i am a big time golfer. i am 12, 5'10" or 11". I am a 9 handicap. in the last 6 months, i made a drastic swing change that brought my swing speed from about 70mph to 95-100 mph. i went from being a 180 hitter with 50% fairways to being a 250 hitter and 90% fairways [SOOOOO ECSTATIC!] however, since i gained the distance, i have lost power with my short irons and wedges. i have heard several pieces of conflicting advice. wats my problem?
Does Tiger Woods take steroids? Is there drug testing in golf?
Your impact position in behind the ball, it happens a lot when you being hitting long irons and drivers well, your body makes a compensation for the difference in shaft length. Work on ball position and your impact position. Best drill for this is with a SW, swing slowly and stop at the point where you would hit the ball, your hips should be clearing, weight on the front foot and back heel slightly raised. Hit balls in this position and you will begin seeing good impact and muscle memory. Then go to your full swing and enjoy the benefits!
