I do that sometimes. Ive been adressing the ball a little closer to the hosel with my longer irons and that seems to help me. I do know getting closer to the ball doesnt help a bit. Hitting it fat and off the toe is even worse , haha. Good luck with it , its a problem a lot of us are fighting this year.
@Sal , Try this drill. Put two tees in the ground leaving room for your 5 iron head and hit balls swinging through the gate. The tee on the inside will need to be put in at an angle to accompany your shaft angle. Make adjustments until you can consistantly hit balls without hitting tees.
