Fault: Weak iron shots caused by a poor at­tack an­gle Fix: Start with the club be­hind the ball to pro­mote a down­ward strike

To strike your irons with power and au­thor­ity, you need to make con­tact with the ball be­fore the club reaches the bot­tom of its arc. This down­ward blow cre­ates pow­er­ful pres­sure on the ball. Elite golfers find this strike by en­sur­ing their ro­tat­ing up­per body leads the club into im­pact, but the av­er­age club golfer of­ten needs a help­ing hand to cre­ate a sim­i­lar ef­fect. Here is a sim­ple ex­er­cise that will help you pro­mote the ideal, de­scend­ing strike.
