It's unlikely that Key #4 is your priority Key given your handicap. The reason for working on Keys #1, #2, and #3 first is that changes to those can affect Keys #4 and #5 so if you get Key #4 down and then have to work on #1-3 you'll often have to re-do #4 again.
Record your swing and start a My Swing thread. Best advice I can give you.
I am just waiting for my iphone case to come in the mail (the one that attaches to alignment rod). As soon as I have that, I will be recording and posting my swing ASAP. I meant to order it last week but got sidetracked.
Gotcha, understood about the Keys. When I post my swing hopefully you can give some input. I will probably use the same recorded swings to join Evolvr and see where that takes me. I am at the point where I have spent so much money on lessons that another $50-$150 wont kill me. Just tired of spending $ and not seeing results when I am confident im capable of at least playing "respectable" golf.

What I would do is, get a mirror or video camera and just work on developing your own feel. Once you get one, work on it slowly and methodically till it becomes habit.
As for practice, I will take an long sleeve shirt and wrap it around my back, putting the sleeves under my arms and make swings that way. This is more of helping me get my rotation better because I really focus on not dragging my hands back and in to create artificial depth. What might help is, keep that V formed with your arms and hands, and just rotate your body, just to get the feel of not getting your hands stuck behind you to fast.
Appreciate the input. I like the sound of that long sleeve shirt drill!

Don't worry about anything else until you have your priority piece resolved.
Lol great point. I swear I am not as nutty as I might seem given the variation in my posts lol!...It's just im just stuck in a frustrating place and seeking help from anyone who is willing to help ;) Regardless, I really think my #1 priority needs to first be developing more consistency with my irons (all irons), then curing the driver / wood slice, then pitching and chipping, then putting. I really think I would gain a lot of confidence in my game if I cut down the amount of total mishits with an iron in my hand, per round. Thanks for writing.
