Grip It, Rip It, and Put Your Body Into It

Many people focus on the smaller mechanics of using their irons to greatest effect. But sometimes, it’s about the bigger picture.

 

In order to get the most distance out of your irons, try to put your entire body behind the ball during your swing. Make sure you have a slight tilt to your shoulders, so your spine is angled away from the ball. Finally, make sure to angle out your left foot, slightly. This helps your body powerfully rotate through the shot.

 

But don’t forget: before you start rotating your hips on the downswing, shift them toward the target a few inches – this should actually start happening before you finish swinging the club back.
