Long irons help
Made a swing change (more of a setup change)and I’m still undecided on it. In all honesty it’s worked well and I’m more consistent on my hybrid, short irons and wedges. the changes were to strengthen my grip even more on my left hand (to the point I see 4 knuckles) and weaker with my right (right handed golfer) and slightly further away from the ball with ball positions the same as before - no changes as far as forward or back on the lead/trail side. The change was suggested by a coach that I got a gift certificate for at a local course - and had actually heard good things from. He also wants me to get to parallel on the backswing, which has proven difficult for me due to flexibility issues.
the problem arises when I hit my 4-6 (and driver initially but I think I’ve nailed down my driver issue).
I previously had no Issue elevating long irons. Now I have very flat and low trajectory with them, which I don’t like, and I seem to have a loss of distance creating a huge gap on carry between my 7 and my hy. I carry my jacked loft 7i between 160-170, my hy 195-200 on avg. by eyeball estimates. The carry now via eyeball tracker is 150-170 on 4/5/6 because of the trajectory, on all three clubs.
i realize that it’ll be much more helpful to have a video at least but I frankly don’t have one. Just looking for some ideas that might help me get back on track with the long irons. Thanks to those that take on this challenge.
