Welcome to TST Jossypit. Maybe if you gave us a little more detail of your game.. index. Avg distance from the tee, your major weekness, your trainning plan, and everything related to your current game? do you have statistics? Stroke gained? Did you learn proper strategy? etc etc.
With more info we can give u better feedback.

Hey bud thanks for the welcome. I’m left handed and i hit the ball around 280-300 off the tee.my bad round is low 80’s my bad shot with my irons are a little tug,and my putter runs hot and cold,like to think I chip/pitch well and get up and down more often then not,and a bad habit which I don’t do anymore was my grip  which was bottom hand strong and since I’ve sorted my grip I’ve been going low 70’s.i shot 71 level par Sunday on our championship course (east) then played today on our west course and got to 18th par 3 and I was -1 par and 3putted ended level par just something has clicked which I think is my grip  and has played a huge part in my game.two rounds in a row now level par I’m soo stoked

Ok. I’m left handed too....so I’d really like to see your swing. Your game is solid based on your scores so as others have mentioned it would be very helpful and interesting to see a breakdown of your stats. Do you use any apps to track your rounds? Do you have any swing thoughts or do you just grip it and rip it?

Follow the directions to post it to Youtube, and then link the video to this site.  Make sure not to mark it "private".  Lots of us are curious

Scores are not everything. Maybe you are just having a good streak. Sometimes i shoot 4..5 really good scores and after that i go back an shoot my usual scores. You need to know why you are shooting lower than before and that knoledge only came from statistics. 
The other day i shoot under par but after looking at the stats it was just a hot putting day. Tee to green was exactly the same and i don´t practice putting at all, just got lucky.

If you started 16 months ago and are already shooting par now, I don't think there's anyone who can advise you as to your game development.  Keep doing what you're doing. Take life advice, but be very careful about taking golf advice if what you stated above is really true.

I'm going to assume it's true, so I'll just say compete against the best fields you possibly can as often as you can.

Cheers pal thanks for the kind words. that has been my theory once I started playing was to figure it out myself,which has got to 5 so far,but what do u mean being careful about taking golf advice ? Cheers

Your swing is much better than mine. You’ve managed to develop some good mechanics despite no instruction so you have some solid natural ability. If you seriously want to continue to improve I would suggest you start a swing thread (these vids can be moved) where some highly qualified instructors can guide you. I think @3jacker is cautioning you in regards to there being a lot of poor advice lurking out there. Evolvr is a very reasonably priced online instruction program you can get through this website and you can be sure you have a current and knowledgeable instructor. The swing thread is free but you don’t get personalized experience and the times between assessments can vary. You’ll get one on one instruction with Evolvr. The great thing about this place is the true dedication to golf and learning the game. The owner, @iacas and the moderators and the instructors will not let you get sidetracked. If someone posts advice to you that sucks it will be addressed so you won’t be wondering what the hell is the right advice. You’ve got one hell of a start I’d say and you certainly have potential to get even better. I do think you’re at a point where getting some good honest feedback would benefit you greatly. You won’t be told to rebuild your swing (asinine imo). They’ll take what you have, where you are and start with one set piece at a time. Hope this helps some. Cheers and good luck!

Vinsk summed it up nicely. 

99% of golfers are worse at the game than you.  Even though you basically just started. Remember that. 

What they relate to you is based on their experience, which is far different from yours.  It's not relevant and at best a waste of your time, at worst detrimental to your game.

Wow this is killing me. I can't see the videos. I see an image, but as soon as I click play the image goes black and then I hear the club strike ball. I am missing out on history here.

After thinking about this topics title, I am pretty sure my game has been as far as I could take it, and is now on it's way back.

I thought when I hit 60 that would be it but have pleasantly surprised myself by smashing my best ever by 12 shots twice in the past three weeks . Don't ask me ,Im hitting straight long drives ,chipping  like never before and if I could only putt Ive told my pals Im turning pro !

 

Well not quite but Im enjoying it while it lasts

OK, I can see them now. I was having some computer issues yesterday I guess. Nice swing! Oh, and sounds like you may have insulted me 😊 I learned a new term.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
