Did you ever wonder why
00:09
you're hitting balls with your irons
00:10
while oftentimes you hit your short irons
00:12
much better than your long irons?
00:14
Well, it's because the long irons have a lot more length,
00:16
and a lot less loft.
00:17
This will exaggerate many of your swing faults,
00:20
specifically poor sequencing.
00:23
Today I want to share with you
00:24
a very simple three step drill that you can do
00:26
to improve your sequence with the long irons.
00:30
The first step is going to be to build a solid backswing.
00:33
To do that I'm going to bring in an extra club
00:35
and place it just off the instep of my right foot.
00:39
I'm then going to flip my club around
00:40
hold it in my right hand,
00:42
and I'm going to point my left forefinger
00:44
right into my chest.
00:46
Point your elbow out to the target,
00:48
and make a few backswing coils
00:50
where you turn back and point your left elbow
00:53
behind the shaft on the ground.
00:56
This is going to get us to load the right side,
00:58
you want to feel about 70 percent of your weight
01:00
on the inside of your right foot.
01:03
The second part is working on your transition.
01:06
To do this,
01:07
we're going to learn to take a step to start our downswing.
01:11
So start with a narrow stance.
01:13
Make that same good coil,
01:15
and start your downswing with a little step
01:17
with the lower body.
01:19
Just focus on returning your left foot
01:21
back to where it should be
01:22
for your normal-width stance.
01:24
That's going to get you starting the downswing
01:26
with the proper sequence.
01:29
Lastly, the third step to this drill
01:31
is to work on swishing the shaft
01:34
after where the ball would be.
01:37
So when we put it all together,
01:40
coil,
01:41
step,
01:42
swish.
01:45
Practice this drill,
01:46
I hope it helps you with your sequence.
