I finally bit the bullet and sought the help of a PGA teaching pro, and while the first 3 lessons completely destroyed my game (he changed everything for my grip to set up and swing) it looks like during lesson #4 things started to click and all come together.
Here in lies my question. When practicing my new swing I start out by doing 1/2 swings (9 o'clock position) then 3/4 (around 10-11 o'clock) then full swings (11-1 o'clock). I have found that with the 3/4 swing I hit beautiful, straight shots about 80-90 percent of the time. Weird thing is with the 3/4 swings the ball seems to travel just about as far as the full swing.
How much more distance should I be getting from a full swing versus a 3/4?
