  It's hard to explain without picture or video, but I will try.   Basically, this drill is to help you prevent rolling your wrists (too much) on the follow-through.  Keeping your right wrist firm will help you to keep the club-face square at and through impact, and if you are able to control the face, you'll be able to hit a cut or draw on demand with the firmness or lack of firmness of your wrists.    At impact, your right wrist should be in line with your left thigh...
2 Words - Face control   Drill: Go to the range with about 50 balls.   Lay down an alignment stick that lies just below the heel of your club at address. Using only your right hand (choking down on the club obviously), strike the ball while on plane with focus on keeping your right wrist firm at impact and in your follow-through If you were to draw a line on your wrist, it should match the shape (parallelism) of the face of the...
Your grip can change your swing completely.  I'd say it is the third most important mechanic to a golf swing, behind swing plane, and head movement.

1) How long did it take to break 70? If it took you 2 years, was that 2 years from the first time you picked up a golf club, or did you just play around for the first year and then take the second year seriously?   The first time I broke 70 was my Junior year of high school.  I've been swinging a club since I was 6 months old, but I didn't start playing seriously until I was about 10 years old. (Tournaments and such.) The first time I shot in the 70's was my freshman...
Honestly, I find people sizing themselves up, if that makes any sense.     Basically what i'm trying to say is this.  Let's say Player A and Player  B are playing stroke play against one another.  If Player A gets off to a hot start, say going Birdie, Par, Birdie.  Player B will end up psyching himself out by thinking he needs to play at Player A's level, even when the fact of the matter is, Player A is just playing out of his mind, and this doesn't happen very often...
Ok, so if I want to teach her how to play, then I need too...   Not mention shoes Don't push her to much, let her learn at her own pace Not mention shoes And, not mention shoes   I think I got it. :-)
I practice about 1 and 1/2 hour every day after work and this is my routine.  Take from it what you will, it has worked for me so far.   Driving Range - About 75 balls (40-50 minutes) Order: SW, PW, 7i, 4i, 9i, 6i, 3i, 8i, 5i, 4w, 54degrees, Driver, LW (58degress) Method: For the first 5 or so shots, i'll lay down alignment sticks for the path of my club to follow on the takeaway and follow-through. After that, i'll take away the alignment sticks, stand back...
  Knowing my girlfriend... that is very accurate... I'll just let her wear sneakers for now.  She doesn't have much of a powerful swing, so I don't think she'll absolutely need the stability. :X
I can relate.  Whenever my swing isn't top notch and "loose" as you described, I try to sharpen up my mental game even more during the round.  I know that if I play smarter and just take what my shot gives me, i'll still be able to put up a decent score.  This includes not going for "sucker pins", not putting myself in 3-putt situations, taking my time with chips and/or pitches, not forcing my ball to shape a way it hasn't all round, etc.
