A little update, I noticed that my left arm on the sideview shots are bent when it got to A4. How much of a big deal is it if the left arm is bent? What should I do to fix the bent arm when I get to A4. Also, I do feel like I should shorten my backswing more.
May I make a suggestion? Learn how to hit those. Figure out for your wedges what your half swing gets distance wise; there's a good chance that after a little bit of practice, you'll get the ball closer from 30-40 yards than you do from 75 yards.
