Why you should swing easy with short irons
enerally speaking, avoid trying to hit your short irons hard.The more aggressively you swing, the more height you’re likely to create with those lofted clubs, so the ball will tend to go a shorter distance. If you’re lucky, you might get to the front of the green – that’s why you see so many approach shots come up short of the ag.There’s a much more e ective and reliable way to hit your short irons. Start by following these simple steps.
Club selection is Step One to controlling distance. Let’s say you’re 80 metres out, and you know that’s the maximum you can hit your sand wedge. Instead of pulling that club, take a longer one, like your gap or pitching wedge, to hit the shot.
