Anyone else only slice long irons?

I am dead accurate with my short irons/wedges 7-pw, but anytime I take the same swing with 6-4 irons I borderline slice the ball. Anyone else have this problem? I have to literally take a big hook swing to hit those irons straight. Any suggestions? Maybe even look into having those irons set upright a little bit? I am a 7 handicap trending towards lowering it and play 712 Ap2 kbs ctaper x-stiff 4-pw.

I had this problem and solved it with a tempo drill....I think that most will swing harder with long irons trying to get ball up and achieve distance...Take your 8 and 4 to the range and alternate swings until your tempo is the same....Do the same with a 9 and 5 and then a pw and 6...With the longer irons its harder to feel the club head weight so tempo should be apparent. good luck

Most golfers use the same tempo with long clubs and shorter clubs the longer club you use you should always slow down your tempo without slowing down you tempo it can cause fast back and that takes all rythem out of it. On long irons you want good rythem because there harder to hit
