irons?

Anyone experiencing this??? Any insight appreciated..

Hey - I suck with the woods, but am great with the irons.  We could make an
awesome scramble team!

Being longer, the woods are more suited to a flatter swing and
sweeping the ball off the ground while the irons have more
of an upright swing and you need to pinch the ball off the ground.
Could be that your setup for the woods is okay, but you don't make
the small adjustments needed for the irons; could be your irons are
way off in their fit for your body size. Only a pro can tell for
sure, but you might want to try the drill of laying some clubs
down in a '+' or 'H' pattern on the ground so that you get the
setup exactly where you want it.
