Let's go over a horrendous round.

Hole 10 - Straight draw into trees. Hit a low hook 4 iron to pin high (nGIR). Slightly thinned a pitch over the green. Chipped on and two putted.
Hole 11 - Hooked a drive OB. Dropped were it went out and took a two stroke penalty (league rules). Pulled a 9 iron left and over the green. Thinned a pitch over the green. I have no idea how I hit this shot, but I was trying to hit a low chip and the ball went 90 degrees right. It wasn't a shank. Hit a low pitch that didn't reach the green. Pitched on and two putted. 
Hole 12 - Hit 6 inches behind the ball with a hybrid. Luckily it was a short hole and I advanced it to have about 120 yards left. Duffed a pitching wedge that somehow rolled over the green (course was firm, bouncy?). Hit a decent chip and two putted. 
Hole 13 - Hit a 9 iron like I wanted to slice the crap out of it. Ended up hitting it straight onto the right side of the green and it spun off the front. Two putted. 
Hole 14 - Hooked a drive OB. To save time, dropped where it went out and took two stroke penalty (league rules). Hit a very low 4 iron that bounded past the green into a lateral hazard. Dropped, and hit a good flop shot and two putted. 
Hole 15 - Hit a big toe push draw with a hybrid. Hit a gap wedge to about 2 feet and tap in for birdie. 
Hole 16 - Hit behind the ball again with a 3-wood this time. Was able to punch out towards the green. Thinned a pitch over the green. Chipped on and two putted. 
Hole 17 - Hit a halfway decent driver (not really a hole to hit a driver, but F-It at this point). Ended up behind a tree. Was able to end up back left over the green. Hit a poor pitch shot that ran off the front of the green. Two putted. 
Hole 18 - Hit a low straight hook drive into the trees. Tried to hit a hero low 4 iron (F-it again). Hit a tree and the ball went straight down. Hit another 4 iron punch shot that went about 50 yards over the green. Hit a lob shot over a tree that ended up rolling off the front (green is severe back to front). Two putted.

My lesson today part of the two day group lessons/outing in/near Erie, PA. 

To help tone down how the club moves from A3 to A4, I changed how my right elbow works in the backswing. Adding a bit of width between my arms from A1 to A3

I found it muckiest easier to shorten the swing because I can feel the right elbow position in the backswing more with it flared out more.

Secondary is continue to work on getting more extension in the left side. Just got to make sure that I continue with the weight shift forward so I am able to push the left leg up and not end up pushing myself back when I get extension in the left side.

Overall, this cleaned up contact a lot. It made the backswing more consistent and in turn the downswing more consistent.
