Thanks all. Not knowing what to call it definitely won't keep me from using it since it has worked well for me in the past. I'm going to guess that over the last 2 or 3 times that I have played thinned or fatted pitches have cost me at least 5 strokes per round. I'm guessing it is more of a pitch and run based on what I'm seeing on these replies.
In one of the last scramble tournaments that I played it, I really struggled with shots under <100 yards using full or even 3/4 shots with wedges (Gap, Sand, and Lob). The tournament was three days. Day one and two were pretty disastrous on these shots and I really had a lot of trouble. One day three, the actual day that scores really counted, I decided to try and play smart golf and take higher percentage shots. A lot of shots involved clubbing up a club or two and...
Well the year has gone by and I haven't improved on my best round of 95 but I did end up breaking 100 more times than I remember this year. My handicap is down to 26.5 and my average score is right at 100. I'm hoping that with some substantial improvement in 2015 to lower my HC to at least under 20. I think if I can do that my average score would be around a 93 or 94 (give or take) and that would be progress. I'd like to start dipping my toes into the upper 80s at least...
I will definitely look at some of the advice suggested above. I played this weekend and made some interesting observations. I switched back to some more SGI irons instead of the J40 dual pockets that I've been playing (probably better clubs that I should be playing but damn they are good looking) and j also purchased and wore a swing glove to rule out cupping as an issue. Even though my score did not reflect it, my iron play was overall pretty good and I only had a few...
And it may not be that I have to roll over the forearms as much as I might need to "feel" that way. Right now I am holding off all they way through. I may not have to actually roll the forearms as much as just finish my swing properly.    We did take video, but not high speed. 
Well stretching is something that I can do outside of focusing on the swing. I'm naturally more comfortable with an upright two piece or two plane swing so that's not something that feels awkward. For now I am going to focus on keeping the club face more closed on the backswing and rolling over the forearms. Those will be my two main things to work on although as you know those two things have multiple elements.
I took a lesson yesterday from a local pro that I trust. I've got a lot of things going wrong, and I was a little upset to find that I am doing all the things that I suspected were an issue. Swinging out to in, and not getting the clubface back to square. Not squaring the clubface was do to me over rotating the club and opening it way up on the backswing but not coming through during the swing. Currently working on a combination of things: Swinging less around my body and...
Thanks guys. I am definitely "cupping" the wrist but have a lot of trouble when I try to bow it. Any tips for how to actually incorporate it into the swing.    And yeah, I do have my shots mapped out as long as I don't mind going up two clubs and aiming to the left of wherever I'm trying to go. 
Looking for a little help with a problem that I have developed over the last month or so. All my iron shots and most of my driver shots are going very high, right, and several clubs short. I am occasionally able to hit the ball straight or with a slight draw with my driver, but this is becoming less and less possible lately. Sorry I don't have any video I can upload at this time. I've hit the range several times and tried to shorten my backswing and follow through and...
