After much work on my swing (thanks to advice on this site), I am finally hitting my short irons consistently on target. Unfortunately, the improvement in my short irons is not carrying over into my longer clubs at all.
Toward the end of last season, I got so disappointed with my long iron and wood inconsistency that I decided to play several rounds with only my 8 iron and putter (2 clubs). I usually hit my 8 iron 170 yds and our local course is short (can reach every green in regulation). I hit it right down the middle almost every time, and I shot back to back 41's after a blow-up 52 using all clubs pushed me to this extreme experiment. Now this season I continue to hit my short irons consistently straight (PW - 7 iron), but for some reason I still spray my long clubs everywhere with no consistency. Most likely misses are a big hook or straight push.
Anyone recall something similar in their past, in which they could consistently hit short irons (PW-7 iron) right on target, but your long clubs were sprayed everywhere? If so, do you recall your fix?
