Super Simple Trajectory Control

I found this super simple tip on how to control your trajectory by PGA pro Dr. T.J. Tomasi and I just had to pass it on!

The article is called Drop Down, Choke Down and it details a technique that Tomasi says Jim Furyk, Briny Baird and Sergio Garcia have all used to control their trajectory.

Simply put, it details how to pair your irons from 5-iron down to SW so you can hit low-trajectory shots without any change to your swing. Here's one key paragraph that summarizes the idea:
"Here’s how to keep the ball low without changing your swing or your ball position. Group your irons in pairs: 5-iron/7-iron, 6-iron/8-iron, 7-iron/9-iron, 8-iron/PW, and 9-iron/SW. Now you’re set to control trajectory like a pro. To produce the distance of a 9-iron with the height of a 7-iron, grip down on the handle of the 7 until your right index finger (for right-handers) touches the shaft itself. All you have to do is make exactly the same swing with the 7-iron as you would if you were hitting a full 9."
By all means read the tip. It might save you a lot of frustration, especially on a windy day.
