Fault:

– You are catching your iron shots either fat or thin
– You lack power with your irons

Fix:

If you are making consistently fat and thin contacts, you’ll need to head to the range to find a cure. The good news is that both bad shots come from the same place. If your weight is stuck on the back foot through impact, the club will ‘bottom out’ too and you’ll either catch the ground before the ball or strike the equator on the upswing. To rectify the problem address the ball normally and let your left foot move towards your right at the top of the backswing. Then as you drive back down towards the ball, let your right foot step back into position. This drill forces you to move your weight correctly during the swing and will prevent you from hanging back. Your ball striking should return.
