Do you want to pure your irons like a tour pro? Watch this…

Are you tired of hitting it fat, thin, toed, heeled, maybe even a shank?

Today you’re going to find the best way to pure those irons, get some distance back in there, and hit them straight, high, and knock down some flagsticks.

Matt Walter, PGA Teaching Professional at Vanderbilt Legends Club shows us how.

We’re going to get you hitting your irons the best you ever have. I have three drills that we’re going to do today, all of which are going to help you find the center of the club face with your irons the best way possible.

So, let’s talk about what happens when you hit a good iron shot. What are we looking for, dynamically, at impact? So, when we hit a good iron shot, it should be ball-first contact, and the club head should be traveling down, still, as it contacts the golf ball.

So, our divots are actually taking place after the ball, three to four inches after the ball, and not before the ball or at the golf ball.

So, if you want to hit your irons pure, we have to be able to ensure that we’re hitting the golf ball first, the club head’s still going down, and catches the golf ball with the divot just past the ball, and going through the shot.

Now, just because I said the club head is going down doesn’t mean your arms are going down, but the club head is still traveling down. Also, at impact, we want some shaft lean, right? We want to have our hands in front of the golf ball.

That’s the Holy Grail of golf shots everybody talks about. “I’ve got to have more shaft lean.”

Well, today’s drills are going to help you achieve that, and it’s not going to be in the ways you might think, where you’re actually going to focus on shaft lean.

We’re going to do it by focusing on some other drills that are going to bring it in because you have to have shaft lean to hit the shots the way you want. The first drill uses a towel…

How To Fix Your Slice in 15 Shots:

  1. Thanks, I never knew the divot was suppose to be that far away, I'm sure that's why I have such dispersion in my distances

  2. This is the best golf swing video I have watched, It help all aspect of my game from tee to green.

  3. Great drills. Just went to the range using the right elbow tuck drill minus the towel. My right elbow must have been all over the place but keeping it tighter to the body and focusing on my club head path on my back swing has really helped. 2 large buckets and most of the shots felt great, only a few miss hits (I'm a 22 handicap!) A few times I rotated my hips a little early and the ball went right, never a slice, just lost accuracy, once I focused more on a subtle weight transfer and letting the club head do the work, the consistency of the shots was much better.
