A most common fault is letting go cf the club with the left hand at ihc lop '6f the back swing. Remember this lelt hand nnd always Si-i|) it very firmly.

The club always sways back and finishes with his club head anywhere between the ground and ins shoulder and his weight is mostly on the right leg. Practice constantly the shilling of weight from right to left and allowing the club head to finish well over the left shoulder. The Long Iron Most good players use a slightly closed stance'' to facilitate (ha proper pivot and use of the hands on long irons, in addressing the ball, don't place your feet too far apart. Be comfortable, maintain balance throughout the swing. After selecting your club, whether it be 2. 33, or 4, let the loft of the club head do the work while yon swing to hit the ball. This action gives you better control, accuracy, plus power for less effort. Lei the condition of the lie determine the club to be used on the fairway. Even though the wide open space ahead invites a long smashing shol, saiisfncloiy results will depend on how well "you get the bnir'away. Make it an unwritten law to use the brassie only when the ball is setting up well Otherwise, the choice and the difference In length between brassic and spoon is compensated by getting off a satisfactory shot, when hitting with the wind off the tee, I advise using a brassie.
