Hi All,

Ive been working with planemate over the last week or so.  I’m using it on my 60 degree wedge.  I’ve progressed to the one handed shots.  I’ve placed impact tape on the wedge and have noticed the following:  a)two handed shots I hit it pretty flush but mark is always towards the heel and sometimes I hit a hosel city shot, right handed shots I can hit flush more often than not and mark is towards the heel, left handed shots are really difficult but if I manage to hit one well impact is towards the heel.  I’ve struggled with an inside takeaway for several years now that isn’t issue with half shots and driver but makes hitting irons impossible.  Does the above isolate the issue to my left arm movement(perhaps excessive early forearm rotation)?  I’ve taken lessons and the instructor placed a piece of cardboard just outside line and made sure I didn’t hit it.  He also told me to try to make toe contact on the impact tape.  These were bandaids but I just don’t know what else to do.  Can’t play golf if u can hit irons.  Any feedback would be appreciated.

  • Welcome to TST.
  • Start a ‘My swing’ thread under the ‘Members Swing’ thread. We need video.
  • Were you fitted for your clubs?
  • I’m the resident king of hosel endeavors around here. Gotta find the source of your heel impact. Hopefully you don’t have multiple as I do.🙂

I tried to upload but it said the videos were too large from my iPhone.  I haven’t been fitted.  I’d love to blame the lie angle.  I’m 6’1” but arms are longer than average. I’m putting fitting off because I feel my iron swing is so bad at this point.

They’re not too large if you upload them to YouTube. We don’t host videos here.

You may be swinging “out” a bit more now, which can push the heel toward the ball more so.

You may also have your weight in your heels at setup, or a bunch of other different things.

    • Even in a big city, trying to ban guns only helps the criminals. Criminals don’t turn in their guns, only the law abiding citizens which are being unarmed. Pretty simple stuff.
    • Day 159.  Periodic 6-iron shots (at least one block of at least five minutes) during breaks in a long meeting schedule.  Indoors, off a mat, into a net, priority piece related to backswing length. I also tried quarantine day 13 drill (high pitches/flops), something I don't know how to do, and I think I was doing the drill wrong.  All my shots went left.  Thankfully, I was using foam balls.  I'm going to review the video later (time permitting), along with what people tried when those drills were released and see if their feedback applies to me, and try again
    • I changed out the the bag this year going over to Ping from primarily Tayormade clubs. Driver: Ping G-410   12 degree Ping G-410  5wood Ping G-410. 7 wood Ping G410. 5 hybrid Ping G410 5 iron to PW   I was fitted to play Orange dot which is 2 degrees flat for my irons. Playing around with the adjustable driver and metal woods. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    • It was a new course.  You get a pass.  Next time you need to keep it around 3 hours.  😁😉
