As a kid, at least in my case, the best part about going to the golf course with my dad was the tee-off. After getting detailed golfing tipsfrom my father that more often than not I would ignore, I would tee the ball up…. And BOOM! I would hit my drive and have the biggest smile on my face. I have a feeling that most young golfers, both current and in the past, have or have had this same type of mentality at some point. The problem that I ran into when I grew out of my childhood was that my iron play was extremely weak for one simple reason: lack of experience.
The lack of experience with my irons came directly because I didn’t really care about using them at a young age, and that lack of use happened to catch up with me later down my golfing career (un-paid). Unless you have a sniper’s pinpoint accuracy mixed together with some superhuman strength that allows you to magically drive a tee off shot onto the green with one shot, you’re going to need to play with your irons.
We wanted to give our readers – of course we’re talking about you – some great golfing tips from the wonderful instructors over at Golf.com that particularly touch on the topic of strengthening your iron shots. From personal experience, I know that my iron golf swing technique can use a little boost for this year’s golf season.
