I've been going to the driving rage with my woods and irons, and only played a bit on a pitch and putt course (80-110 yards)
At the range, I can usually get a solid hit with my irons, they go pretty straight, and more importantly they go high into the air. Last time we went to a different range, where you could hit off the grass. From the bays before, I was doing well. As soon as I got onto the grass I was either hitting the top of the ball knocking it forward a bit, hitting it extremely low, or taking huge chunks of grass out of the ground.
The shots I did hit, did all seem to go pretty straight. After about 70 balls, I'd managed to hit a few good shots with little divots but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I don't want to go and play on a course (even though it's just a part 3/4 public course next to the range) if I'm gonna be stood in the same spot doing a bit of terrible gardening instead of actually playing. What could I be doing differently at the range compared to hitting from grass?
