New member and new to golf! Been playing roughly 3 months, with lessons and practice I get to the range 2-3 times a week and have only played 3 times on an executive Par 3 course (which I am told is a diffcult one as its so unforgiving!)....I have been videoing my swings and as you can imagine I have a multitude of problems.
My main one, and one which I am trying to work on is that as soon as I start my backswing I raise up from my hips. Now, sometimes I get back into posture at impact and hit the ball ok (not much distance but thats the next thing to work on!) but that tends to be on the mats at the range, when I hit from the grass at the range it I tend to top it a lot more (this is also true on the course).....The thing is I have noticed that when I practice swing I do not raise up at all, which leads me to think it could be a mental block I have when actually hitting the ball? Is this possible, if so is there any drills\swing thoughts I should incorporate? My Pro showed me the shoulder plane drill (club over the shoulder, point left shoulder at right foot etc) but to be honest I have only started doing this religiously for 3 days (everyday 50 reps) to try and ingrain some muscle memory.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I will try and upload a video but its from an app an proving difficult to extract.
PS - ignore my HP at 28, I havent one but was told this was the highest you could have! In reality I am much much higher!
