Looking for new golf irons for 2023? The best golf irons 2023 have been picked out in the GolfReviewsGuide.com shortlist.
We’ve taken a look at some options that could be added to your bag this year, and help you get the most out of your game.
While the shape of iron sets has not changed all that much over the past few decades, technology continues to advance.
Golfers of any handicap can truly find an iron set to help play better golf right out of the box. Here are a few of the best golf irons 2023 has to offer.
1. Taylormade P7MB Irons
For better golfers looking to improve their iron games, the new 2023 Taylormade P7MB iron set is truly in a class of its own when it comes to shot shaping and workability without sacrificing distance.
Featuring a contemporary muscle back design with Compact Grain Forging, the irons also have a thin topline and progressive offset that provide great eye appeal and added confidence at address.
While certainly not inexpensive, the iron set makes up for its price in the workability that it offers for low-to-scratch handicap golfers.
Whether one needs to hit a hook around a tree or a fade over the water, the clubs perform above expectations when it comes to both forgiveness and distance.
2. Ping G430 Irons
Ping have achieved that by coming up with a new face design that is 3% thinner than the previous model, an expanded sweet spot and a 2mph increase in ball speed.
The irons feature an added technology known as Purflex Cavity, which improves flexibility in the irons to create greater ball speeds from seven zones of the stainless steel club head.
The deep cavity back in these irons has also been re-engineered with a larger badge than in previous models helping to create more flex as well a reduce spin.
3. Mizuno JPX923 Irons
Mizuno have increased the JPX923 irons range to include five models created from three specific metals, using Swing DNA data from over 350,000 golfers to come up with the designs.
Replacing the JPX921 irons, Mizuno have upgraded the series and added an additional model with the Forged, Tour, Hot Metal and Hot Metal Pro returning along with the new Hot Metal HL.
Brand new for 2023, the Forged model offers a balanced performer, the Tour is more compact providing precision workability and the Hot Metal range delivers explosive ball speeds from the three models.
4. Callaway Great Big Bertha Irons
Another new model for 2023, the Great Big Bertha irons are the first-ever multi-piece titanium and tungsten design from Callaway.
The new irons feature a unique design with Callaway opting for a combination of titanium and tungsten for the first time to deliver driver-like power from an iron for the first time.
They come with an eye-watering price tag as Callaway’s most complete irons yet, but look set to build on the legacy of the Big Bertha brand.
5. Srixon ZX5 Irons
Srixon generally is not known for producing great iron sets, but the ZX5 irons set is certainly an exception.
The irons feature a milled pattern on the back of each face to maximize COR and ball speed, along with a multi-piece construction that places more weight in the toe for the mid-to-high irons to add forgiveness.
Two design features that really help to set the irons apart are progressive grooves that are sharper and deeper as one progresses lower with the set, with V-shaped soles on the bottom of the clubheads as well to help boost playability.
The design of the grooves in particular make it a great iron set for those looking for better stopping power into greens.
6. TaylorMade Stealth Irons
TaylorMade Stealth irons feature a new-look Cap Back Design with toe wrap construction to produce an “extremely low” CG for more distance, more forgiveness and an improved feel from fairways and rough.
The design tweaks from the SIM 2 Max irons to the Stealth have resulted in an increased launch angle and a much higher ball flight for added distance in the new model.
There is a draw-bias in the longer irons compared to the mid-irons and a progressive reduction through to the short irons.
