Commit to Change
You are having difficulty learning a new aspect of your swing.
If you or your golf instructor feels that this adjustment is good for you then commit to it. Hesitation will create swing errors and cause the ball to fly erratically.
Practice this new adjustment without watching to see where the ball goes. This is for a couple of reasons. One is because you are more likely to look up to see where it is going too early and mishit. Another is because you might be tempted to readjust your swing prematurely. You need to allow time for this new adjustment to become a habit or feel second nature to you. Simply concentrate on this new adjustment and allow it to integrate itself into your swing.
