I just got back from the range and it was a weird day. I was working on what you and mvmac showed me and it was probably the worst day I've ever had when it comes to golf. I was at the end of my rope (2 buckets later) and getting ready to leave when a pro showed up and started hitting balls beside me. Easily the best ball striker I've ever seen.
Well, I decided to ask him if he minded if I asked to watch me swing and to possibly give me a tip ( I know it's not the best thing to do when people are trying to practice but he seemed very nice). He said that I had a great swing but the reason why I'm not hitting the ball well was because of my posture. My head was down way to low, therefore making me bend over too much which was creating all sorts of problems. So, he had me straighten up a bit and to tilt my head slightly so that I was looking at the ball almost with my eyes only (slight head tilt). Once I made this correction it was like night and day. Bam!! Started hitting the ball well again, with more consistency and more distance.
At first he told me that I was moving my lower body too much as well in order to get that hip/shoulder turn during my back swing. He talked about stabilizing your lower body into a "triangle" and just to put pressure on the balls of your right foot during the backswing which will help turn the shoulders first then the hips will follow. So, your advice combined with his was exactly what I needed. The foundation was there, it was some tweaking that had to be done to help my ball striking to be more consistent. Thanks again.
