Two of the recent blogs by Danny Maude reminded me why if is so difficult to tenancy the direction and loftiness for every iron shot. Slope of the ground (side to side or when to front) your weight shift and your swing arc can transpiration your impact point with every variegated length of iron. You need to retread your stance, grip and lineup to execute perfect shots up your target line.
Inconsistencies are exactly the reason why mid-handicap golfers need to take a full practice swing surpassing each hit. You need to pay sustentation to the direction of the club squatter and the point of impact with respect to the wittiness position. You have to visualize where your club squatter will RELEASE your ball. Of course, it’s so much easier to understand your errors when you see the divot without you hit each shot.
Eliminating Angles for Your Irons in Your Setup
Your iron shaft should be setup perpendicular from where your wittiness is resting. DON’T SETUP WITH A FORWARD SHAFT LEAN. Your wedge shots should be lined up in the part-way of your stance so your shaft should be pointing at your whup buckle. The wittiness position for your 6-iron is forward of the part-way of your stance so the shaft of your club should still be square to the ground but pointing slightly forward of your whup buckle (as below).
Setup with the Squatter Square
You can add yank or fade with the direction of you swing. You can moreover add vaccinate or slice with a sealed or unshut face, respectively, so setup with the squatter of your club square to your target line to understand the impact of a square setup. Every iron is swung in an arc so you need to focus on creating a resulting impact with your club squatter square and moreover keeping the impact point of your swing path in line with your target line. Making a well-constructed swing allows you to return your club to square at the marrow of your swing.
Make a Practice Swing Surpassing Every Shot
I rarely see a mid-handicap golfer take a practice swing that duplicates the swing speed and tempo of their very shot. Each club length will transpiration the outcome of your shots. Inconsistencies in your swing will show up during your practice swing. Just do it!
Learn from Your Wittiness Flight
Great golfers learn from their mistakes so that they can modernize their next shot. Ground slope, wittiness position (forward or back), club squatter unshut or sealed and swing direction (over the top or inside to out) will all transpiration the direction of your shot. Diagnose the flight of every shot that you make. If you don’t understand why your shots are not hitting their mark, take some lessons with a professional.
Ultimately you need a “feel” for your swing and the shot that you are trying to make. Make a practice swing and then execute that word-for-word shot. Once you understand what causes your wittiness flight, focus on your setup and practice with GOLFSTR to eliminate elbow and wrist limp which are subtracting dangerous angles to every swing.
