Greetings and happy new year. I've taken a month off from golf (beer and wine sales spike tremendously during the holidays).

My big swing fault currently is getting sloppy at the end of my backswing, and my arms continuing to swing after my shoulders stop turning. Its not a huge amount of a swing continuance, and likely also includes a little left elbow folding, but its definitly enough to make me rely on timing, more than just turning, which obviously is never a good thing to rely on when you dont play everyday.

Im currently hitting only 3/4 shots until I groove the feel again, but would like some tips/drills to help me along. If I think about it, and remember to keep the club head low, and the right arm straight as long as it feels natural, (i swing right handed), it tends to keep me from getting lazy and sloppy. However, this is a lot to remember in the heat of the moment, and the fault tends to rear its ugly head at the worst moment. After I make the mistake, I know exactly why, and I'm typically good for another 4 - 6 holes, then I tend to get complacent again. I'd like to avoid this in the first place, obviously. Aside from continuing to work on it, Any suggestions or drills?

Also sounds like you need more extensor action(Golfing Machine term) on the back swing, which is feeling the right arm extended to maintain the swing radius on the backswing.  Here are a couple videos.  Here I am working on extensor action through feeling like I'm pushing my right hand into my left

    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut.
