So, it may be a little rant-like but I want to improve as quickly as possible without going in circles so I thought I'll ask for an opinion here. Went for my first lesson - as I've started struggling with 2-5 irons for some reason, so instead of the usual 2h spent on pitching and chipping - we spent some time on going back to basics with the swing. My impact position was still pretty solid, the body works 'okish' but i wasnt happy with the contact on shots. So after a few shots the diagnosis was - I'm laying off the shaft too much. I am consciously doing it, as I've got a fade and want to avoid having a slice. So I've been told that the hands want to go where the grip is pointing. Which most of the time I'd agree with but I like to have a certain 'feel' that helps me with timing a lot and not coming into the ball steep like hell. We worked for a while on it, to set the club shaft basically parallel to the target line. The contact is a bit better, but im back to hitting slices. Anyway, took it to the course, it wasnt the worst or best. I played fairly ok. And then went for a lesson just out of curiosity with a different guy at a different place as with my current one - seems my long game has stopped progressing/been stagnant for a while. And he basically turned 180 degrees, said my shaft is too steep, that it should be pointing at about 2o'clock at the top of the swing etc... Literally the exact opposite of what I was working on. Also - after that lesson I went to the range, and could not hit the ball for about 40-45 minutes. I felt like I've wasted Â£70. But then 2 opposite opinions... Which one is right? How the hell am I supposed to find a coach to trust? I have the aspiration to get to scratch within a short period of time. So yeah... Kind of bummed.
