One major manufacturer: three product models, three different #7 Irons, three different lofts (30°, 32°, and 32 ½°). Another major manufacturer has different #7 Iron models at 32° and 35°. Across those five clubs there is already more than a club length of difference.
Now take a photo of 5 different golfers hitting the same #7 Iron (pick any of the five above). Compare the actual loft of the golf club at impact in each photo. Whatever the loft, I can almost guarantee that there will be five different actual lofts. Some of the golfers pictured will have hands ahead of the ball at impact (de-lofting the club), while others will have a swing that has their hands level with the ball (maximising the club loft at impact).
Each of our five different golfers will also have a different angle of attack on the golf ball, creating both a different launch angle and a different rate of spin on the golf ball.
So, when you hear on the television, a commentator calling out the distance to the flag a Tour Professional is going to hit his #7 Iron, then be aware that the cub he is using will probably be starting out at least 4 or 5° stronger than your club, and his technique is such that his hands have de-lofted the club further at impact.
So if the distance he is going to hit his #7 Iron is 35 yards longer than you hit your #7 Iron, don’t worry. His club loft will be stronger. But, you can get a lot closer if we can improve your technique, so that your angle of attack and position at impact are improved.
