Long irons. For some here at Hole19 the very mention of them is enough to put them into a catatonic state.
They're tough to control and even harder to master, but if you can tame them and get them working for then you're in with a real chance of hitting some low scores.
Want to find out how to hit long irons straighter, further and more consistently? Here are some vids Hole19 golfers have found pretty useful:
