Let me preface this by saying that I believe the biggest thing killing my golf game is that I am constantly attempting to make changes and end up destroying my swing. My "natural" swing (for better or worse) has always been a little more vertical with my head being almost above the ball on shorter clubs.However, in the process of trying to create a proper swing and using my body with dead arms I have been attempting to flatten out the plane a bit. It is not working. I am seriously getting worse at golf (7 out of 10 balls on the range with my most comfortable club were ridiculously flubbed today with an embarrassing loss of distance and poor flight path). My question is: if a more upright swing is what I have always felt more comfortable doing and I get ok results should I just stick with it and try to groove it into an excellent swing or should I avoid it being so steep and suffer the bad shots until I can get professional help. I'm only 5' 10" btw.
I just want some opinions on this because the quest for a "perfect swing" is killing my timing, my results (slice on one shot, pull hook on the next), and overall, my enjoyment of the game. Ultimate question being-- Can I become a good golfer with a pretty upright swing?
Thanks for your input,
P.S. As far as lessons or getting my swing looked at by a pro; I simply can't afford them right now. I am technically an intern that gets housing and food but no paycheck.
