If your irons are truly that bad, you should probably put the driver away and just hit nothing but irons for a while. Work on the stuff Mike and Erik went over, and just nail irons at the range.
My irons are FINALLY starting to come around, to where I have confidence when I have one in my hands. It may not always be a perfect shot, but it's gonna keep me out of trouble, and go in the general direction of where I want it.
My game has improved tremendously in the past 2 weeks. And it's 100% due to my improved iron play. Driver has gotten worse, putting has gotten worse, scores have still gotten better. Once I get my putting stroke back, I'm pretty sure I'll be averaging low 80s.
You, like I *used* to do, hit driver on every par 4 and par 5, even though 8-9/10 of our drives suck...just because the 1 or 2 perfect ones make us feel good, and It's nice to be sitting 300 yards out. I'm telling you, don't be as stubborn as me. Drop it. There's a reason the pros don't hit driver on every hole, and they're WAAAAAAAAAAAAY better with a driver than we are.
