D-Plane ? Part 2 : Hitting Straight Iron Shots

With iron clubs you should ideally be swinging downwards on the golf ball with the club head making contact with the golf ball before it reaches the bottom of its arc, which means that the club path will be pointing somewhere to the right of target, which in combination with a club face which is square to the target will make the golf ball curve to the left with draw curvature. By moving or shifting your swing to the left when hitting an iron aligns your club path and face angle which will give a vertical D-Plane and a straight ball flight.

"Hit down and swing to the left with your irons"
