I have become lost trying to figure this out. Where and how am I supposed to make contact with an iron. When I use impact tape my ball mark is at the very bottom of the club face, almost on the leading edge and nothing on what I would consider the sweet spot. After doing research I have found a lot of contradicting information. It appears I should make contact with the iron club face somewhere around the 2nd groove give or take a little. Looking at my iron my brain cannot seem to comprehend how this happens without what I perceive as scooping, hitting the ground before the ball.
So I was hoping I could pick the brains of some solid iron players here. What are you thinking about when you hit an iron? Where are you aiming to have the leading edge of the club to be at impact in relation to the ball? Any swing thoughts that you remember being like an aha moment for your iron striking?
