How To Hit Pure Irons

Jul 19, 2023

Want to learn how to hit your irons pure just like the pros? It's not as hard as you think! All you need to do is get into the same position as the pros when they hit their irons. From the down the line view, pros have their left cheek showing at impact and their heel off the ground. If you can do the same, you'll be able to hit pure irons.

Now, the problem is that most average players aren't in that position at impact. They try to hit the ball with their arms and just face the ball when they hit it, with their hips even with the ball and their back foot flat on the ground. If this sounds like you, don't worry - I've got a drill that can help.

The Drill
Tee up your ball and do some practice swings. Setup like normal and then go to the top. Don't lift your heel right away - start rotating your body into the downswing first. When the club is parallel to the ground, lift your heel just before you hit the ball. This will get you off your back foot and into the forward one through impact, which is essential for hitting pure irons.

Once you've done some practice swings, start off slow and easy. Hit some 50-yard shots to get the feeling of it. Don't go a million miles an hour - this is new and different and could cause a balance issue if you rush it. Also, take a video of your swing to make sure you're lifting your heel at the right time.

Keep doing this drill until you get better and better at it. It might take some time, but the payoff is huge - you'll be able to hit pure irons with the perfect trajectory and on target every time!
