Don't take much stock in what your divots are doing. Where they occur matter more than what they look like, making sure they happen after the ball.  Also, what iron are you using in that set up?  I would say you have the ball too far back and standing too close, if that is were your feet are at when you set up to the ball.

I don't usually pay them any mind, but the divot being so far right of where I had it teed up concerned me. No, I don't usually stand that close. That's just me standing over it to take the photo. It happens pretty much every time I hit an iron off the tee.

Is it causing you trouble with your shot? I would be concerned about shanks with that much difference. I would say just move the ball slighly more forward and slightly more away from you.

Any video of the swing?

No, unfortunately. My tripod is MIA so I haven't been able to take any video while on the range.

I found my tripod! It was in the garage buried under a mountain of old tax forms, which explains why it took me so long to find it.

I was only able to take a little bit of video before my camera died. I wasn't able to take a better face on view, but for my purposes (working on keeping my head still) it worked well.

I stupid monkey'd for about an hour before my back made me call it quits.

I've got the shanks, and it's awful.

I've been through this twice before, and it's awful.

I've narrowed it down to two possible causes:

Too close to the ball OR swinging too much out. I don't know which.

Holy shit this is bad. No wonder I haven't been able to shoot well lately; I'm swinging like a thirty handicapper, and thats generous.

Club works too shallow on the backswing then you have to steepen it coming down. So I would recommend you hinge the club/wrists up sooner on the takeaway. A lot of this is explained in the first page of this thread.

First thing to do this is make sure the grip isn't palmy, the way your left wrist bows is a "clue" that you may need to get the heel pad more on top.

Frank and I worked on standing the club up so that it isn't so shallow going back.

I have a very palmy, very weak grip. It's something I've been reluctant to change but it's probably better to do so.

Changing the grip will certainly help with getting the club "up" sooner.

Took your advice @mvmac ; changed my grip. Helped alot.

I did this for a good while today. This is just an example.

Hit some balls, too, and the ball flight was better and more consistent.

Looks great, just keep rehearsing it and the "real swing" will start to look more and more like the practice swing.

A rehearsal practice swing before I hit my tee shot. I did this four or five times before I hit my ball, on almost every shot. This particular hole (I'm actually about fifteen yards away from the teebox, trying not to distract anyone while my father records the video) I hit a high chunk that landed in a bunker. Not great.

Shot 73 today, with a 3 under front and a 5 over back. Best I've ever shot, best I've ever hit the ball. It was really incredible.

Never a better reason to go back then shooting your lowest round ever.

Nice work!

Thanks man. First time I've broken 80 in two years, so it was a bit of a shock, lol.

    • I would like to understand this rule. Rule 19.2(a) says that player is entitled to stroke and distance, even if original ball not found and identified. But relief under 19.2(b) an (c) says that ball must be identified to obtain reference point. I thought that’s why Faldo had to take stroke and distance in the 1992 US Open; everyone knew ball was in an identified tree but he could not identify the original ball. So in Reed’s case, how is that he did not have to “positively identify” his ball?  
    • Right now I don't bag a 3 wood. I'd happily add a G430 3 wood because I am pretty sure I could reliably launch it.
