I’ve seen a “driving iron” for sale and was wondering what it is exactly (I’m new to golf and have been playing about 6 months). Is it equivalent to a hybrid iron that replaces one of the 3 or 4 irons for example?

A driving iron would be considered a 0 or 1 iron. It has very low loft (such as 10 – 16%) and a longer shaft. It’s for people who don’t hit woods very well, but need a longer iron than a 3 of 4 off the tee. They’re not for everyone – definitely try one at a driving range before buying.
