swayingAre you swaying?  If so, you are probably seeing a wide variety of poor golf shots.  A sway happens when you shift your weight to your back foot and your hips shift in the same direction instead of turning so your back is to the target.  A good way to check if you are swaying is to stick an alignment rod next to your back foot so that it is vertical.  Make a normal golf swing.  If your hip hits the stick than you are swaying instead of turning during your golf swing.  A good drill to help you fix a sway is to go to the driving range and place a golf ball under the right side of your back foot.  Practice hitting shots with and you will find you will feel what it is like to turn instead of sway.
