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.
Yes. Similar to you, as I move up my bag, I hit less and less of a draw to the point where my 3 and 4 irons generally have a bit of a fade. The irony is that with my 3 wood, hybrid, and driver on my mishits, tend to be snap hooks.
My handicap isn't as low as yours and I recently went through a series of lessons. My instructor had me working on keeping the club a bit more vertical (I tend to lay it off at the top), and start my wrist break a little earlier in the backswing. This helped me to get around in time, otherwise I tended to be late and leaving the face slightly open.
Hopefully, this helps you, and take it for what it's worth, but a lesson or two may help. A swing adjustment, even if very minor, may be all it takes to straighten out the long irons.
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
