Hey, Bunt, if you're skying the ball a lot, it means you're releasing too early on your downswing and "scooping" the ball. I had a problem with that until I learned how to delay my release. If you look a video of your swing, I'll bet your clubhead is ahead of your hands at impact. A few lessons with your local pro should do wonders...especially if you already hit a one-iron! As Lee Trevino once famously said..."Only God and Jack Nicklaus can hit a one-iron!".Thanks for your well-intentioned advice, but I don't sky the ball, and I don't have a "scooping" motion, I simply have a high launch angle with a lot of spin. I am a better than scratch golfer who played at a NCAA D-1 level, who has played in several USGA Championships (although admittedly have only made the national cut once).
Here is the full quote from Trevino... "If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron."It's one of the greatest quotes in golf history. And Lee should know, He was hit by lightning twice.
