This for me is the litmus test.

People on the range should stop kidding themselves with their flaw masking clubs. No wonder many cant hit driver.

A 2/3 iron blade will identify you flaws. And the only way to improve is to tackle these flaws head on. Face the challenge instead of running away from it and using those damage limitation oversized cavity clubs.

I liken it to someone who has a bad tooth but rather than pull it out uses pain killers to mask the pain.

Lots of people aren't interested in your 'hard lessons' approach. They have limited time already, and they just want to get in a groove on the range and go out and have some fun on the course.

However, you are probably right that if you master the long irons, the shorties will follow. And the probability for their driver is improved with long iron mastery. But then, why not hit a flaw masking 21* hybrid and move along? Then you only have the driver and 3 wood to work on?
yeah

A common enough misconception, but unless all your clubs are the same length, your setup (and thus swing) is different with each club. That's why you practice with them all equally.

Quite a few tour pros don't use 3 irons or 3 iron blades anymore, are they not good either?

To tell you the truth, I would have difficulty hitting a 3 iron blade, especially since my strongest iron in the bag is a 6 cavity back. By reading the OP's post, I guess I should quit the game to please him, and those like him. On the other hand, I think i'll keep playing and try to avoid pairing up with these types who have such 'bluenose' philosophys.

Guess how many times I needed to pull out a 3 iron yardage type club during my last few rounds?  I'll give you a hint, it is lower than 1.

Playing to your strengths and hiding your weaknesses.  One sounds better than the other and they are both the same.

Hitting a 3 iron blade consistently means... you can hit a 3 iron blade consistently. That's it.

Iron swings are different from hybrid or fairway wood swings and are different from driver swings and are different from putting. All need differing AoA and paths, etc...

Nice theory, but, I don't think flushing a 3 iron transfers to the rest of the game as much as you imply.

I like this thread, for 2 reasons.

1) OP is a self-admitted 35 handicap, so everyone will immediately dismiss whatever point he is trying to make.

2) He's acting authoritatively, which will offend many of the oversensitive forum members (i.e. MOST forum members)






Playing devil's advocate, OP has a point. Pro's that do not play 3-iron blades do so because they are longer or more consistent with their hybrids/GI clubs. They CAN hit a 3 iron blade, but not with the regularity of the club they've replaced it with. Say they pure a 3-iron blade 75% of the time but hit their GI well 90% of the time. They play the GI because it's a more productive option over time, not because they CAN'T hit the blade.

Secondly, I do like the idea of practicing with more challenging clubs from time to time. Hitting an unforgiving club whether it's an iron or putter helps to develop good contact which will transfer to the clubs you play with. Practicing with very forgiving clubs CAN POSSIBLY mask flaws.







Now with all of that said, it's ironic that a 35 handicap has a "litmus test" that he judges others by. It's like someone walking into the gym for the very first time and telling the powerlifters that they are using bad training methods. Whatever point he may have is lost in his lack of credibility... but a point might exist in there somewhere.

Easy..... (grabs the blow gun and uses it as a club to kill a fly that has landed on the table, smashing the blow gun into pieces in the process).

I'll take the player who can consistently hit their wedges within 15-20ft EVERY DAY over someone who can hit their 3 iron blade consistently. Some just don't have the swingspeed to hit a 3 iron well, no way should that indicate they're "not a great player".

A pretty simple game we play, get it in the hole in the fewest strokes possible.

I don't have a 3 iron blade, but I know I can hit one consistently - consistently low and cutting about 100 yards (maybe).

But I hit my 4 iron about 230 last week (ok, so it was a little downhill).

I would be extremely impressed with your hand-eye coordination and hand speed if you could kill a fly with a golf shaft.

But, of course, only if your spin numbers were low. Nobody wants to kill a fly with lots of spin.

golf is supposed to be fun. I can still play a 2 iron but I chose not to because I want something easier to hit. tons of tour guys carry hybrids in place of 2,3 and 4 iron. golf is about minimizing the misses, right?

I get what he's saying. It's a good way to fine tune ball striking. But ball striking is only 1/3 of the game. The other 2/3 is short game and putting. And those are where consistency comes from. And those are where all the truly good players i've seen spend their practice time.

What a pretentious and self-aggrandizing post. Like, even for WRX this is bad.

Like, OMG!

Lots of people aren't interested in your 'hard lessons' approach. They have limited time already, and they just want to get in a groove on the range and go out and have some fun on the course.

However, you are probably right that if you master the long irons, the shorties will follow. And the probability for their driver is improved with long iron mastery. But then, why not hit a flaw masking 21* hybrid and move along? Then you only have the driver and 3 wood to work on?

Everybody has time - they just don't use it wisely. The other day I was reading a post by someone who had over 5000+ posts complaining about stuggling to hit irons and having no time - yeah but he had enough time to make over 5000 posts.

Oh and you call it the 'hardwork approach' I call it 'improving'. The real hard work is playing with clubs masking your flaws and beating yourself up wondering why your swing is inconsistent. It's not that difficult use your range time working with blades
