Wondering if how much my right arm is folded at adress could be a problem? I have not seen many swings with this much trailing arm bend at address...

Interesting.  Kind of the opposite of my look.  @mvmac suggested I try to make my right arm a bit more like yours.

Ditto here, except the other arm.

 

Relaxing it helped me.

I am splitting hairs but am just trying to figure out if it is a bit too much.

I go through a rough patch of playing usually a few weeks into playing each spring.  This is one of the worst I can remember.  It was ugly out there this morning.  Everything is either thin or a straight push, so frustrating.

When you're having trouble pushing the ball, what are some feels you work on?

Despondency
Embarrassment
Helplessness

Frustration

Anxiety

Hopelessness

Abdominal pain

Dry Heave

;-)

 

Actually I will take the pushes any day over the hooks.  You don't want to know my list for feels with the hooks.

I check the grip.  Made a change today at the range that seemed to help a bit in the irons.  Strengthened the right hand again slightly.  The problem is doing that for me tends to lead to hooks in the fairway wood and driver, but it does really help the irons.  I literally can't get a ball off the ground hardly with a fairway wood at the moment unless I try and slice it.  Other than that, I make sure the hips are turning quickly enough in the down swing, "feel" the hands ahead of the club head to A9, I also check the left wrist at A4 and where the head is moving.  It is a constant search for the right setup to produce the best results for all the clubs.

Completely empathize with you, I'm feeling almost as frustrated with my driver at the moment. Good luck!

We are trying to fix the exit:

 

Drilled it around the course the morning a bit and hit my intended start lines much better with the irons:

 

 

Almost had my first eagle of the year.  Went for it in two..:-D  I was only 200 out.  Missed the putt off the right edge, it was a tricky little double breaker.  Easy birdie.

Of course you should. From 200 yards out the green would have to be entirely surrounded by water or other sorts of severe peril to make anything else the better play.

Yeah it is actually a pretty easy shot.  I landed out to the right(from the view of the picture) just short where the green meets the fairway, I knew that the green will funnel the ball back to the hole and it curled around to that position.

Played well this morning for the most part.  Two birdies and two bogies.  Not a long nine but still pretty solid.  Hit the ball well off the tee except for the last two par four holes.  Hit a snap hook on the longest par four that cost me a stroke and hit a thin pull on the last that I had to hack out back into the fairway.  Other than that it was pretty solid and the irons are on right now.  Especially my wedge game.   I am bit surprised at how fast the changes we started working on are helping me.  Hopefully hell week is over, you never know though.

Thanks.  It is good to finally post what I think I should have been doing weeks ago.  However to be honest, all I can think about is the frustration of the two bad tee shots on 16 and 18.
