Cant find the center with irons, toeing everything. Anything jump out as to why this would be happening?

    A thing I'm seeing is as you're reaching the top of your backswing; you're coming up and away from the ball then staying there down and through. Effectively moving your swing plane back off the ball a touch.

    @aenemated I see that also. Any thing I can do to work on that? Maybe focus on keeping head still?

    Have you tried moving a touch closer to the ball at setup. As aenemated pointed out, it won't stop you from pulling back only have the ball in a better position for centre face contact.

    It's such a crazy hard game. There are so many pieces that can be adjusted to get centre face contact

    I had a similar issue years ago. My club pro told me “think of covering the ball with your chest”. That one thought has kept me in my posture throughout the backswing and downswing.

    Awesome thanks guys going to try standing closer and also covering the ball. It’s driving me crazy because I’m missing by an inch and it’s just throwing everything off. Will get better videos today also

    As previous post, definitely a lift after the top of your swing then a flip at the bottom

    What's kinda interesting is your head doesn't constantly shift around but is super steady then as you're about to begin your transition is when it happens; then stays really steady down and through.

    A drill that may help is the classic "swing to the top and pause for a beat," focus on maintaining your spine angle and then transition down and through. You'll see a ton of pros doing this one for various reasons.

    Been working hard and only hitting toe when I don’t focus on keeping my head still. Here’s a couple more videos.
