I consider my set up pretty normal.

Only one hybrid and it is a Nike CPR 2 (19*)

My longest club is a TaylorMade R7 CGB 3-iron, the rest of my clubs are a different set.

I never have owned a wood over 3, I only use my irons when I play and it will probably stay that way until my two lessons.

Sumo 10.5*
R7 Draw 15* 3W
3dx 17* 2H
Pi5 3-PW
Spin Milled Vokey 54* CG11 60* C-01

I voted for the 5 iron because that's the longest that came in my set, and it's not a particularly cranked loft. Swung a friend's X2 Hot 4i and I was fine after a few swings but not sure if that qualified. I wish I had a 4i instead of a 4 hybrid.

Which is the longest iron you can hit consistently good?

I can consistently hit a 3i very well, because I choose not to hit it from the rough/gunch...but I now typically carry a 3h instead because it is much more versatile in being able to hit it consistently from less than fairway lies.

Players play, tough players win!

Hard for me to say because it depends on how well I'm playing at any given time.

When I'm playing fairly well (that's as good as it gets from me) I hit my 3 iron very well.

When I'm not playing very well I very often would rather take something off of a 5W than to hit an iron. Lately I've had a 3 hybrid in the bag instead of my 3 iron because I'm not playing very well.

The 3 is my longest iron but I did borrow a friend's 1 iron one day and smoked it every time (but I was hitting irons very well that day).

So I guess to answer the question I would have to decide if I was Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde.

4 iron.  I have a 3H.

My longest iron was 4i, so I bought a 3h, turned out the 3h has the same loft as my 4i, and goes the same distance, but so much easier to hit! So I ditched the 4i. Damn cranked lofts!! Now I need a 2 h!

Can play? 2-iron. Choose to play? 5-iron. Hybrids are so easy to hit higher and longer that I just can't justify carrying a long iron any more!

I don't have 2-iron, so my longest iron (see my signature below) is 3 iron, which I hit around 230 yds.

    • You can work on distance using the same idea as your partial wedges.  You said you had a system, why not use it for putting?  If you pull your wedge back to 7:30 you know how far it will go. Use the same idea for your putter.  Practice distances if you pull the putter back to 7:30, 8:30....   I'm sure someone with more experience will chime in but another word of advice.. use the same ball, don't mixed types of golf balls.   Good luck
    • After a quick 21-putt 9 holes in the Chicago cold yesterday, I found myself again frustrated with my poor distance control while putting. I’ve put in indoor putting practice time on improving my setup and stroke and have seen a definite improvement in my putting start lines. However, with limited space I have not been able to dedicate much time to distance control and that has always been a weakness. With partial wedges, many (myself included) have a system based on clubs & backswing lengths. With full swings I know approximate carry yardage buckets for all my clubs. And I have a golf watch to tell me exactly how far I am from the center of the green. Putting - I have rarely ever seen someone pace off a putt to know the exact distance to the hole.  And the prevailing advice for putting (and short chips) is to rely on feel and practice to hone it in - curious whether: 1. Anyone uses or has tried a sort of system for this?  2. Why the prevailing wisdom here differs so much from other golf skills, where technique is a primary target for improvement rather than feel/skills. I was considering experimenting with a few different putting backswing checkpoints to have some benchmarks I can refer to. Obviously, you would need to adjust to green speeds and slopes day-to-day but if the tempo of your stroke remained relatively consistent I think it could work.
