Anyway, I was at the range yesterday practicing. After working on some of the suggested drills, I decided to work my way up my bag. I noticed that I was hitting my mid/long irons, hybrids, and driver really well but for the life of me couldn't connect with my short-irons. We're talking flat-out shanks like I've never swung a club before.
I'm guessing that part of the problem was my swing plane was actually too flat for these clubs and, given the shorter shafts, I need to maintain a somewhat steeper plane (maybe not as vertical as my old swing, but not as flat as I've been working on with my instructor).
I'll be going for another lesson in 2 weeks and plan on discussing it with my instructor but figured I'd see if anyone on the forum had feedback.
