In between clubs
June 26, 2009 - Steve Anderson
Many times on the course you're faced with a yardage that's in between two of your clubs, say a 6 or 7-iron, and you're not sure what to do. There are several methods and let's discuss them now.
The first is to take the 7-iron and swing a bit harder than normal. Many tour pros and advanced players go this route as their swing are very solid and technically sound and they can give it a litlle more speed without throwing their swings off too much.
The smarter route may be to go with the 6-iron and swing a bit easier. The extra club will let you swing 75% of your normal swing speed and can result in a solid strike to the blow and better balance on your part. The other way is to swing your normal way and simply choke down on the club an inch. When your shorten down on your club you make the shaft shorter so it won't hit the ball as far and also make the shaft play a little bit stiffer which will take off 5 yards or so.
Try them all out on the range and pick the method that works best for you. Within no time you'll be a master at the in betweener.
