly on a lower trajectory than fairway woods and can therefore help you reach longer distances especially when playing against the wind.

So don't neglect to add this weapon to your armoury.
