How to Stop High, Weak Irons
Think 'post up' for crisp contact every time

This story is for you if...
• The distances of your iron shots vary wildly.
• Your most common mis-hit is high and weak.
• You don't have a balanced finish.
You often hit short of the pin, putting extra pressure on your short game. But you can't just take more club, because sometimes you'll catch one good and overshoot the green.
Why It's Happening
If you're inconsistent with your irons like this, you're probably hanging too far back and pivoting around your right leg through impact (instead of your left). This causes you to release the club early and swing with a lifting or scooping motion. The result: High and weak shots.
Pivoting around your right leg on your downswing is the fast track to high, weak shots.
