  • Ideally Reference Ranges for All Golf Clubs..

    Online there are a lot of references for ideal driver parameters, although does anyone know where to get these parameters for irons? I recently did fitting at Golftec and they has a great visual for irons, showing how parameters fell within "optimal" ranges for launch angle, backspin, descent angle, etc.

    I'm looking for something like the driver chart below but for irons:

    Ideally it would be nice to have this type of functionality built into a simulator package...

    You're looking for something that can't really exist. Those are charts to optimize distance in a driver. The problem is that the driver is the only club where you really want to maximize distance. In the rest of the clubs the concept of "optimal" just doesn't (or can't) mean the same thing. For irons, it's always going to be a compromise between distance and the ability to hold the green. Frequently referred to as "distance vs distance control." If you increase distance (usually by making the lofts stronger) then you reduce spin and more roll out on the greens. And each player has to find the best balance for them based on their swing and how they want to play the course, and even the conditions of the courses they typically play. Finally once that balance is determined, the next step is about managing distance gaps in the set.
