Along with the others, I would advocate for taking out the dominant hand's thumb and index finger out of equation. What worked for me early one as a compromise between too much right hand and none...

Have you seen people draw a line right around the ball, like an equator? Also perfectly legal.

Find a clubmaker, or someone that can adjust clubs. It's not about the brand name you play with, but how the clubs fit your swing. I'd take a set of $300-something Snake Eyes that have been fitted...

To get the ball up, hit down on the ball. If you're trying to sweep the ball clean off the ground, you will end up with a lower ball flight. (Also, you may skull the ball a few times.)

As an alternative to a chipper, take a PW/9i, hood it, and put it near the back of your stance (inside right foot). It'll be essentially the same, with a little more back spin.

You could still sign SAO's, but you'd need a few more hurdles to jump through. Also, you wouldn't be able to qualify for the Specific Qualification Standards through the Academy.
