The clubs are *lofted* differently. Loft refers to the
backward slant of the face of a golf club. The greater the loft,
the higher the arc of the shot it produces and the shorter the
distance. The three iron is designed for a distance of about 190
yards. (Actual distances vary depending upon the skill of the
player.) A four iron is good for 180 yards, etc. So, the nine iron
is good for shots of about 130 yards.
