Try these two ways to add loft:
- Set your clubface so it’s pointing slightly right of your target at address.
- Picture your hands above the ball’s position, not pushed forward, at impact.
- Keep your body turning through the shot.
- Swing your hands high to the finish (right).
How do I get more loft on my irons?
To create additional loft, have the feeling that your wrists are re-hinging faster on the follow-through side, creating an “L” between your right forearm and shaft halfway through. This encourages the right hand to unhinge a little sooner through impact, and not remain so bent back, adding more loft to the face.
Why am I hitting my irons so low?
One reason amateurs tend to hit irons too low is that they narrow their swing radius, taking the club back by letting the lead arm (left arm for right-handers) bend too much. A great way to keep the left arm from collapsing is by actually focusing on the right arm as you take the club back.
Can you adjust loft on irons?
You can easily bend the lofts and lies to be progressively consistent from one club to the next with zero tolerance. You can also bend the angles to a consistent specification precisely fit for any golfer.
Why can’t I hit my 5 iron?
Some golfers make the mistake of playing the five iron with a ball position that is right in the middle of their stance. This will make it very difficult to even get the ball up off the ground. A proper ball position with a five iron is closer to your left foot than it is to the middle of your stance.
How high should you tee up an iron?
As a general rule, tee up an iron shot so the ball is just above ground level. It should look like the ball is sitting on the top of the short blades of grass on the tee. For a hybrid club, tee the ball slightly higher, about a half inch above ground level.
Why am I Skulling my irons?
Skulling the ball often results from a golfer lifting up just before impact – raising his hands, or raising the upper body which in turn lifts the hands. And that can be caused by a feeling of trying to help the ball get into the air – a sense that you need to “scoop” the ball up to get it airborne.
What gives a golf ball loft?
The loft of the club corresponds to the angle made by the clubface and the ground. As such, depending on the shot at hand, a golfer can decide on the club to pick in accordance to how high the shot needs to travel, on top of the distance it needs to travel.
