How to Hit Iron Shots
*Evaluate your lie & *Select an iron that will still reach the green if you miss-hit the shot
*ALWAYS tee the ball up on the tee-box
*When choosing a target to play at, aim at something above the target.
(top of a tree, chimney on a house ect.)
*Set your hands slightly forward to promote a downward blow
*Ball position generally in the middle of your feet
*Focus your eyes towards the front of the ball for cleaner contact
*A full shoulder turn is a good swing thought.
*Never try to scoop/lift the ball in the air. Use a more lofted club to hit it higher!
*Longer irons- shallow divots Shorter irons- deeper divots
*DONT keep your head down the entire swing
Q & A
*Are your irons built for you?
*Understanding your Lie angles is critical. Example: A club that is too upright will
close the face at impact - which may not be a bad thing if you constantly fight a slice.
*Why do you hit behind the ball more often with your wedges?
