PostSubject: Weight distribution for Iron shot   Fri Mar 05, 2010 10:15 am

I am wondering what should be the correct weight distribution on your feet when hitting long, mid and short irons from the fairway (not off the green shots) on a flat lie.

On the longer irons, I tend to be 50/50 on both feet while on the shorter ones, probably 60 % on right feet (I am right hander). Wondering if this is about right ?

hi

for short iron, i usually had my weight on my left and keep it there throughout the whole swing and 50/50 balance for mid iron and hybrid clubs.

Ever heard stack and tilt swing? It's good. I been using it all this while. It works. Most of the weight on the left side. About 70-30. Check it out on u tube. It came out so many time on golf digest.

Urgh!

Stack and tilt.

Ruined Mike Weir if you asked me.

Such a good player before tilting.

I thought we are supposed to have weight transfer for all the shots?

For right haander u feel more weight on the left side thant right side

i try keep between 60-40 to have the feeling of compresing the ball even before i swing .... better ask profesionnel they will

for set up because after u must transfer weight on ur back and on the front

Back swing : 20-80
Finishing : 80-20
