I've made a few swing changes over the past year to make my swing more up and down, instead of too shallow and around the body. I can immediately tell when I get lazy and drop my right arm to the inside at the last third of my backswing, resulting in an over the top hook. I've nearly eliminated that problem (mostly by repetition and being aware that taking the club back inside never results in good things for me). My "problem" now is that I nearly always hit a slight push to the right - between 5 and 10 yards right. I set up on the left side of the tee boxes. I havent yet encountered a scenario in which its hurt me. About 50% of the time it draws back a few yards, but the rest of the time its dead straight, and a max of 10 yards off to the right. Is this something to worry about, or is this just "my natural ball flight" and just continue to play the left side of the tee boxes on narrow holes?

Take note that the set-up alignments don't change from shot to shot.  If the handle gets too far back that gets the clubhead to swing across the ball and result in a cut/slice.

Could this be as simple as you setting up with the club face a bit open?

My old irons always looked more open then they actually were so I ended up setting up with them closed and thinking they were square. To me, square looked way open. I still need to remind myself that my hybrids look open when they are square. Maybe you have the opposite visual trick being played on you and what you think is a square club face is really a tiny bit open.

BTW, my issue went away when I got my Mizunos. When they look square to me, they are square. Not sure why. Perhaps your issue will magically go away when you get your new irons.

Winter is here, so you might buy a launch monitor session and get some data on your shots.

You're a 5 HDCP, and appear to have a consistent shot pattern. So, some launch data and the eye of a teaching pro could help you diagnose what's happening.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
