The Best Irons for 2022 – Here is our First Cut. We will update this list during the year as new models are introduced and as we test them with our customers.
With 39% of golfers in our poll saying their top priority is to purchase new irons, you should be looking at some of these new irons or at the very least better shafts in your current irons. This will give you more accuracy, improved consistency and greater distance!
The Golf Digest Hot List for 2022 had a lot of great irons in the categories listed below. In our fittings so far in 2022, these are what our players are choosing as well as what our fitters like. Some are not on the Hot List so take a look and see what we recommend!
Some great irons here for good ball strikers. Our favorites are the new Mizuno PRO 223 and TaylorMade P7-MC. PXG Gen4 0311T, Titleist 2021 T100, Srixon ZX7 and Ping i59, Callaway APEX TCB are some of the best performers. And take a good look at the Cobra King Tour!
There are a LOT of irons in this category that got gold. Too many to really separate them all so look, sound and feel are the best ways for you to choose. You will not go wrong with the TaylorMade P790 (2021) or the Callaway Rogue ST Pro Our customers also like the Mizuno Pro 225, PXG Gen4 0311P and Mizuno JPX-919 Forged. And, we can’t wait to get our hands on the new Ping i525.
Now we are talking serious distance AND forgiveness! But, make sure you get the right shafts to help launch these rocket ships! Our choices? Ping G425 and Titleist T300. The other hot ones our customers have liked are the Callaway Rogue ST Max, Mizuno JPX-921 Hot Metal, Taylor Made STEALTH, and the new Srixon ZX4.
Designed for beginners or golfers with slower swing speeds, there are some great looking and great performing heads in this group. We like the Cleveland Launcher HALO XL and Cobra T-Rail. Our customers may like the more traditional looking Cobra Air-X and Callaway Rogue ST Max OS!
