Response to Short game ;)
I appreciate the response.
My biggest issue lately is that my trail side is too active. I struggle with low left hooks. There are times when playing 18 where I recognize the problem but can't stop the trail side from dominating the swing. In order to overcome this issue, I have been focusing on keeping my trail hand, arm, and shoulder completely out of the swing.
I am interested about what you have said about the butt of the club pointing at the ball on the downswing. Is this a standard rule for the S&T to keep the angle or did the S&T pro have you do this due to your type of swing? I would think that would cause a very deep, sharp swing, with a very in-to-out type path. I would love to try it but I have to make sure I don't focus on anything with my trail hand. He is there just for the ride.
The short game...
My putting has gone into the crapper. I have been averaging 6-7 3 putts a round. That is way too many 3 putts. I decided to bear all the ugly glares and I went ahead and purchased a belly putter on Ebay. I didn't want to pay 150-200 dollars for the experiment so I went with a knock off type. The putter seems to be put together well. I live in the west and it is snowing again so I haven't had a chance to use it.
I hope you get a chance to respond about the butt of the club pointing at the ball question.
Thanks again for your help.
