    Iron Play Tip: Iron Accuracy

    Let's say you hit a nice drive.  You have about 150 yards to the green. You take out the club that you usually use for that distance.  You set up, swing away, and off goes your ball, way right or way left, or, well, you know, nowhere near the hole or even the green.  Why?  Lots of possible reasons, but here's something you might want to practice. 

    Try using more club.  Instead of a 7-iron, try a 6 or even a 5.  Instead of a full, hard swing, take about a 3/4 swing.  You might find that you will make better sweet-spot contact and achieve greater accuracy.  


     That would be worth a few balls of practice on the range, wouldn't it?
