A new set of the best golf irons doesn't have to break the bank anymore. Not when there are so many great options from previous generations. With technology in golf now at a point where it can't go much further, why not invest a bit wiser this Black Friday.
This is a time of year when retailers and manufacturers look to clear a lot of their older stock ahead of new releases in 2022. In particular, many previous-generation drivers appear for a fraction of the RRP, as do a load of irons and iron sets - that's what we'll be focusing on here.
Clubs from big-name brands that include TaylorMade, Titleist, Cobra and Callaway are all available at bargain prices at US and UK retailers such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Scottsdale Golf and American Golf.
Just because they aren't the latest model doesn't mean they won't perform brilliantly when you need them to. So, without further ado, check out some of the best previous-generation irons and iron sets we've found so far in the Black Friday sales - and keep an eye out as the offers continue to roll in through to Cyber Monday.
