re: Irons going left
If it’s a pul draw, as one poster pointed out your club face is closed relative to your target and your swing path. It starts left because of the face closed relative to the target and the turns left because it’s closed relative to your swing path. There could be the possibility that your swing path is also left of your target. There could be several setup issues and swing issues causing this. Best thing to do is go to the range, bust out some alignment sticks and experiment with swing mechanics and ball position. Only problem with this recommendation is that if you play a tour ball, they spin a hell of a lot more than most range balls so you might not be able to replicate the hook part of it.

re: Irons going left
Pull hooks are closed face with outside to in swingpath. Don't do those two things.

re: Irons going left
I've doing some major face shutting recently. Divot pointing right of green and ball landing left.

I had a great round going until I pull hooked one with 5 holes to go. I couldn't shake it after that. My wedges are fine, it's just the irons. And, I had been hitting amazing iron shots all day.

re: Irons going left
I have no idea what your swing looks like, what your alignment looks like, how you grip or anything but for me when i struggle with this problem it is because i do not maintain my spine angle through impact.

re: Irons going left
I was coming to post here. I just figured it out this afternoon. When I get lazy, I let my hands go back first without the club head. It shuts the face down. At the top of the swing, my wrist tightens up and the face stays shut.

Stiff left wrist at take away = stiff wrist the whole way through= money
