How to Swing Each Golf Club : 5-Iron Golf Swing

OK, in this segment we’re going to work on
the five iron. So you can see the clubs are getting less and less lofted, which means
the club face is getting more perpendicular to the ground. So this means the ball is going
to go further forward and it’s not going to go up as much. So a five iron is, if you would
say that the sand wedge pitching wedge and nine iron are your short irons, and your six,
seven and eight are your mid irons, the three, four and five would be considered your long
irons. So, you’re going to hit this ball, the average player, reasonably good player,
is going to hit the five iron anywhere from about 165, 170 to 190, 195 yards. Now the
pros can hit them well over 200, but that’s what they do for a living 8 hours a day. So,
as a developing player, you want to, you’ll make your goal to hit your five iron somewhere
between 165 and190 to get going with. So once again, I draw a line to hit the ball straight
from my target to my club, and I want the club face to be perpendicular to the line
of flight, so that just means that it’s coming in straight like that. With that line, I step
in to the ball. So I have good alignment and I’m totally relaxed, and because this is a
long club, I step back so I have plenty of room to swing, and I just take a nice, easy
swing. Because there’s no reason to, if you don’t have enough club, then you have to try
to over swing and then you’re not going to get a good shot. So just take a nice, easy
swing and you’re five iron will be great.


  • baa…baaa …. baa…Where did you find this guy???Great socks

  • He's no idiot, but he souldn't be set as an example of how to swing a 5 iron. Simply because it's wrong 🙂

  • well said

  • I'm impressed…..He actually hit the ball with that swing……Don't worry folks….He's the cart guy who had extra time to do a video….

  • Hey man, I like how you are trying to help, but people wouldn't laugh at you so much if you would just keep your left arm relatively straight throughout your swing…

  • I was hitting my 5 today and was just short of 190, it went high in the air though.

  • Thomas Somerville

    @zeppelin3333 wait if you think for 1 second that that minute and 38 seconds helped anyone in the world, you should be murdered for insolence. he preached nothing on the swing l the stance or the follow through, instead he talked about distance and showed us a very much poorly executed swing. i hope i never see you and this man on a golf course. Ever.

  • Thank you I'll try this ASAP

  • very helpfull

  • personally i think this was a great hel p i am a beginner at golf and it really helps

  • holy shit you have a horrible swing.

  • Dont miss the ball.

    you really have a poor swing, you are out of balance, and your stance is incorrect

  • Arrested Images Photography and Design

    no it is a business you fool, if you think they are doing it for kicks you have a lot to learn about how youtube works….this guy is a shitty golfer and teacher thus he warrants negative feedback

    everything about your swing is wrong, granted you are making contact. your stance is far too narrow, you collapse your left arm , and your right arm flys out like a chicken wing

  • What a terrific analysis Drew! Now fuck off!

  • Arrested Images Photography and Design

    this guy sends nasty messages to anyone who critiques him….what a bird !

  • Sorry but that's pretty shit teaching

  • Arrested Images Photography and Design

    I assume you are the shitty instructor….seriously buddy, learn a little bit about the game before you put yourself out there, everything about your swing is wrong, do some work on it then come back to youtube when you can make a valuable contribution now go practice

    the thing is, he is not helping! His advice is harmful to the development of a good swing. That is why they call it "expert village" you should know a bit about that which you speak…he doesn't….and that's that mate!

  • What a shitty technique and the only description about the swing was "take a nice easy swing"… "expertvillage"? That must ba a joke…

  • Thanks for the useless tip…

  • take a nice easy swing, and you r5 iron would be great…

  • nice effort but this swing is pretty ugly in every way, sorry to say that.

  • Looks like your entire body tenses up during the swing. Now I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that you want to avoid that because tensing the muscles causes a twitch, meaning the alignment you took before the swing is now very likely off.

  • I got these golf swing secrets “Jοmtοnο Naha” (Google it), read it in one night, and the next day at the driving range put it into practice. After making a strong impact, I attained correct divots with my irons. I was hitting about 10-15 yards farther with my irons than I was used to. Check it out yourself!

  • These golf swing secrets “Jοmtοnο Naha” (Google it) go over the golf swing in great detail. The book is based off of the swing model of all tour pros put together. I`m still halfway in reading the book however I could say that the ideas are quite helpful. Looking over this book allowed me to score Three straight low 80s rounds.

  • Useless

  • I can barely get over 200 with a drive. No fuckin way I'm hitting 190 with a 5!

  • I just completed reading through these golf swing secrets “Jοmtοnο Naha” (Google it) last week before heading out and putting the exercises to the test. Never imagined that after playing for Thirty years, my swinging proficiency could still be improved. The drills have assisted with small details I had never paid much attention to.. .

  • If you wish to find out about golf swings in details, you will find out about the strategies and tricks of appropriate golf swings through the “Jοmtοnο Naha” (Google it). The guide shows the precise skills as well as swing methods used by all golf tournament professionals. Halfway down the guide and I am quite amazed.
