So I have been playing weekend golf for some years. I have wanted to be a little more consistent. I have taken 3 lessons and have worked on grip/ balance/ swing. I feel my striking has been a lot better since making the changes. The first video is before my 1st lesson. The 2nd video is before my 3rd lesson. Please let me know what you think of my swing. Thanks

    First off, whoever you took lessons from did not set you up for success. The grip is important but your posture, body position, weight shift, club path and shaft plane are all very flawed.

    start with some YouTube videos on the basics:

    you need to be more vertical

    takeaway needs to be done with the rotation of the torso and hips

    hands need to be more inside and your swing needs to be more lead with the left arm instead of the right.

    I would do a lot of half shots getting the club to work more behind you on the backswing. It looks like you are trying to bring it back straight down the target line which is going to set you up for failure from the beginning. Good luck to you and hope that helps!
