The 4-step process to hitting better iron shots

BONUS TIP! GET TOUCHY-FEELY
If you want to start hitting better short shots around the green, no matter how good your mechanics are, you have to develop a good feel for distance. One thing I like to do when I practice is to make a few throws with the golf ball around the practice green. Why? Simple, it takes my mind off the stroke and helps me to determine how hard I'll have to hit the ball. You'll be amazed that without thinking too much about mechanics, your natural athletic ability will take over by having your eyes tell your arm how far to swing and therefore how far to throw the ball. Try it. Your distance control will greatly improve.
