Driver is only club I want opened face......   Rest square unless opening up a wedge for more height.  From a square address I play a cut or draw..... its such a small adjustment in swing to

Bumping this up because my ball flight is fairly straight with a driver, slight draw. Very playable, no complaints. 

 

However, my ball flight with irons is starts straight and then bends left about 10 yards. Sometimes it's slightly off the toe, so I get the dreaded gear effect hook. 

 

I play Callaway Rogue irons. Not the Rogue X, as they were way offset, but these Rogues do have a little offset. Is it possible, by design I could be setting up closed? I generally don't hit low running pull hooks.

They're probably too upright. Modern clubs are too upright by design now to help hackers with their slice by having the heel interact with the ground first and turn the face over. Problem with this is you end up with better players either hitting a hook or raising the handle to compensate.

Funny you mention being too upright.

 

3 years ago when I was testing new clubs, my swing was much steeper and they found that with the Taylor Made irons of that time (their name escape me) that upright +2 was best. 

 

Ultimately I decided to go with the Callaway Rouge Irons those apparently are flat (Callaway didn't have 2 degrees upright at that time). 

 

I've gotten better at swinging more shallow (Thanks Monte) so thankfully I didn't go with the +2 upright irons.

Standard is too upright.
