subscribe to the channel if you haven’t done so already and hit the bell
notification so you don’t miss anything and if you like any of the products I
use there are links in the description below like my mad that kind of stuff
whatever just here to help let’s get to okay long irons mmm a nemesis for a lot
of people out there but I’m gonna give you just a few tips that will help you
pure these guys first off here’s what we want to do we want to start off with a
ball position that’s gonna be key okay here’s what we want to do ball position
is going to be one ball forward of your belt buckle okay your belt this is your
Center I just want to be one ball forward you start getting too far
forward with your long irons you’re in big trouble so step one is ball position
here center right there one ball forward is step one so ball
position should be pretty simple just line it up right right in your sternum
move it one ball forward you’re good to go
step two we want to make sure this shoulder is in the best position here’s
what normally happens you set up with the long iron you get the shoulder up
and going over like this because your ball usually is too far forward so just
one ball forward this is going to kill you you’ll never be able to hit a long
iron if this shoulder comes up and around so we want to make sure this
right shoulder for your right hand of guys girls out there okay is back and
down okay I don’t care if your shoulders are shut too much like you can hit a
long iron with shut shoulders but you can’t do it like this so fall forward
one ball just get the shoulder just push it back push it back a little bit and
just down just like one notch right notch back a notch down that is step two
okay ball position one shoulder back down – there you go right there
so you’re gonna look you’re gonna look like this
good ball position back down that’s step two third phase this is critical also
okay these none of these first three you can’t hit a long iron if you don’t do
this okay number three is this where are your hands okay here’s where I want your
hands so you got your good ball position your shoulders back and down your hand
take your hands in your middle okay and you’re going one notch forward right
here just a ball forward of your Center right there yeah your hands are here
this would be Center just right there just right if your hands are too far
forward with your long irons you’re doomed you cannot do it okay you’re
gonna hit all kinds of squirrely shots so those hands have to be just like even
with the ball and I want to behind the ball but I just want them right they’re
lined up it’s gonna be the key all right that’s third step good ball position
hand right here okay right there now let’s go over here I’ll show you the
last couple steps okay so step four is something we have to do now most of us
were taught kind of incorrectly uh through the years and it makes hitting
long irons like near impossible but with the little tweak a little fix we can do
it watch it okay you got step one two three now step
four you want your hands to come back here but you do not want to rotate that
face open if you rotate that face once you start rotating the face your hands
first of all that’s way too open you’re doomed okay
you want that face you want those hands in and that face like this which feels
shut but it’s not shut it’s perfect okay so those hands have to stay in here but
if you rotate you’re going to be here in your way off plane and forget it you’re
gonna be all over the planet like that so those hands stay tucked in and that
face days what appears to be shut right in here okay keep it in here got
everything all set up All Hands shoulder good to go hands in
face shut right there ball position shoulder pan hands in face
shut that’s step 4 you’ve got to keep those
hands in here without rotating that face open that’ll kill you okay here’s our
final piece now it’s getting exciting because you’re really close and it’s we
didn’t really do anything to your sweetie we’re not changing your swing at
all you probably have a good swing it’s just little pieces that we just need to
tweak a little bit to make you a great player so we got the ball position we’ve
got our shoulder back and down we have our hands just barely forward then we
have our takeaway which our hands are in tight to our body that face is not
rotating open okay we’re not shutting it but we’re not opening by the feel shot
next piece we got to work on these hips too many of us go back here like this
we’re back here and then you’re hitting it bad you’re cut we’re just gonna push
our right hip back we’re not transferring our way back and forth okay
it will transfer by itself you don’t have to worry about that you are weight
transferring but you’re just doing throat through rotation okay go here and
then from this point forward now you’re driving forward with your hips and
around okay you’re driving off your back foot forward and around okay if you go
back and then you do it it’s not gonna work okay so you just your backswing is
here rotation then you’re driving with your lower body forward a little bit
right here see that and around forward and around take it back from here or those your five keys to hitting great
long irons and I’m gonna give you a bonus tip that’s really gonna help so
six six keys to puring your long irons a free tip did you love that watch
keep your swing short just because you’re hitting a long Club doesn’t mean
you got to get all crazy on me okay she’s going around here you’re sweet to
be right right here your hands shoulder high that’s where you really want to be
now that’s what I’m trying to be I might be a little past that but I’m trying to
keep my my hand right here right here and then I’m driving with my lower body
forward and around so forward and around keep my hands shoulder high and so we just need those pieces to work
together and you’re on your way you’re gonna hit some great long irons

  1. Would this technique work with the 7,8, 9, P, A, & L?

  2. Great vidieo worked the first I tried it on the driving range

  3. Great video agree 💯 but what about after you hit the ball? You didn’t discuss follow through. Can you comment about the follow through?

  4. That's a pretty brave setup you've got there with that small net and hitting from as far away as you do lol.
    What happens if you happened to get the old 1 in 1,000 shank?? Are there houses and stuff back there?

  5. Good tips 👍🏻

  6. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, it absolutely helped me

  7. No mention of draw?

  8. Matt , thanks for the Long iron tips great video again. Trust me … i got all 6 tips down … now I’ve got to get out there and Do it! Peace

  9. Slow, slow, and more slow. Because the club is used to hit long, one's brain has a tendency to automatically speed things up. And every accomplished player knows that getting a little "quick" is a complete swing killer. How may times have you heard someone tell you when you are struggling, "your a little quick today" ? You have to very deliberately think slow on every long iron you hit. That is how you consistently hit long irons a long way. I don't care what this video says, if you are quick it is not going to work. Hell, I even deliberately walked to the first tee slow like Julius Boros did.

  10. I have to ask… Did you start with the small red coop and progressively turn into the huge coop and way more chickens? lol If so I know how that works

  11. Sounds like great tips I'm going to take your advice thanks

  12. Went and tried this. Really helped I hit the ball fairly descent but this seemed to help hit the more pure. However I did hook quite a few of my attempts. After watching this again I’m wondering if I my back swing was too long

  13. Love this video!

  14. Just curious… how far do you hit your 7 iron? I'm recovering from knee surgery and looking for a new, decent benchmark.

  15. I wanted to bust through my computer screen with my leaf blower and go to town on that yard.

  16. Good tips….but the hat is awesome….I want one!

  17. Will that shoulder step work for a driver swing also?

  18. Wonderful instruction. Thank you!!!

  19. You're doomed that'll kill ya ! 😂 Great video with informative instructions..

  20. i fuckin love you man

  21. These are great tips. Really helped me. But how do I get any power on it now?

  22. i love people that love something this much

  23. Thank you 💥🏌️‍♂️

  24. so we push off with the right foot? Man I wished i found you a long time ago. Weight shift always sounds complicated from everyone else

  25. Excellent Lesson, I want some fresh chicken eggs for brunch..Be blessed!!

  26. Hey where online can I order nets and a mat like that ?

  27. THE BEST VIDEO FOR GOLF IN THE WORLD BOTTOM LINE GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER

  28. Love these videos…is that the 17th T at Augusta 😁

  29. Never here some thing about the long Iron clearly like this before
    Well done..
    Keep moving more video

  30. Great video!!! Thank u very much for taking the time. I’ve been hitting my P through 5 irons pretty solid this year. But struggling with my 4 iron, hybrid and 3 wood off the fairway. Should I use this technique on my hybrid and wood ?

  31. This is actually pretty good instruction

  32. Here is my lesson on how to hit long irons. But the Cobra F9 one lenght irons. I got 4 iron 205 yards with a club the lenght of my 7 iron

  33. Great. It works so well for me.

  34. Great, absolutely GREAT breakdown + simplification of the steps needed to hit ur irons pure EVERY TIME!!

  35. Awesome tips buddy.. really improved my game

  36. Here's the deal. I watched so many videos (by pro teachers), on how to improve my iron play and this is the BEST one hands down. I took your pointers to the driving range and finally it all started coming together and making sense. I then played a round and scored my best game of the year so far. I was hitting my irons pretty sweet…most of the time.

  37. You’re the kinda of guy I’d still want to pay for lessons in person even with free videos like this. We appreciate you good sir 👍🏽 keep up the good work.

  38. Watched a few of his videos , and i must say i like his teaching it very simplified and not confusing. i like the long iron video. hope he has a video on the left hand grip. my problem more so with my longer irons 4, 5, 6, when i take my grip with my left hand then my right hand and step into my shot my feet shoulders are square but my g
    club face always seems to close. and im always tinkering with the face at address just before my shot.. any ideas

  39. I like this cat. Great fundamentals

  40. Damn….one of the best introductions to hit long irons….Great says http://project-par.de/

  41. enjoying your video tremendously. I'm a new golfer and these little tips help me so much. Thank you!!

  42. This video is spot on! Love your passion and simplistic approach to Golf! Your channel and instruction is one of the best!!!

  43. I watched this video last night and today I went to the driving range and absolutely SMASHED my 4-iron *dead straight*! Thanks man!

  44. Haven't tried this yet.. but wondering if there's any difference with hybrids… I just got a 'new to me' set of Ping irons and they came with a 4 & 5 hybrid. Couldn't do anything with them… I'll have to try these 6 hints!!!

  45. You are good 👍

  46. In regards to step 4, I do that for all my irons…even my driver. Try to have that “connected” feel. So I don’t have flying elbow’s. Would u agree or should I try other drills for my shorts irons and driver?

  47. Great video what can you do with a bad back.

  48. Concise and to the point. Other videos lose me after lectures that go on endlessly. I like your teaching methods and can’t wait to try them out.

  49. Great video, I'll try this next time I practice

  50. This was a winner…just came inside. Even with near night, using these tip had the ball sounding pure and mighty into my net. Thanks.

  51. Great video – presentation is spot on and showing the tip immediately after talking about it helps to me to remember the tip longer than is the case in many other videos I've watched.

  52. Mr. Fisher you waste no time.
    You're direct clear to the point without anything extra, good script. Repeating (really getting me to remember) each piece of a step, repeat the whole step then from the beginning to the end of the step, proceed to the next step.
    Really paving the memory.

  53. Your 2 tips (put your right shoulder back and down + move your hands one ball forward) were all I needed to clear up my long iron problems. When I went to the range on Sunday, I hit my long irons better than I have in YEARS!! Thanks!!!

  54. I absolutely love the charisma these videos have. Just by talking you make me feel better at golf 😂

  55. Awesome Mr Shorty, your enthusiasm and character makes it so much fun to watch your vids, the way you explain golf has made such a difference and my enthusiasm is back. After watching this video, it has already improved my iron play ten fold and now have added a Taylormade P790 2 iron to my bag, always loved my long irons but had lost my way, you have just saved me buckets and buckets of balls trying to find the answer, wish I found you years ago! Gday from WA (West Aus)

  56. Tried this tip today. Hit long irons, hybrid and driver pure. Shorter irons not so much but that’s another story. Thanks for the video tip, pro.

  57. Whats up Mr SG is it true you should get the driver shaft to you neck in your back swing or is it personal prefrence because your average golfer would have a hard time rotating that far back

  58. Theses 6 tips are the simplest and most awesome tips I have ever received! You Rock!

  59. Btw, these tips apply on the hybrids and fairway woods as well! Awesome!

  60. These tips work. Full stop!

  61. Another great instruction video Matt – even though I struggle to do all the moves you’re describing, I know where you’re going and what the intention is. I’m just wondering if anyone else has the problem that I seem to face every time I’m on the course – hitting the ball off the toe with my irons. I can line the ball up with the hosel and still end up hitting the ball right off the toe. Any ideas gratefully accepted!!

  62. One Ball forward in stance of center
    Right shoulder is back and down
    Hands one notch forward lined with the ball
    Make faced a bit closed on takeaway
    Just push right hip back and downswing hip forward then around

  63. I finally learned how to hit my long irons after watching this video, No more stuck at No. 5.. WOW! I didn’t know irons could fly so far” I’m very happy now.

    Thanks short game!

  64. You are the master

  65. All the tips were free! Thanks either way mr. SG!! ☮️↗️

  66. I’m having pulling the ball left

  67. Bonus tip is the best! I hit short….like Jon Rahm short. Thanks for the tips! Subscribed!!!

  68. Anybody catch the chickens clucking?

  69. You’re the best man. My game is the way it is bc of you.

  73. Sir, you are a good teacher.

  74. This video has been super helpful to me, the only thing that makes it easy for you, is hitting off a piece of fake turf. I have a tendency to jam my club into the ground.
