Are you deadly accurate with your irons but keep falling short with your driver? Or maybe you’re the opposite: You’re constantly hitting solid drives but the same quality just isn’t there when you pick up your iron.It’s a fairly common problem. Golfers find it easy to master one type of club but struggle with the other. And all too often, they misdiagnose the problem.
A lot of people think woods and irons each require a unique swing. They wind up making unnecessary adjustments, confusing themselves, and complicating their swing technique. The truth is, the best golf swing for drivers and irons is essentially the same. The difference is not in the swing itself, but in how you approach the swing. I’m going to share a few easy adjustments you can make between your driver shots and your iron shots.
These tips are quick to learn, simple to follow, and they don’t have anything to do with your swing motion. Make these minor changes, and you’ll finally start hitting your irons and your drivers with equal skill.I’ll also share some bonus tips for drawing the golf ball with your driver every single time.But first, let’s talk about the most important difference between drivers and irons.
Drivers vs. Irons: Angle of Attack
Odds are good that the number one reason you struggle to equal quality between your iron and driver shots is this: The ideal angle of attack for each club is very different. When swinging with an iron, you want to catch the golf ball on a descending motion . . . right before the low point of your swing.With your driver, you need to do the exact opposite.
To get a good launch, minimize spin, and maximize distance, you have to hit up on the golf ball. This is, after all, the reason we tee the ball up to begin with. If your driver makes impact on a descending motion, like your irons ideally do, you wind up hitting the ball on the top of the face, popping the ball up, and ultimately hitting a shot that’s cringe-inducingly short. Fortunately, there is a mind bogglingly simple solution for getting the best angle at impact, whether you’re swinging an iron or a driver. And once again, it has nothing to do with the swing itself.
Adjust Ball Position
To get the right angle of attack with your irons, position the golf ball in the center of your stance. This helps you catch the ball just before the low point of your swing.
For your driver, position the ball more forward in your stance, just inside the lead heel. That way, your driver will be just beyond the low point and starting to travel upward again at impact. That’s it. It’s that easy. But if that doesn’t fix your problem, you may not have an attack angle issue. You may be neglecting another important difference between driver shots and iron shots.
Drivers vs. Irons: Know the Objective
When you pick up an iron or a driver, your club selection makes a statement about your goal for the golf ball.When you swing with a driver, your biggest objective is to hit the ball far. When you swing with an iron, your greater priority is accuracy. You want to manage exactly how far the ball flies and the direction in which it travels.With your driver, you want power. For your irons, you want control.You can achieve one or the other by making just a couple small changes to your swing approach.
