    Default Irons vs Woods , different swing?

    For the longest time I thought all shots could be done with one swing as Jack Nicklaus said. Is it true? I feel like Irons you really have to hit down on it and driver up.....
    maybe it's just me but I'm having a hard time swinging all my clubs the same way..
    In all the videos that Brian has, it doesn't really say that Irons should swing different than woods, am I missing something here?


    What about hybrids? How do you hit them? like an iron?

    any thoughts?

    I really don't believe you can put the same move on the ball with every club in the bag. I can't anyway.

    The notion that you make the same swing with all clubs has done more harm than good (to me anyway). Golf is a lot about intent. Hitting the ball off a tee (maybe 2-3" above the ground) with a slightly upward strike (maybe swinging out to right field a bit as well) couldn't be any more different than hitting a soft 9 iron into the green.

    Maybe a more accurate statement is that groups of clubs can have many similarities - SW - 7 iron, say. But I driver, 3W, 3i (hybrid) are going to have different procedures in my opinion vs the shorter clubs.

    I once shot 70, then I had to play 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18.

    Since being balanced is a pretty important part of the swing,

    Johnny Miller, during a tournament broadcast, suggested that one's target line balance should be:

    - more toward / over the left shirt pocket (heart) for wedge thru 7i (descending blow shots)
    - centered over sternum on sweeping shots -6i thru 3 wood
    - more toward right shirt pocket for the driver as we are hitting up a bit

    Of course one has to adjust for up-hill / down-hill situations.

    In addition to swing adjustments for longer and shorter clubs, I have found that advice to be very helpful.

    I"m hitting my short irons pretty straight now, 3-5i hitting a fade which I think it's perfect.
    Now I just have to learn how to hit the driver. It keeps hooking.

    does this still apply?
