Pop-ups and pulls

I am a pretty low handicapper and recently my tee shots (the best
part of my game have gone awry)- what used to be a 280 yard draw
is now a high pop up /pull to the left that keeps on hooking/ or
a snap hook- what could be causing this- my partners seem to think
my swing looks the same- is their anyone with the same problem???
can someone give me some insight.

I had the same problem last year and the beginning of this spring. After
studing my swing I found I was doing a couple of things wrong. First I
wasn't staying behind the ball at impact. My head was moving way
forward. This caused my club face to be more closed at impact. Second, I
was starting my downswing with my right shoulder (I'm right handed),
which cause me to pull the ball. I now concentrate on keeping still
during the swing (swinging within a barrel so to speak) and starting the
swing with my hips and finishing up high with my swing.

The obvious things to check of course (which I'm sure you have already)
is your grip and setup. Make sure you're not taking the club back too
far inside on the takeaway. Hope this helps.
