Can anyone solve this mystery please, im hitting it great with my woods striking it dead centre of the club face (can see the ball imprints) however the short iron strike is off the toe, how does that work, long irons just off centre toward the toe, any theories fellow golfers?

I would guess your path is more left with the irons, could be a couple things. Do you change anything with your set-up?

no difference with set up, only clue when I ease up and hit three quarter shots with the wedge it really does get close to the toe.

Are your hands same distance from body for both woods and short irons ?

Long irons and short irons have different swing planes - you might have the same plane. Driver/hybrids have flatter plane; short irons steeper plane. I'd recommend Shawn Humphries (Top 100 Instructor Golf Mag)'s DVD called Repeating Swing Blueprint.

I'd recommend posting a swing here

Something is causing you to have the path more left, my stock answer would be to make sure the arms don't bend apart. Practice following through like this, weight forward, arms straightish, belt buckle facing the sky.

I think so, not really thought about it, I just set up naturally so id guess that the hand position would be the same relationship to the hips.I am 6ft 2 and a flat swinger my irons have not been fitted I was thinking this may have something to do with it?

Whilst I'm not qualified to say if the clubs are causing the problems.

I would say that at 6ft 2, you should go and get fitted for some clubs. Chances are you will need something a bit diferent to stock lengths etc.

Sounds like your clubs are a bit short if you're hitting out the toe. It won't be as bad with your long irons as obviously they are longer in length but it becomes more noticeable with shorter clubs as you are having to stretch towards the ball. If you can, measure your wrist to floor I would bet it's around 35"
