    I am having difficulty getting height on my 3 iron. It feels like I am making good contact and I can even make a divot after the ball. The ball flight goes about the distance of my 6 iron before it lands but then it rolls a long long way. My 4 iron is not so bad as I can hit it straight with medium height and decent distance. My 3 and 4 irons are the same length by the way.

    Long irons can be hard to hit. You want to make contact with the ball right at the bottom of the swing arc. Like sweeping the ball off the ground. You may have the ball too far back in your stance and that may be why you’re not getting the height. You have to have an accelerated turn. You can’t turn through slow and smooth and expect to get distance. You also my consider Hybrids… they’re easier to hit.
