I've been really working on flattening out my downswing. I tend to get too steep and hit my irons/wedges fat. I think I need to work on getting my lower body through the ball and keeping my head up through impact. This is a 5 iron, would love to sweep it a bit more.

Thanks for the help!

Lots to like there, bud.  Iíd start with the leg action.  Youíre trying to keep too much flex in that right knee, which prevents you from getting your hips tilted properly, which prevents you from extending your spine, etc.  That alone will help you do a better job of controlling your low point.  

Work on wrist angles later.

Getting your lower body through more would likely make you hit it worse.

Your issue is restricted hip turn and not extending torso properly.  

Itís pulling your chest down and away from target too much.

Let right knee straighten some and point chest higher.
