I know that 2-iron is quickly become extinct. For mid-high handicappers, hybrid is a much better alternative indeed. However, I particularly interested in learning and mastering 2-iron. I believe that I can hit them purely, then hitting any other club shouldn't be a problem.
So, what are the fundamentals of hitting 2-iron? Grips, setup, stance, posture? Does it have to be very quick on the downswing? Comments and suggestions are appreciated.
There's 5 Keys to hitting a 2 iron solid Just backing up what others have said, weight forward at impact, flat lead wrist and you'll be fine. To help you can set-up with the hips pushed forward so you are almost in a "reverse K" set-up.
Answer: Put the ball up on a tee. Which is actually a useful shot that the 2-iron offers distinct advantages for if you can master it. Also remember that today's 2-iron is equivalent to the classic 1-iron in specs, so you can still pat yourself on the back if you can master a modern 3-iron. I have an old Northwestern "Shot Saver" (Ha!) butter-knife blade 1-iron. Usually takes me about 3 tries before I can pure one off a tee and a few more than that to hit a good one off the turf. It goes like a thinned 3 iron on a good strike.
The lofts may be different but the design isn't similar, even from an old Eye 2 two iron. Lower CG, more moi, more bounce/camber on the soles.
Yeah cause that's how good players swing..... slow
