mvmac I tried keeping my hips from sliding back this morning, Its hard for me to tell if I still swayed my hips right despite putting my golf bag on my right hip. Let me know if you still notice some sway. I do notice on the downswing my hips sway laterally towards the target is this ok? I also took a video of my swing from the rear view, I couldn't get the video any further back because I am in my garage. Does my hand position, right elbow, and downswing look ok? For...
Because you hit irons with a descending blow and you want to hit a driver with an ascending blow

Thanks I appreciate that visual! I had my girlfriend holding my iPhone, I'll have to have it set on something steady. I definitely notice now what your pointing out, at the top of the backswing I am rotating around and the hips are back, whereas his hips at the top of the backswing are kind of bumped towards the target? 
What luciuswooding said it exactly true. I wasn't trying to brag about my swing speed I just did not and still don't understand all of the concepts on what causes certain balls and wanted to see if a shaft that is not stiff enough could be an issue. When I said my ball flight was pretty straight that was my definition as a beginner meaning I wouldn't be so far off course that the ball would be playable, not dead center fairway. Yes I've played a few times and have played...
  I've been Playing Golf for:​ 2 months My current handicap index or average score is: 90s My typical ball flight is: high The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: any and all bad shots   Any and all advice is appreciated. I am a beginner. I'm mainly trying to shorten my backswing. I believe I'm taking the top of the backswing to far back. Ive tried putting a glove under my right armpit but I still get the swing at the top in the...
Sure, after my next lesson since it will be on video and make it easier.
Ya but let me start by saying my putting is not good, my short game is not good. I hit the irons well but I don't have the ability to just dial up a desired shot. I can hit it straight with irons and occasionally the club head can be slightly open or closed and ill get a push or pull. With the driver I may get a pull but never a hook and I get mostly pushes and on occasion can get a slice. I don't see the problem with getting golf tec lessons and getting fitted for clubs...
Thank you for your reply. I'll look into a x-stiff, I still feel this rip 60 shaft seems whippy however it is much better then the project x 5.5 which was a inch longer (longer length making it less stiff)  The kick point being low for me should be good. I was getting way to much lift with a 10.5 and the project x. I actually just went to the range to try the new club and the rip 60 and the 9.5 loft really kept the ball lower and straighter instead of bombing the ball...
Yes that is my swing speed. I am not saying I am a great golfer I still have a lot to work on. I went to golfsmith to get fitted for clubs and said I was a beginner and recorded 120 mph. I thought to myself this might be off and got lessons from golftec as I felt lessons are the best thing I can do for myself and recorded up to 127 mph with a 290 carry. I felt my octane with project x 5.5 was way to whippy and I got way to much lift with the 10.5 so I exchanged the club....
