Com­press your irons like a pro

If you’re near a pro who’s hit­ting an iron shot off the fair­way, one thing you might no­tice is the sound it makes. A com­pressed ball off the cen­ter of an iron’s face cre­ates this dis­tinc­tive noise as it cuts through the air, like a burst of steam re­leas­ing from a pres­sure cooker. If you want your shots to sound like that, you’ve got to hit down on the ball. That’s key. Here are four steps— in­clud­ing a drill—to make it hap­pen. David Lead­bet­ter op­er­ates 34 golf academies world­wide.
