Had a better session at the range today. It's still very hard for me to get my shoulders steep enough with the longer clubs. I've found that I wasn't keeping the clubhead outside my hands, which lead to me getting way too far across the line and fatting the shit out of the ball.
When I hit the ball well I was flying my 9-iron 150 and my LW 100, which is a significant distance increase.
A great shot is when you pull it off. A smart shot is when you don't have the guts to try.
