I have been miserable hitting my irons of late.  I am usually on target as in the right direction, but short.  So I took my first lesson yesterday at Big Oak golf in E Roch NY.  Bottom line is that I use to much of my right hand and not enough of my left.  Worked on a couple of drills to get more of a wrist hinge in my back swing.  Worked on the grip a bit too.  Thumb more along the top of the shaft than off to the side a wee bit.  Seems harder for me to swing that way...
Yep move the ball back in your stance a bit.  This is a quick on course fix.  When you do that though you sometimes will start hooking the ball a bit.  At least that is what happens when I do this.  thanks
Just to clarify the above post when the fella said to hit down on the ball he was talking about my irons not my driver.  This is where my game went south.  Trying to hit down on the ball.  Beats me is all I can say.  Can't wait to bash it around tomorrow.  thanks  
So last week I hooked with this fella on Wed. that would crush the ball off the tee.  No short game though.  So today I drive out to Chruchville NY to the Parks Course's out there.  Play the east course.  Hard course, lots of water and sand traps etc.etc.  Well nobody really there so I say to myself why not play a ball from the blue and then the white tees'.  Just to see if it makes that big of a difference.  Bottom line I was 2 shots better through 4 holes from the...
I did the same thing back in the late 90's.  What I found was a much larger grip helped.  Non tapered big grips.  Might cure the hook you are getting now.  Hope this helps.  Never stayed with it, went back to the overlapping grip.  thanks  
What?  I only said Asian cause he is.  Korean I think cause his name was Kim.  He was small but pounded the mack daddy all day long.  His short game sucked and he knew it and said so.  My long game ain't so long but my short is decent, pretty much so and he said that.  Take that first hole I hit it in from 100 yds and missed the green by about 5 yards.  He went over the green by about 5 yds.  I pitched to 2' and he pitched to about 12'.  I saved par and he didn't by 2...
Last Wed. I played the south course in Churchville NY, a Parks golf course.  Nice and long but very open with very little in the way of hazards save for the rough and trees.  I hooked up on the first tee with an Asian dude that weighed about 150 lbs soaking wet.  Off the first tee he lets' it rip and I mean he had like 50 yds left in.  I wanna say the first hole on the south course is about 339 yds maybe.  So anyways as the round progressed this guy could out right smack...
Here are 3 I really like but I ain't long but I am accurate.  The 2010 Top Flite E I think it is called.  I bought 3 boxes this spring and have used 3 sleeves from one box.  It is a very excellent ball with great attributes and if I didn't own so many of the Noodles and Wilson Duo's I just might play this one all the time. An old ball, the Noodle soft and long.  I really like it.  Doesn't roll out much on the green so it gets good bite but I skin it easily, and that...
Ok here's the deal.  I've found that a set of very old clubs I made back about 96 when I started to play the irons seem to very are long.  Clones of Ping Eye 2's.  So close in fact Karsten sued the company and won.  I find that these are a half a club to a full club longer than say my Hogan Edge GCD's.  And for that fact longer than all of my iron sets save for Callway X16's I have.  So the scenario is this, 155 out, 7 iron in the Pro Tours but they may be a bit right or...
I've so many sets of irons I could probably start a small business selling off what I don't use.  thanks
