Fat iron shots are the scourge of the average player. The club hits the ground behind the ball, turf goes flying and the ball goes nowhere. Get to the fat shot’s root cause —hanging back on your right leg through impact — and you’ll fix it fast.
Grab your 7-iron and hit balls while standing on your left foot only, holding your right foot off the ground. With all your weight forward, you’ll make a descending blow and ball-first contact. To beat the fats, strive for this front-sided feeling when you play.
