Point 1 ..... Thanks for the comments about everything being stiff. Being a bigger guy the more I bend at the knees and hips the harder it is for me to hold stability through the swing and finish balanced. Comments noted and something I will work on.
Point 2 ........ 5 iron and above I tend to struggle with, to the point where I'm thinking of dropping my new 4 iron and going back to a hybrid.
Point 3 ........ I think I get too flat to the plane on longer irons, causing some fat contact, lack of height, and the feeling that I need to hit it too hard to get a result, but probably best not to assume these things and get someone to spot the issues rather than guessing and stuffing up everything else.
Point 4 ....... Newbie question, what is this OOM that has been mentioned?
Point 1 ...... Posture, and spine angle.
Point 2 ........ Man up and fix your 4 iron issues rather than admit defeat and go all girly and get a gaybrid. (What is it with you people over that side of the city and gaybrids?)
Point 3 .... Flat swing, check your driver video. (Nice that it stays on one plane though, perhaps just tilt the plane up a bit higher .. Posture and spine angle may take care of that) Stay down thru impact.
Point 4 ...... Check out the Vic Order Of Merit threads. Put your name on the list for the next event The Sands Torquay, as soon as the thread gets started. Be quick though as spots fill up quick.
And welcome ......
