Struggling to take a divot after the ball, it is usually right the ball. It feels like the club head has so much momentum it's nearly impossible to hold off. Basically I have very little shaft lean and a slight flip after impact.
What are some thoughts or ideas you have had to work on this?

Hey bro use these couple pieces of advice and you'll be good to go:
1. Thin shots can be a direct cause of you "humping it", this would be losing your spine angle on the downswing. To fix it, take something on the practice tee to rest your butt against. I literally bring a folding chair and set it up. Your butt should just touch it at address and press against it a little bit at the top of the backswing. You should not stop making contact until right about impact or just a touch after. You may experience some chunks in the early going, but start with some 3/4 wedges to get a feel.
2. Make an "impact bag". Take a small duffle or old backpack and stuff it full of towels. Have the back of the bag in the center of your stance. Take a smooth slow swing and stop at the impact position. You should generate a nice thump at impact to feel that position.
3. No joke on this one because I do it every practice session. HIT BALLS WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED. I'm not even shitting you, I picked this up about 8 years ago. Arnie Frankel actually recommended it. Anyway, after you are warmed up take an 8-iron to start and get setup like normal. Just before you swing, close your eyes and keep them closed the whole swing until just after impact. Now, this could feel really weird, but what you will realize is that you will allow your actual "swing" to happen. Under these conditions I have gotten to a point of "striping" multiple shots in a row with a 3-iron.
