As Erik said, identify your priority piece (which you should have already identified if you have spent hundred of pounds on lessons) and work on it until you nail that priority piece. If what he tells you doesnt work then maybe you need to find a new coach.

I think I'm a great example of priority pieces. I have numerous things that need improvement in my swing: head movement/centered pivot, weight forward, shaft lean at impact, etc etc and I notice all of them when I watch myself on video, but there's no way I can focus on keeping my head still and making a centered pivot while remembering to get my weight forward and fix my wrist conditions and maintain a forward shaft lean at impact. So what I have done is picked one piece, the head movement and centered pivot, and that will remain my priority piece until it is fixed and ingrained. If that takes 2 months, 6 months, 12 months, so be it. Only once that is done will I then move onto the next piece. Jumping from piece to piece or trying to fix too much at once will leave you spinning your tires and not getting anywhere.

I don’t mean to hijack the thread, but this was really good!

Many thanks for the detailed response, I completely agree the main issue I have currently is I'm trying to fix all of the problems I have in one go ie left knee internally rotating causing loss of height, overswing, steepening on downswing, EE, high handle and speed of swing which is basically impossible and proven with me not improving what so ever in years. The last lesson I had a few months back basically eluded to the my left knee collapsing/loss of height is the main cause for the rubbish that happens after it. The only drill given was to practice practice swings with a club in between my knees meaning I can't physically move them.... I'm not sure what other drills are out there as every other player I watch/play with rarely dip there head at all doesn't seem to be a common issue?

Typical EE swing.

look how much closer to the ball and higher the hands are at impact vs address. 

 

No face on ? :~(

And that's exactly the issue with clubface control, massive early extension and high hands mean I find it extremely difficult to control shots. When I do strike it out the middle I can literally hit a PW 150 yards dead straight or snap hook one 50 yards shift or leave it way short right.... Like I mentioned above to me it all starts on the backswing, with any top player it looks so smooth and simple mine is literally just a thwack and hope for the best...

Unfortunately I don't have a face on video at the minute I can look to record one. The one thing which bugs me the most though is why I struggle so much in bringing the club down on a shallow plane. Whatever I try I always persist on dragging the handle down and early extending

Why is golf such a hard game haha...

    • Hit the 9 wood on a 186 yard par three, hang time was incredibly long. It finally landed and only bounced about 6' forward. I was 20' to the right of the pin. Lipped out the bird, easy par. I think I like this.
    • Shot 86 on a 6000 yard par 72 yesterday. After a mixed start, I'm very happy with the last 10 holes. 3 O.B. tee-shots and a tee-shot that found a bush 3 yards right of the fairway is responsible for +8 of the score and a couple of bad approach shots on the front +3-4 more. Hit 2 of the first 6 and 6 of the last 10 greens and made no 3-putts on very slow and bumpy greens (33 putts total). Hit my short irons really well from the short stuff (hit all the greens from 150 and in from fairway/semi), but struggled a bit from thick rough and with my longer irons.  Finished the round with a nice birdie on 18, a 310 yard dogleg right par 4 playing a little uphill into the wind. Hit my drive well and it ran through the fairway a couple of yards into the left rough, and left me with 50 yards to the pin. Piched a smooth AW to 7 feet an sunk the putt.  Shot of the day came on hole 11, a short, downhill (10 yards), 275 yards par 4 with a false front (uphill the last 30 yards). Hit a perfect 4 wood directly at the flag and it landed 2 yards short of the green (268y), jumped a yard back because of very soft conditions and left me with 8 yards left to the pin. Made the up and down for a nice birdie there as well.     
    • Well how well did he hit the 2-iron?
    • I had my first shot of the AZ a few weeks ago. I felt a fever coming on about 12 hours later, and spent about a day and half feeling like the poo.  After that it was pretty smooth sailing.     Of course, now Canada is looking to be in short supply of follow up shots with that vaccine, and the Pfizer became readily available about a week later.  That's my luck, but I'm glad that i at least have one shot so far.  
    • Day 80.  Today is a bit of a cop-out, and I debated not posting it and taking the miss.  I gave blood this afternoon and hadn't practiced by that point, so I just did more wall drill rather than swinging a club after giving blood.  I'm not sure swinging a club would have been a bad idea, but I figured I need to ingrain this turn more anyway, so...
