How to blast (or but­ter) your iron shots

My keys for knock­ing down the stick – wher­ever it is.

As one of the long­est drivers on the PGA Tour, the driver is sort of what I’m known for. But power is re­ally an as­set with the irons. My stock 7-iron flies 190 yards, but when I need to get at a tucked pin I can push it to 205. I also can dial it back to about 150, which I’ve done at Bri­tish Opens to keep the ball un­der the wind. A 55-yard dif­fer­en­tial with a sin­gle club can make for a ver­sa­tile weapon. What­ever the range is with your irons, I’ll show you here how to man­age the short and long ends of it.
