OVERVIEW

In the first part of her lesson with 9-handicapper Bill Wing, teacher Sara Dickson explains how controlling the low point of the swing is the No. 1 key to great iron play. Using a simple practice drill and keeping more weight on the front foot throughout the swing helps Bill groove the feel.

SWING THOUGHTS

Hit the ball, then the ground, with the divot coming in front

For solid irons, avoid hanging back on the downswing
