6 Ways To Hit Your Irons Solid 

4. Trap the ball tigerand make a divot – According to Tiger Woods, it is integral to take a divot to ensure the best iron shot possible. To do this and strike the ball well, he advocates, “Try shallowing out your backswing — swinging a little more around you. That sets up a shallower angle into the ball and a long, thin divot. It also helps if you turn the knuckles of your top hand to the ground through impact. This is a clear sign that you’re compressing the ball, trapping it between the clubface and the turf, which will result in a divot on the forward side of the ball.”



5. Take more club thantim 5 you think – According to Tim Clark, a large problem that golfers face with their irons is that they never take enough club in regards to distance. Rather, take an extra club, and swing with a bit less power and a shorter finish. “I always make sure I have enough. Many times I play one club longer than normal and make a three-quarter swing with a shorter finish. A three-quarter swing can help you stay in control. And that’s not just your body, but the ball, too.”

An appropriate amount of shoulder turn is necessary to complete the backswing. To do this, “Swing your arms back wide, and make a full shoulder turn. Try to get your back to the target. Don’t be too eager to hit the ball: Turn to the top, and then turn through. If you make a good move going back, you’ll be in position to make a more level strike and stop hitting it thin.”
