Hitting the long irons

Rich Shrona

Q: I need a tip for hitting the long irons, 3-5. I hit the lower irons fine and feel quite comfortable. I can hit the long irons, however the feel and ease is just not there.

A: A couple key things to remember when hitting the longer irons is to make sure your ball position is forward compared to your shorter irons so you can have more of a "Sweeping" action. Try to keep looking at the back of the ball until you hit it, this should insure that you keep your head behind the ball at impact.
