I was constantly hitting everything on the toe since last August. In July
of 2000 I was around a 9 handicap and had been as low as seven. Since then
my iron game got increasingly worse. They went everywhere.. off the toe to
the right, low lines left, no distance, topped shots , the whole bit. It
got to the point that I hated to pull one out of my bag. I had the iron
"yips". Lately I have had trouble breaking 90 which I didn't do too often.
I posted my problem about a month ago and received quite a few suggestions.
Well I tried them all and nothing really worked. Then I saw a "pro" and in
a few minutes he spotted my problem. I hope this makes sense but my left
arm was pulling up on impact and into a follow through. He had me
accelerate my left arm 12 inches past the impact point and made me keep it
low going through. He told me "twelve inches past and keep it low" .Presto!
solid shots when I can do this. When I achieve it I feel my follow through
is delayed and not quick, my right shoulder comes through low, I am staying
behind the ball and at times I do not spot the ball until it lands ..
especially with 3/4 wedges.
Unfortunately I have developed a really bad habit and it is going to take
time and practice to eliminate it. The m***of the story is: "If you are
having major problems and can afford it see a pro". I can't wait for
tomorrow to hit some.
