I am so frustrated. I hit well (well enough) with all my woods and putt reasonably well. When I'm not plagued with my iron problem, those are very nice shots too. But invariably I run into this catastrophic problem only with irons--the ball will shoot off violently to my right. It's not even a slice. It's a massive shank. I will try to get a vid of the swing but after trying to dissect it over and over again on the range I think my club face may be opening up. Would that cause such a terribly erratic shot like the one I described??
Secondly, why does this never happen with woods? Sure, I can slice my drives, but I never have once hit a shot that just immediately shoots off to my right, at like a 45 degree angle. Hell sometimes they are damn near 90 degrees lol. Obv not really but perhaps as bad as 60 degrees.
I would think if I open my club face with irons that I would with woods too?!?
I'm not sure why I would open my club face but I think years of baseball may be the culprit. Sometimes I find myself putting my weight on my back foot, and my torso falling backwards, thus possibly opening up the club face?? I'm not sure the club face would open given that info but it seems like a legitimate possibility.
I'd greatly appreciate any thoughts and input.
Thanks in advance!
