Niblick or Rut Niblick – a trouble club and pitching iron and generally the most lofted of the 19th century irons , with a very small rounded head and a loft equivalent to a modern nine iron or wedge .
: an iron golf club with a loft between those of a mashie and a niblick . — called also number six iron.
The irons from 5 to 7 are typically called the “mid irons”, and are generally used from the fairway and rough for longer approach shots, between 130-210 yards depending on the club , player and course. They are also used on hillier fairways to avoid hitting a low rise, which is a risk with long irons.

Updated January 24, 2020. The golf club called a ” spoon ” was the wooden-shafted club in (primarily) pre-20th Century golf history that was most equivalent to today’s fairway woods of various lofts — 3-woods, 5-woods, 7-woods. There were various types of spoons in addition to the standard or basic one.
Explanation: When talking golf history, the terms “mashie” and “niblick” are sure to surface. Sometimes referred to as “mashie-niblicks,” these once-popular golf clubs are today considered obsolete, archaic and antique.
There were clubs called mashies and niblicks (and mashie-niblicks); cleeks and jiggers; baffies and spoons, among others. Today, we call such clubs ” antique golf clubs ” or “historical golf clubs ,” or obsolete or archaic clubs . Perhaps the better name, though, would be “pre-modern clubs .”
: an iron golf club with less loft than a mashie and a longer shaft. — called also driving mashie , number four iron .
Golf equipment is no different from furniture, rare wine and Chinese porcelain: old is often better then new—and a lot more valuable . Many clubs produced as recently as the 1950s and ’60s are considered “classics.” Some are worth $1,000 a set, and the right kind of sand wedge can bring $500 or more all by itself.
Jigger’s themselves are not illegal but they are considered an iron and therefore can’t have a flat on the grip so that rules out all superstroke grips and paddle grips. Also be careful when buying one as some have 2 hitting faces they are also illegal only a putter can have 2 hitting faces ie. bullseye putters.
Woods: Play club: Driver. Brassie: so called because the base-plate was of brass; equivalent to a 3 Wood . Spoon : Higher-lofted wood ; equivalent to a 5 Wood .
Hybrid clubs are more tolerant of mis-hits than their counterpart irons , so a casual player will likely hit the ball farther , on average, with a hybrid than a standard iron .
Hybrids are easier to hit in the center of the clubface, and they fly higher and land softer than your long irons, which helps place and control those important lengthy approach shots. They also are versatile, and can be hit from the rough, for bad lies—even chipping.
Again, this will all depend on experience, skill and club head speeds: 2- iron = 105 to 210 yards. 3- iron = 100 to 205 yards. 4- iron = 90 to 190 yards. 5- iron = 80 to 175 yards. 6- iron = 70 to 165 yards. 7- iron = 65 to 155 yards. 8- iron = 60 to 145 yards. 9- iron = 55 to 135 yards.
