Heely With Driver but Toey With Iron - Is This Typical?


Recommended Posts

My "sweet spot misses" with driver are towards the heel, but with irons towards the toe.
Is this typical? What could it say about my swing?

Were you fitted for either one? Both?

The driver is up in the air. Do you address the driver toward the toe? If you sole the driver on the ground with the ball in the center of the face, when you lift it up, it'll be toward the heel.

Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly.
Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA.

I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness".
Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"?

I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
