One of my favorite golf books of all time.

I thought Ben Hogan's Five Lessons was the Bible 'round here.

You won't believe how much this book will help give you a solid basis. From these basics you can tweak your swing to your style and comfort level, but I'm similar to you and needed to find somewhere from which to start. Ask around, you'll hear a lot of people talking about Ben Hogan and how this book is practically canon for those who want to actually learn.

That there is excellent advice, I got lessons and was told my grip was jacked. Corrected it and started playing TERRIBLE, gave it time and kept with it and I'm starting to get my confidence back in my shots. Now I'm finally playing better than previously and more consistent striking. Keep at it and it will get better. Also check out this book: http://www.amazon.com/Ben-Hogans-Five-Lessons-Fundamentals/dp/0671723014 Good luck!

Also, read this book. It's been more valuable to me than anything anyone ever tried to teach me.

Agreed. It's been awhile since I've read it, but I believe this is one of the lessons in Ben Hogan's Five Lessons.

I use it every shot.

You can go to a pro, get lessons, and all that, yes. Everyone here will tell you that.

I'll try to give you some help that I wish someone had given me. People will say "keep your right arm tucked on the down swing" or variations of this.

What it boils down to is two things. Proper plane on the back swing, and proper turn of the hips on the down swing.

The problem is mostly on the backswing. If you cannot get on the right plane on the backswing, no matter what you do on the downswing, you will be outside-in. Where most people go wrong is that they assume if they swing the club back on the inside, they must likewise swing inside on the downswing. This is NOT THE CASE. It's counter-intuitive.

So, first, try taking an exaggerated backswing where you push the club back by keeping the head as far out as you can. Pretend you are pointing it at a point directly behind you.

Next, concentrate on starting your downswing with your hips, following through your shoulders, then arms and down to your hands. This should naturally keep your right arm inside, but pay attention to make sure.

I strongly suggest this book to anyone trying to get a proper swing.
