Lots of people suppose that there’s a vital distinction between a driver and an iron swing. In my view sure there some variations, however these are primarily associated to the setup, not essentially to the dynamics. Static setup variations for instance are ball place, shaft angle or backbone tilt. Dynamic variations can doubtlessly present up in additional intense COP shifts, greater verticals and extension charges and / or barely completely different launch patterns.
Concerning the movement, they’re and must be structurally the identical. As a matter of reality loads of gamers wrestle with contact, route and effectivity whereas attempting to carry out a „completely different“ transfer with the driving force, fairly often carefully associated to the intention to hit „up“ on the ball.
Structural mechanical points normally impact each membership within the bag. A few of them is perhaps worse or higher with the woods, a few of them are worse or higher with the irons, completely relying on the gamers technical tendencies.
Thats why I’m not a fan of youtube movies for instance with titles „easy methods to hit a fairway wooden“. There aren’t any actual technical variations between a 6 iron shot and a shot with a 5 wooden. The 5-wood is simply longer and sooner and due to this fact tougher to hit, since extra prone for eventual timing and sequence errors.
