There is nothing like having a strong iron game.
00:25
If your shots are coming up a little short and weak,
00:26
here's a really simple swing thought
00:28
to help put more zip in your hit.
00:31
Take any iron and imagine what impact would look like
00:34
if you had to increase your distance capability
00:36
by a full two clubs.
00:38
To pull it off, you'd have to take a bunch of loft
00:40
off that club face.
00:42
Try rehearsing to the ball and feel the movement
00:44
that would accomplish this goal.
00:47
You should notice your hands well forward
00:48
with your arms long and those hips
00:51
really driving towards the target.
00:53
After a few practice moves, take a full swing,
00:55
staying committed to your two club up mentality.
00:58
The ball should really jump off the face
01:00
with a penetrating flight and a much longer carry.
01:04
Remember all great iron players
01:06
de-loft that club face through impact.
01:08
When hitting those important approach shots,
01:10
remember to think two club up
01:11
and you'll hammer the ball, with authority, to the green.
