Shortening irons

buffheel2buffheel2 Members Posts: 8 ✭✭
Just bought some new irons off of eBay. Seller said they were 1” long, but they were actually 1.5” long. Played a round with them and really struggled with them for most of the round. Since I’ve been practicing with them and gripping down about 3/4” to approximately what I have played in the past and what I have been fitted for. Results are much better. I’m thinking about cutting them down to match what my previously irons were. What effects would take place as a result of shortening them? I’m 6-5 but an 1.5” long is too much for me. Any feedback would help. Thanks.

    Not a problem. You certainly may wish to check lie angle and swingweight afterward.

    The clubs will play a bit flatter and feel a bit lighter, but that may be just fine.
