I'm not disregarding what the previous poster said, but personally I would highly recommend getting irons that are below your "handicap level" if you will. This is ONLY if you intend to seriously improve though. If you just want enjoyment out of the game playing only every so often, get the Burners. They're great irons, don't get me wrong. I used to have a set. But I give a lot of credit to my current set of irons (mixed blade set) to dramatically improving my game. I...
That swinging easier at the ball makes it go further. That and making sure that I'm balanced at address rather than having weight on my toes..
I use an app called Scorecard (developed by Erik aka iacas). I keep track of fairways, greens hit, any sand saves or up and downs, putts, and the distance of my first putt. Not nearly as bad as it might seem; I just put the numbers in when I get home and it gives me any stat I could possibly think of. It's incredibly helpful and is great at identifying what parts of your game need work. Highly recommended .
I wear a glove but quite honestly, I really don't know why I do. I did when I first started playing because everyone else was wearing them and I guess I have ever since. I take it off betweens shots too.
Think about keeping your elbows close together throughout the swing. Another forum member said it first so I can't take credit, but I can say that it's helped me immensely. That should help your separation problem.
Thanks for the info. I don't have a My Swing thread yet though. And I've been striking the ball a lot better since I started doing this, I just wasn't sure if it was a fluke or not. Guess it won't be 
I should start this off by saying that I'm a very short person (5'5", 5'6" on a good day) playing standard length clubs. I've been experimenting with standing more upright at address to accommodate a "sit down" (Tiger & Rory-esque move). I get a lot more power this way and I'm taking really good divots with my irons and wedges. I'm just wondering if it's bad that I have to alter my address position to perform this move. Hopefully someone will be able to enlighten me.
Welcome to the site! This thread's got a great explanation of what bounce/why it's good for your game: http://thesandtrap.com/t/57874/my-edel-wedges-or-super-bounce-and-why-its-good-for-you-or-the-sweet-spot-is-finally-in-the-right-place
Haha I realize that and I didn't mean to do it. I'm definitely more of a feel player but I don't try to make changes on the course. I make changes at home more than anything. If I feel I need it, I'll go to the range and hit a few buckets, focusing on just a few specific things. But overall, I'd rather just take my swing to the course on a non busy day and drop some balls in bad lies or angles and see what I can do. I practice specialty shots at the range or practice...
I forgot to add, I am one of the biggest pro-at home practicing people there are. That's the time that I focus on mechanics and implementing any change. I make slow swing in front of a mirror to certain spots, repeat that a lot. I suppose I might have invalidated any argument I may have made in my first post with that.
