    Stick with it Homer, and stick with Paul Foston.

    I know a few people in my area that have worked him and have nothing but very positive things to say about him. A friend I have made by frequenting the driving range knows him very well from his time coaching Paul Way, he's got a track record of success.

    I think you and I have some things in common when it comes to coaching, although you may tell me differently, I don't always fully trust what I'm being told by a coach is the right way to go. I might start off doing what they say, but before too long, I go back to what feels right and what I can make work because I don't see the results that I want from what I'm being taught. If you find a coach that you really believe and trust, stick with them, worth their weight in gold. Even if they're expensive and / or far away!

    Good luck.

    How about a plan Homer. I live 20 minutes from Paul Fostons studio, so, you pay for some lessons and I'll pop along for you and do the lessons, and then I can give you a rundown on what you're supposed to be doing either on here or by phone - it'll save all that driving on the M25/26/20!

    This young lad here has a pretty good back swing. He doesn't keep the face looking at the ball going back for too long. His swing isn't too long and the right elbow folds well and points down somewhat. Its not an outside takeaway and no big massive over swing.
