So I used to golf a bunch as a kid. Got to college, sold my clubs and didn't play for 12 years.
Well I bought some clubs off of craiglist. Have gone to the driving range a few times and I've been pleasantly surprised that I can still hit it halfway ok. At least with a driver I can.
When it comes to irons, I get no loft whatsoever. I feel like my swing isn't too bad, and the ball goes somewhat far (~100-150yards on my 3 iron). However, again, I get no loft whatsoever. I see the guys around me hitting, and it seems like with no effort they are able to hit it farther and higher. I feel like I have to swing super hard to match their distances.
So I guess the question is, how do I get some height to my hits? I try and hit with the ball in the middle of my stance. Should I get it farther in front? I usually hit the ground directly in front of the ball...should I be hitting the ball more while the club head is still going down instead of up?
Any tips you guys might have I'd appreciate. Thanks!
