This is night school. I'm your teacher Martin Hall, here to get you playing your best golf this weekend. Well, maybe like me, maybe you've got a three iron lying somewhere around in the Garage or the basement, or the shed somewhere, gathering cobwebs, no reason to be using it to hit golf balls with. But actually, it's pretty good for training if you want. Should do something on a Friday night or a Saturday night. Before you go and play the next morning. I actually like to take my mint condition three i and that's probably about five years old. And I will put it against the end of a two by four. Now obviously there's loft on a there iron. But if I was to deloft it so there's absolutely no daylight between the, the club, the loft of the club and that 2x4, it puts me in a very good impact position . So if we can have a nice, full picture of me now. You'll see how when I take that daylight out, get rid of the daylight, it is a nighttime tip, isn't it? If I just pose that impact position , and I have no daylight between the loft of that club and that 2x4. I've got myself in a fantastic impact position .

Morning Drive: Hit consistent irons
Karen Stupples and Travis Fulton give tips for iron play in the simulator. Watch Morning Drive everyday 7AM ET.manner of different kinds of swings on both Tours, either by the LPGA Tour by the PGA Tour Nobody swings it perfectly. They've all got-- even Adam Scott who's swing is awesome, he still works at it. He still has things that he needs to improve on. So, everybody can make little adjustments. But ultimately, we've talked about the top [unk] in equipment make a huge difference. -Yeah. I think she made a good point. Everybody has different swings right on the PGA Tour , LPGA Tour But when you slow it down, you really look at what the best players in the world do, and you look at impact. They all control the Big Three. And for our viewers at home, I think it's important that you really get an idea of what's happening in your impact position And when you look at the Big Three, you have the club shaft, you have the clubhead, and you have the clubface. And I'll just show you real quick here a good impact position So, if I go from setup and we go to impact here, this is what the best players look like. The shaft's forward, the clubhead is moving down, so we're gonna compress the ball. And then, the clubface is squared. So many viewers at home and amateurs, what we see is we see the shaft leaning back this way. Now, the clubhead is moving up. And then, we start to lose the clubface control. So, just working on the good impact position some little swings, learning to control the Big Three is critical to becoming a better iron player. -Another really good thing that I used to do, you talked about impact position and I'm really happy that you said that because that reminds me of a drill that I used to do a lot. And it's a preset impact drill. I used to set-- impact, and then swing from there. So, I would just setup, and I would pose the impact position Okay. So, I'm posing the impact-- -Uh-huh. -position. And I'm gonna swing from this position. We'll take it back and take it through and just hit it from here. -Yup. Not too bad, huh? -Well, she missed her target about three yard-- -But I would do a lot of those just to-- just to get the feel of being-- -Yeah. -in the right position. We said it yesterday that not many people know what impact position is. -Right, That's the key, isn't it? -Yeah. -When you're on the range on your own, trying to figure out-- -Uh-huh. -the
