Blustery Day

Problem

You have difficulty keeping the ball low with your irons.

Cure

Although in golf it is usually advised to maintain a proportionate follow through as your backswing, you might find it useful in this circumstance to use a drill that ends your swing just after impact in order to help you keep the ball low. This would be especially helpful to use on blustery days.

Therapy

Use a one handed swing technique by swinging only with your leading arm. Select one of your highest lofted wedges. Set the ball near the middle of your stance. Offset little more of your body weight onto your leading leg. Only allow your arm to swing back until the club is parallel to the ground. Focus on making contact with the back of the ball. Do not allow the head of the club to pass your leading hand. Simply stop your swing once the club makes contact with the ground.
