Charley Hull on Hitting a 6-Iron (Video)

While the LET may be having a slow year, that doesn't mean they've stopped doing things. Here's an instructional video from Charley Hull on how to hit a 6-iron. (Actually, it's down below the photo.)

I don't know about you, but I've always had a problem with 6-irons. I hit my 7-iron fine, and my 5-iron as well. But for some reason, I've never had a 6-iron that looked right to me when I stood over it.

Charley is very precise with her ball position. Unlike most players who simply say "play it near the center of your stance," she specifically suggests placing the ball one clubhead length behind your lead heel. In my case, that's slightly ahead of center. (Perhaps that's been my problem!)

Her other tip is to take the club away "low and slow" for a good tempo. She says this helps her to make a more balanced finish.

It's a short video, but Charley does everything fast, doesn't she?
