[TIPS] 3 Technical Faults In Using Irons

In Vietnam, many beginners usually practice with 7-iron because its handy and easiness to control. However, there should be a notice over some technical mistakes when swinging to avoid bad and wrong swing habits, which are listed below.

    1. Sameness in preparing and impact posture

In facts, this 2 postures are quite different. In preparation, shoulders push to the left, forming a straight line from the left forearm to the club shaft, with the club head behind the ball. While at impact point, shoulders, head and left hand remain the same but hips turn strongly to the left to create power. If preparing and impact posture are the same, obviously it would be a bad hit, with a backflipped left wrist and a hinged right one, the shot would be lack of power and beauty also. Don’t pay too much attention on hands, head or shoulders, let them follow naturally to the “lead” of the hips.

    1. Swing too early

In a downswing, there’s a need to maintain the 90-degree angle of right forearm and club shaft until get near to impact, then start to loosen the wrists and let the club swing itself by gravity. Beginner or amateur players tend to not hold the grip tight in downswing, causing a far-too-early swing before hitting the ball. This can be called a mishit or error shot when the ball travels a short distance only. But more important is, with this wrong technique, wrist and forearm will be paused in upward direction instead of going through in the correct technique. With other heavier irons, this mistake can injure wrists and arms unless control it well. Therefore, remember only swing at the lowest point of a downswing, close to the impact point for the maximized power.

    1. Swing too much to the back

When practising with irons, several players try hard to get the club so far to the back with intending to create greater swing. But if there’s lack of control, the shaft and head can easily be out of the plane, lessening accuracy of the hit. One way to mend this fault is when reaching the highest backswing, adjust the shaft’s dimension not to miss the intended plane of swing. Next, start the downswing by pushing the hips, then swinging down the club. This way will turn the lower body into a “frame” helping the forearm more stable and stay more on track, the club head will contact the ball at a more proper point.
