Got some fundamentals back into my head.
Squared up my address.
My natural stance was slightly open. Now, I just close it a bit, and I am square.
Keeping club face vertical/closed on takeback.
Trying to loosen up and release wrists at contact.
Like whip cracking the wrists at contact area.
I tried to transfer the "smooth whip, snap the wrist" mindset to the longer clubs.
Like most rec hackers, I think I have a tendency to muscle/jerk the long clubs, instead of smoothly letting the club do the work.
I think that showed a glimmer of hope, as I hit a few 5 irons clean and smooth, without feeling like I was trying to crush the ball.
I was hitting my PW very nicely, 100 yards, smooth and clean. Not over swinging. Pure strikes.
I was hitting 7,5,3 irons progressively worse. Thin, skulled, sliced, toe, etc.
Nothing like the wedge. Like a different player
