Drills for mid irons (5i / 6i)

Title says it. Do you have any drill suggestions for hitting mid irons (5i and 6i)?

I think I’m coming in too steep (like a smaller iron) as I hit the ball into the ground or hit a grounder and often drive the tee into the ground.

I can hit this club, it’s just far from predictable.

Any tips or drills appreciated.

I have a coaching session in a couple weeks which is when I’ll ask to work on my 4 hybrid, but I’d like to work on hitting my 5/6i in the meantime.

Adam young on hitting down

I think his article is a good starting point of how is not necessarily trying to “trap” the ball, but that your swing arc just happens to be headed down at the point of impact.

Thanks for that. That all makes sense. I have both of his programs, so it looks like it might be time to go through the Strike Plan again.

Practice hitting them out of fairway bunkers. I know Adam Young has that drill in his Strike Plan andnthat one if quite good and gives feedback on the strike fully.
