I would imagine your swing tempo is changing with the longer irons. That being said, most higher handicap golfers struggle when swinging lower than a 7-iron. A 7-iron is the lowest iron I have in my bag then it turns into hybrids to take care off everything up to my 4 wood.
I think our society is losing respect for ethical values these days. When I wear golf appropriate clothing to a private club it makes a statement saying that I respect the Club I am playing at. How much respect would it show is someone were and dirty old jeans while playing a round of golf and then going into the dining room and eating with that clothing on? Not very much from what I see. Rules, laws, ordinances promote a healthier society. I'm all for dress codes because it shows respect to other people and our society needs more respect.
Ya I agree. No need for a disclaimer-I don’t mind my dude.
When i tried to fix it, I couldn’t get my shoulders steep. Totally frustrating-so I gave up on it for a while -“bigger fish to fry” type of situation.
But ya, it’s ugly! I’ll give you that lol.
Seems like my lead shoulder is the problem..looks like it gets in the way- then the neck kinks.
-his shoulder looks like it has plenty of room to go under his chin.
Good point tho, my plan was to start on takeaway. (Rotate forearms and set wrists to get club more open.) maybe it will help get my lead shoulder moving better to begin with.
I don’t think it’s ‘causing the duck hook’ and ball striking is solid (as in the strike) But it is a vanity project, like my right knee was earlier-and hey that’s as good as it’s ever been.
Hello, I'm a double digit handicap. A Bogey kind a guy on most holes.
I'm fairly decent with my short irons. My distance with my 7-iron (standard length) is anywhere from 160-175 yds.
But as soon as I pick up my longer irons (6, 5, or 4), my swing falls apart. I'm not sure if it's the extra length---I'm ok with my driver (250-280 yards)----or if it's the added weight of those irons, or maybe a combination of the two. I feel like I have some difficulty in raising the club and generative good speed, which makes me think its the extra weight of the club that's hindering me.
Solutions? I was thinking of switching to graphite clubs (but I do like the feel of steel, especially in my short irons). Get fitted? (I am in the marked for a new set of clubs. possible to just reduce the lengths of my 6, 5 and 4?)
Workout and build more body mass?! I should be doing that.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
