I've been VERY erratic hitting my irons. I'll get the shanks and start violently spraying them to my right (I'm a righty). I experimented "putting" the ball with my PW and 9. They were all perfectly straight and quite high. I was hitting the 9 iron 80 yrd-- ---very straight.
Is there any reason I shouldn't just stick with this unconventional method? Obviously the ball isn't going as far (normally hit a 9 about 130-135 but there's always a huge chance I'll shank). I'd rather hit 80 straight a very high percentage of times. I don't know enough about the game, however, to know if this is a good or bad idea.
And how in the hell could a putting swing with a 9 iron that I'm not using a ton of force with drive a ball that high and 80 yrds??? That blew me away. I would've though35-40 yrds but those things were flying with barely any force. Crazy!
