Are you sure you don’t dead pull your iron shots? That is straight but dead left?

if so, it could be your club path... a big slice can be attributed to an OTT swing.

Dead pull irons and a big slice driver/wood could be as simple as that?

Pull hook could be the same thing too. Not 100% but could be...

It could be. They normally go where I want them to though. I'm sure my swing is more OTT than it should be but I don't think it is that bad. I'm playing Saturday morning and will report on how I hit my irons. I might go to the range tomorrow too, so could be earlier report.

So the test round was an overall success. I only hit 2/14 fairways, but all of them were playable (no OB or hazard and only one where I had to punch), and a good 70-90 yards longer than my 4i is going. Having 100-140 yard 2nd shots is a lot better than the 180+ i was dealing with. High fade was the shot shape most of the day (12 degree driver) and just focused on hammering nails. Very pleased, just have to refine.

If you go to the range, try setting up the ball on the tee with the logo at the back, then rotate the logo clockwise towards you so it is almost directly facing you.  Then swinging very slowly, try hitting the logo.  You should see a straighter ball flight.  As you get comfortable at hitting the logo, then increase your swing speed.
