Hi! I'm really new at golf, about 10 weeks into it. I took a 7 week golf course going once a week, and now, I am hitting the ball consistently. The problem is, every club I pull, I hit about 175 yards. That's driver, 4 hybrid, and 7 iron. I did some research, and it seems to be something called casting. Do you think this is the case, and how should I go about fixing this?

Keep your left arm straight, and your right elbow tucked into your right side. That, along with keeping the elbows as close together as possible, will allow your hip turn to power your swing. It should also keep you from releasing the wrists early and coming over the top. Don't try and hit up on the ball either, if anything hit down on it with irons. If you can learn to hit a very low shot, it can help break the tendency to hit up.

Do you take a divot consistently?

It depends on how I feel, which determines if I divot consistently. If I'm playing angry golf at the range (quickly hitting the ball one after the other out of frustration), I'm pretty consistent. It's when I slow down to think that I lose any consistency at all. I will try to pay attention to my elbows to see if it will help.
