Nike Irons for Beginners

By Steve Silverman

Nike has developed a reputation for building innovative and well-made clubs that are good for golfers of all levels, including beginners. Tiger Woods used and endorsed Nike clubs during the height of his career. However, Nike has now decided to discontinue their line of golf clubs, meaning those who want to use these clubs will have to look for used clubs. The following are strong clubs that offer forgiveness to the beginners and high-handicap golfers who don't have perfect swings.

Nike Victory Reds

The Nike Victory Reds are weighted around the perimeter and that makes it easier for golfers to hit good shots that fly high in the air. The thickness of the club is tapered from top to bottom and that also helps produce effective shot making.
(2009 price: $699.95)

Slingshot 4D Irons

The Slingshot 4D irons have the weight of the club placed strategically. The weight is low and back in the long irons and high and forward in the short irons. This helps each iron produce the optimum ball flight. The longer irons are offset to produce higher and straighter shots.
(2009 price: $499.95)

Sumo Squared iron set

The Sumo iron set contains 4 hybrid clubs and 4 irons each offering the highest total moment of inertia quotients that Nike has ever built. The Sumo iron set has a long blade length and wide sole along with a low profile to produce a stable shot on impact.
(Suggested price: $899.95)
