About 9 months ago I took some golf lessons at GolfTec located in one of the local Golfsmith stores. Some things they found that I should note:
1. I would lift my head (and upper torso) up to get my left shoulder undeneath my chin on my backswing
2. My right elbow would be well below my left shoulder plane (from a front view, you could see my right elbow clearly below my left shoulder)
3. I took the club too far inside and due to other bad dynamics of my swing, routed the club back out in front of me (and across) on the downswing
4. I was "humping the shaft" on my downswing
I corrected #1, #3, and #4, although when I get tired, I start doing #4 a lot more. I am starting to feel how to get the club to swing "more inside to out", and I'm hooking the ball fairly consistently.
However, the one thing I notice, even when I look in a mirror while I take a back swing, is that I cannot get my right elbow "above" my left shoulder plane. My swing is no where near perfect yet and I tend to either block the club, causing the ball to go high right, or I over hook the ball. I "think" it's tied to my right arm dropping too far down through my back and down swing.
Regardless of the causes and effects, is there something I should be focusing on to get my right elbow "Above" my left shoulder plane? I tried bending over a little more, but that doesn't work.
