Fo­cus on your hand po­si­tion to cre­ate a more com­press­ing im­pact.

Fault: Flick­ing at your irons, caused by hard range mats Fix: Re­hearse a hands-ahead im­pact

Prac­tice can some­times hurt your game in­stead of help­ing it, and hit­ting irons at the range is a no­to­ri­ous ex­am­ple. Of­ten the mats we hit off cre­ate a nasty jar­ring im­pact for the de­scend­ing, com­press­ing strike we need with irons. We’ll in­stinc­tively avoid it, adopt­ing more of a weak, flick­ing ac­tion that com­pro­mises per­for­mance. Mov­ing for­ward, either find a range with ad­vanced, giv­ing mats or ideally hit balls off turf. But as you do, re­mind your­self where you need to be at im­pact with your irons.
