I found a couple drills on YouTube that I think I am going to try.  Hopefully be able to get to the range tomorrow.   I know that not lifting my head would be the easy solution...thanks haha.
I've been working on this exact thing, problem is that when I do, I lift my head and top the ball haha.  Guess it is just a mix of getting the club around after impact while keeping that head still. I don't think my alignment or set up is the problem.  I play the ball off the inside of my front heel, forward in my stance.  Thanks though!
So I've hit that dreaded 110-115 mark that is so hard for most players to overcome and break 100.  I am on month 3 of golfing now.  I consistently shoot horrible front 9s (around 59-65) and "decent" back 9s (yesterday was a 44).     One of my biggest issues is I am pushing my shots right.  Particularly with my driver off the tee and my long hybrids every once in a while.  I have had a couple lessons and my instructor said that my lower body is not rotating enough at...
 There are about 6 local courses here that all have PGA teachers.  All of my friends are mainly self taught and all shoot in the mid 80s.  My two friends that have had lessons all went to Golftec.  Ironically enough, they shoot higher than my self taught friends...go figure.   This is exactly what I am afraid of moving forward with teaching myself.  I fear I will make some big mistakes that will really slow down my progress moving forward.
Hey Everyone!   So as some of you know, I am  newbie golfer.  I am 26, so I kind of got into the game late but am happy with how fast my game has progressed.  Two months ago I was shooting honest 170s and now I am in the honest low 120s.  My goal for my first year is to break 100.   I feel really good with my iron play and putting, but my chipping and getting off the tee is horrendous.  I have a straight right push that is just ridiculous when teed up.  I can get...
Thanks for the replies guys!   Well it looks like the hybrid is something I will be buying soon.   Now I just have to decide between the 4 or 3!  I am leaning more towards the 3 I believe. 
My longest iron is currently my 5.  I don't hit my 3 iron "bad," I just really slow down my swing for some reason...so I don't hit it much further than my 5 iron. I play my wedges near my rear foot and my long irons towards the front.  I have tried playing my 3 wood in the same spot as my long irons, and it is usually catastrophic haha.  I have had the best luck when I hit it near the front and sweep the ground.  When I connect just right, it does go forever.  But I am no...
 I had two swing lesson sessions with a PGA accredited teacher, but no I am not currently taking lessons.  Just playing golf and enjoying the game.  I don't worry too much about the score, I just use it as a gauge in which to see how well my game is developing.  With that being said, one of my goals is to break 100 by summer's end.     This is exactly the kind of gap and distance I am trying to fill!  I don't plan on getting rid of my 3 wood.  I still use it off the tee on...
So I have been golfing for a little over 2 months now.  When I first started out, I was atrocious.  I shot in the 170s and couldn't make it in the fairway to save my life.  Recently I just shot my best game at 125.  I am finally starting to hit the ball off a tee with a little confidence, all be it I have a pretty horrible tendency to push straight right...I still haven't had a club fitting for shaft flex or anything, but being this new I don't think that I need to worry...
Thanks for the link! Since I have that natural C-shape in my upper back from the injury, I pretty much look exactly like that posture wise haha.  I physically can't straighten the tip top section from the top of my shoulder blades to my neck...so if that thread is correct, I have good posture.  I guess when I said "99%" straight, I was referring to the section from the lower center of my shoulder blades to the base of my rear. I would like to mention I have absolutely no...
