Oh - is it 1 Iron which never existed?

yeah its generally 3 - 9 irons. pitching wedge, sand wedge, 1-5 woods and of course a putter.
now there are newer clubs like the fairway hybrids which are half wood half iron. and the development of "drivers" which are pretty much 1 woods, but bigger and flatter for long distance.

No, 1 irons exist. They are just extremely hard to hit.

Everytime a storm hits while I'm playing, I just stand in the middle of a fairway and hold up my 1 iron because not even God can hit a 1 iron.

Played 3 games at 3 courses while I was in Aus.
Always fade it every shot. Really annoying. Normally use a 1.5 wood but I had a go with my brother's oversized monster and I was driving about 300yrds.
Shite with irons (except 2, 4 and 7. Love them.) My putting is fantastic. :)

Going to pick up a new set over here and start playing more...

My Dad has a fairly newish set (got them a year ago but only played 3 games with them) with a couple of hybrids. 3 and 4 irons. Look just like woods. Had a go with them and didn't get along with them at all... Felt weird.

LOL  :p

Ok, I feel like (more of) an idiot (than usual) now...

I always thought there was no such thing as a 1-iron?  (confused with wood earlier)

Now I'm confused, I always thought it was only 3-9 iron and 1-5 wood. But now the Ratboy says they do :confused:.

The first quote makes it sound like you thought they existed and the second quote makes it sound like you thought they didn't :P.

Yeah they exist its just they are very rare because they are so hard to hit... I tried one out once at a range and couldn't get any lift from it at all...
And you are only allowed 13 clubs/instruments in your bag. 1 irons are almost never used so they don't feature in bags...

so why make a 3 the lowest... why not make a 3 iron a 1 iron.  etc..... (these go to 11)   :dopey:
