Irons going left
For a while now my mid to short irons have been turning left. It is pull draw not a hook, but today it was more noticeable. I have a tendency to set up a little closed both feet and shoulders.

Any general ideas? Ball too forward? A little over the top?

Six Feet tall, but round and have been working on shallowing out. Seems to have been successful in shallowing out my angle

It is pull draw


Face is closed to the target line with an in to out swing. You’re more than likely not rotating and stalling if it’s not happening with the longer clubs

re: Irons going left
I've had that issue before, and for me it tends to happen when I get too quick.

Obviously that may not be the case for you, but when I slow things down on the range just a bit, I tend to be able to figure it out.

Make sure backswing is straight back.

Could be as simple as making sure you’re setup properly. Closed stance will cause a draw

re: Irons going left
Ball to forward in your stance. The fact that this isnt across the board issue makes me think its a position issue.

Pull it back to where it feels a ball back of center and see if that helps.

re: Irons going left
You're probably hunched over a bit which causes the toe of the club to be a bit higher than the heel...this aims the loft to the left (on lofted clubs). Try standing up taller and a little closer to the ball. This should help.

You should also work on your take away and keep the club head outside the plane your hands are on...

Went through this for a short while and fixed it with fatter grips.

I love golf advice. Not one person in here has seen your swing and we’ve got every piece of advice imaginable.

Swing path
Club face
Alignment
Grips
Ball position.


I’m not shitting on anyone, it’s just hilarious how many of us try to figure golf out.

Some of us have fought the same swing flaw and are explaining how we fixed our own problems.

re: Irons going left
I used to have the same problem. Might not work for you, but I weakened my grip a touch and made myself start working on a fade with every club. Eventually straightened everything out. I over exaggerate an out-to-in swing and swing left with the club face slightly opened and it cured the lefts for me

re: Irons going left
I have a neutral to weak grip already, but I felt like when I played the other day I was bowing left wrist more than I do normally, seems like with a weak grip that would potentially cause the face to close at impact.
