Improve your Angle of Attack for Solid Iron Shots

The goal in any iron swing is to strike the ball then the turf.  This is accomplished with a descending angle of attack.  If you tend to hit behind the ball or hit the ball thin, this is a perfect drill to help you learn to strike the ball first.  Use a 9 iron and place a towel 5” behind the ball.  Make a half backswing and let the left hand lead the club to impact.  At the finish, your left arm and club should be in alignment.  If you hit the towel before the ball, your left hand wasn’t leading, in other words your low point was behind the ball.  When you perform this drill successfully the contact will feel great and the ball will fly straight to the target.
