THE CON­TROL SETUP

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best | Iron Shots -

Grow­ing up in Kansas, where the wind can howl, I learned that a low, run­ning bunt with a 6- or 7-iron can be bet­ter than throw­ing a hard 8-iron up in the air. To hit the con­trol shot, I open and nar­row my stance, which short­ens the swing. I play the ball just ahead of cen­tre, so I can sweep it rather than come down steep. Don’t worry about the for­ward ball po­si­tion pro­duc­ing height. The lower-lo†ed club will keep it down.
