Thanks, I think I'm going to give the online swing analysis a chance first and see what the results are after a few weeks. If I'm not making the progress I want to I will bite the bullet and get a real lesson.
Thanks I am certainly going to look into the 9 to 3 drill you have both mentioned and will give it a go.   As per the suggestion to get a lesson. Have you ever used an online instructor? I've found a couple of (what look like) good sites where you can submit your swing videos to a pro who will return a video analysis of your swing etc. I've always been a bit hesitant when it comes to getting a 'real' lesson. I know it sounds stupid but I feel awkward as a grown man...
Thank you for your advice and encouragement, it is very much appreciated.   It is starting to feel slightly (very slightly!) easier as I use it more and I am using this as an opportunity to really think about my swing and 'relearn' it the correct way. I've never really thought about it too much before and ended up with the super strong grip and (as you mentioned) have developed a number of compensatory 'faults' to be able to make contact.   Hopefully it will pay...

(3 + 4 are hybrids and I very rarely use them)   5 - 175 (I use this club a lot!) 6 - 160 7 - 145 8 - 130 9 - 120 PW 45'- 110 GW 52'- 100 SW 56' - 90 LW 60'...
Hi all,   I have been an occasional weekend player for the last couple of years and have always managed to play to a reasonable enough standard (for me) to at least enjoy the game. Over the last 3 months or so I have really begun taking the game more seriously and have cranked up my practice and playing time. I seem to have reached a plateau and if anything am getting worse. I have developed a tendency to hook (sometimes wildly!)   I am 99% certain my lack of...
