Best affordable irons for 2022

This month, Golfweek is helping you find the most affordable equipment on the market.

Whether you’re young and new to the game, seasoned and looking for an upgrade or just want some new equipment without breaking the bank, we have you covered.

We’ve already found some of the most affordable drivers on the market right now. Look out for affordable wedges, putters and other equipment coming out later this month.

Today, it’s all about the irons!

To classify as affordable, each iron set we selected had to come in under $1,000 for a set or under $150 per iron for a seven club average. Without cutting quality, we’ve done the digging to find the best deals out there at the moment. Many of the items below are currently on sale, so act fast!

For a deeper dive on the best irons on the market, check out David Dusek’s piece from earlier this year.

Ping G425 irons (PGA TOUR Superstore)

Price: $999.25

Clubs: 4-PW
