I have totally rebuilt my swing since signing up to your course and have made great progress but I seem to have gone a few steps backward
The problem I am having is as I come down with my downswing my hands are to far away from my groin area and as a result although building up a lot of club head speed it is leading to shanking and missed hit shots so I think I am coming over the top.
Do you have any drills/videos you can recommend to cure my existing procurement
Look forward to hearing from you

I have a serious problem bring the practice tee to the course.
Yesterday was a classic example of what I am seeing.
Prior to my scheduled tee time I took several shots on the practice tee to see which club was going which distance. Needless to say I couldn’t miss on the range. My pitching wedge was exact at 200 yds. My five iron was right on at 150 yds. Drives were straight and on target at 250 with my Driver, (8.5) and 220 with my 3 wood, (13.5). All shots were off a grass tee. On the course, however, I fell apart as is my norm. Some times rushing the downswing, sometime “all arms” Some of my problems come from poor club selection in deep rough. At other times I play a hole in perfect sync, but once again it doesn’t carry over.
I am well aware that all or most of my problems are in my head, but can’t seem to break this curse. I read and reread Bob Rotella fully understanding his message, but to no avail.
Shooting a 125 and carrying a 25 handicap when I know I am fully capable of hitting in the low 90’s is really doing a number on my confidence.
Need some help Coach,

You need to swing way slower 50% and just do the new swing on the course. If you never change anything you will continue to do what you are used to doing. So, you go out by yourself late a night (no pressure). You have 3 balls in your pocket. Don’t keep score. If you hit a bad shot throw down another one and try again. Hit the shot hold the positions and check them. It is different and you are not good at it. So, you stick to 50% until you can do it on the course. I have a bunch of tips on this here:
