Many amateur golfers suffer from a slice. This is a fairly severe left to right ball flight pattern which takes away a lot of distance and can keep golfers from staying in the fairway and missing greens in regulation. To fix a slice, first of all you'll want to check your grip. Make sure you are holding the club correctly in your fingers as opposed to up in the palms. Holding the club handle in the fingers allows you to generate more club head speed and get your wrists involved in the swing which will allow you to produce more power.
Another problem which can cause a slice is starting the downswing by turning or opening up the shoulders before swinging the taylormade rocketballz irons down and turning the hips. Ideally, you want to feel like you turn your back to your target on your backswing and keep it to the target as you start your downswing for a second or two. This allows the arms to swing the club down and as long as your lower body stays stable, you are going to hit better golf shots.
Swinging the club too far off plane by being either too steep or too flat is a common issue which can cause golf to be more difficult than it should be. Some golfers swing the club too much around their body like a baseball swing with taylormade rocketballz irons. This is a problem because the club can get stuck on the downswing causing the body to have to come out of position to try and compensate or save the shot.
A swing that is too steep will also make it difficult to hit the golf ball well. Usually, when the club is too steep, there is a lift involved in the backswing. When the taylormade rbz irons are lifted to the top, it gets out of sync and it's tough to recover from this on the downswing. A swing too steep tends to create errant golf shots which travel right or left of your intended targets. Ideally, a golfer should aim to swing their club up high but over their right shoulder on the backswing. This helps the club get into the slot and produce straighter golf shots and increased distance.
Another common issue that is relatively easy to fix is tempo. Golfers who swing the taylormade rbz irons way too fast are more common than golfers who swing too slowly. The reason a golfer tries to swing fast is because they want more power and more distance. The problem is that they are trying to force things and it's more difficult to control the golf club if the swing is too fast. Swinging too slowly is not good either because the club won't stay on the right plane or path as easily. Swinging at a smooth tempo will let the club work more naturally and the swing will be more correct as it can stay on the proper path.
