    One can cause that, using an apparel that increase iron distance. Other reason, sometimes distance are not consistent, I’ve noticed that too. Only way you can find out, take few practice rounds with those irons on couple of courses, and compare how they shoot. That’s what I do whenever I suspect something with any of my clubs. And if somehow, your irons are consistent with the 10% more yardage, just adjust your numbers. I know the feeling, when you think you made a perfect shot, just to see it short, or way over the green.

    actually, if you play a cc tourney, apparel isn't in effect, your yardages should go back to what ur used to. Did you change anything ,  balls?  might be it too.

    I play the mobile version on iPad and was caught out by this a long time back. Now I use apparel that boosts my driver and 3W distance, but never something that impacts the irons or wedges. It's hard enough to dial those in without adding an additional factor in there.

    Likewise I avoid all the "added spin" bonus, because I have no idea what it will do - and seek out passive ones like "increased sweet spot" or "increased forgiveness" so I can play normally although (theoretically, hopefully) better.

    Apparel only counts in a few game modes anyway, so it's not a big advantage/issue most of the time.

    I noticed it showing I don't always get the full distance upgrade on the Topgolf shirt.  But I think WGT want me to think that I'm not. 

    For example, my 7 iron with the level 90 Taylormade set is 177 yards with the topgolf shirt maxed out.  161 without.  Sometimes it will show I'm only getting 168 yards.  When I played at 168 I was always way too long. Hitting over the greens. 

    Now I just assume I'm getting the full 177 whether it shows it or not.  And I'm a lot better with the distance now.  I do that will all the irons.
