Can anyone solve this mystery please, im hitting it great with my woods striking it dead centre of the club face (can see the ball imprints) however the short iron strike is off the toe, how does that work, long irons just off centre toward the toe, any theories fellow golfers?

I would guess your path is more left with the irons, could be a couple things. Do you change anything with your set-up?

Long irons and short irons have different swing planes - you might have the same plane. Driver/hybrids have flatter plane; short irons steeper plane. I'd recommend Shawn Humphries (Top 100 Instructor Golf Mag)'s DVD called Repeating Swing Blueprint.

no difference with set up, only clue when I ease up and hit three quarter shots with the wedge it really does get close to the toe.

I'd recommend posting a swing here

Something is causing you to have the path more left, my stock answer would be to make sure the arms don't bend apart. Practice following through like this, weight forward, arms straightish, belt buckle facing the sky.

I think so, not really thought about it, I just set up naturally so id guess that the hand position would be the same relationship to the hips.I am 6ft 2 and a flat swinger my irons have not been fitted I was thinking this may have something to do with it?

Whilst I'm not qualified to say if the clubs are causing the problems. I would say that at 6ft 2, you should go and get fitted for some clubs. Chances are you will need something a bit diferent to stock lengths etc.

Sounds like your clubs are a bit short if you're hitting out the toe. It won't be as bad with your long irons as obviously they are longer in length but it becomes more noticeable with shorter clubs as you are having to stretch towards the ball. If you can, measure your wrist to floor I would bet it's around 35"

    • Lol, I like both those movies you hated. Loved? No, but I liked them. I also liked Vanilla Sky too in spite of its flaws. To each his own I guess, and perhaps therein lies the rub that's makes % ratings unreliable more often than not. Or maybe I'm just a sucker for Tom Cruise vanity projects.  But I agree that Rotten Tomatoes doesn't help much at all in determining whether I'll enjoy a movie or not. It's still interesting to browse though, just to see where the pulse of the American critic is, if little else.  I also agree that the discrepancy between critic and audience score is a fascinating one to see when it happens. That's a fun list on that link. Let's see... what are some "bad" movies that I still enjoyed... The 13th Floor (1999) was 29% but with a 67% audience score. A totally flawed movie overshadowed by the Matrix, but still a fun sci-fi journey i think with interesting ideas in it.  I enjoyed Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012) that is 55% critic and 53% audience. I dunno, I thought it was a nice story... plus the Writer-Director lady is from the same town as me in NJ, so I always found that interesting that we grew up drinking the same water.  I've always loved the Cable Guy (1996) which is 54%, 51% respectively. Man, people really hated this movie when it came out, but I've always found it hilarious.  I thought Primer (2004) was an ambitious and cool sci-fi movie made on a shoestring budget. I'm not sure how it has only 72% from the critics given what they accomplished on a per dollar scale. Cool story that no doubt has its flaws.  One recent movie that I quite enjoyed that was totally panned (and for good reason) was Passengers (2016). It currently stands at 30%, 63%. Perhaps its just its basic log line that I like, as the film itself kind of loses its way at times. I certainly wouldn't fault people for thinking it was boring or lame as its execution and linear script was pretty banal at times, I admit.  But this random Youtuber made a really cool video about how to make the script for Passengers better, and I 100% agree with his suggestions. This is a pretty cool video if you've seen the movie already. His version is way better.  I think if they took this guy's suggestions, that 30% critic score would be above 65%.   
    • I'm not sure if this is what he meant, but I think you can you use the "feel ain't real" to your advantage. Meaning, if the feel seems right but the results are wrong (or video shows it's wrong), you can exaggerate a move to the point where it feels wrong and it might closer. Example... if I feel my head is remaining stable but video shows I'm moving it towards the target as I get to the top of my backswing, I might change to the point where I feel like I'm moving back away from the target. On video, that feel produces a steadier head. Does that make sense? That's not to say that feel will always work. In fact, there's a good chance it will not. Edit: I didn't realize this is exactly what @klinekahad posted. (it's good to know I'm not the only one who has used that feel). Anyway, maybe that's what @Buckeyebowmanmeant with his response.
