  1. I discovered the secret to hitting a "pure" long iron – hit the ball off a tee.

    Unless you have a lot of clubhead speed, you can forget about hitting a long iron off the deck with any sort of satisfaction. Use a high-lofted fairway wood instead.

  2. So 2 mins in and you reproduced my two long iron misses perfectly! ….????????????????????????glad im not the only one..back to the video as i have hope as he knows my pain after those two shots…he just may be the 1 with answers ????✌️????????

  3. A superb video Chris, I don't know why I haven't seen this before, but it's brilliant, information packed and I don't doubt that it has and will help so many people to better their long iron striking.

  4. When I did do my good long iron shots was when kinda treated it like a driver a little hip forward thing going on. But mostly hit like crap with 3 or 4 iron compared to my trustee 5 that can belt way further than 3,4 bout 150 to 180m. Good tips there ????

  5. At my beginning of playing golf 2 friends gave me one club for practising : a 7i and a 1i.
    Meanwhile I can easily reproduce your first 2 shots in the video 🙂
    Edit : Great content, thanks!
    One question : Don't you take divots at all with the longer clubs?

  6. Terrific advice thanks Chris, has definitely helped me with my 2 iron. One question, when you're using a 2 iron off the tee, do you use exactly the same principles, or slightly change your weight distribution?

  7. the best instructors on youtube can execute errant shots in a demonstration. very impressive- i top my long iron just like you showed. Thanks for the excellent explanations

  8. Because of these golf swing strategies, I was able to know “hows” and “whys” of a fine golf swing and its various aspects. My irons increased 15 yards and my driver increased 25 after I completed reading through the guide for the second time. Due to these developments, I am more confident and I`m having more enjoyment with golfing. You can find this guidebook by Google. It calls Logan Ballοyshot

  9. Sooo…what I really lack is Speed in the club. So here is my question – from where comes the main force? And I also wonder how much force comes from the trail arm. I always been of the impression that the trail arm should be more passive than the lead arm. You seem to get the main force from the trail arm. Yes, I understand that the body generates the power but how much is canalised through the trail arm? Thnx for great vids !
