I am having 2 major issues as of late that are taking my motivation and passion away from the game.

1. Referring to the following image - Golf Driver  I keep hitting the ball with the top left black corner of the club, and my ball sails very high into the air and goes way to the right where its usually unplayable.

2. When I use any iron on the fairway or rough, the ball NEVER lifts for more than a few seconds. It will pretty much skim across the ground and go anywhere from 20-50 yards. I can very rarely get anything besides the wedge to get any lift.

If anyone has absolutely any advice or tips it would be very appreciated.

@mvmac has the optimal idea here. But just from your post I suspect you are hitting a cold, dead shank with your irons. This means you are actually hitting the neck of the hosel dead on which will make the ball sputter ahead and not veer of alarmingly to the right (assuming you're right handed.) For now, until you make a swing thread, do the old drill of placing an object (2X4, head cover, shoe box) just on the other side of your ball at address to where if you hit the hosel your club will strike the object. Hit a few balls and focus on not hitting the object.
