IIn the last couple of weeks I have gone backwards with my long/middle irons and when working through the basics I believe that during my take away I am keeping the clubface close.
If I stop during my backswing when my hands are about pocket high, the club face seems very closed, imagine if the club face was a clock hand, it would be pointing to about 10.30. Should it not be closer to 12. On a positive not the club is parallel to the target line rather than too far inside which used to be a fault of mine.
Generally what effect would this have on my shots. It feels like I am trying to recover during impact by manipulating my hands. It feels very awkward.
Can anyone confirm if I am thinking along the right lines, or point to any material I can read to get me back on track.
