I used to hit a lot of shots on the toe, I did the same drill only addressing the close ball and hitting the one further away.
I also like the drill of setting the iron down and sticking a tee in the ground in front and in back of the iron and hitting balls in between. It makes a good visual and you get instant feedback.
Hope one of these helps you out.

You might have to change your username once they come back. Also, I have been trying to remember to keep my butt sticking out during the downswing, helps me avoid flirting with any goats. Have you checked your swing for early extension?

Terrible advice if you ask me.
That kind of advice would make sense if it went in the other direction. If you felt the clubs were too flat for you and you were a slicer that came over the top every time, but were taking lessons to get rid of the slice, your swing coach might recommend flatter lies because they would fit the swing you were aiming for as opposed to the swing you presently had. Plenty of golfers need flatter lies as they swing improve and they are able to sustain their hand path and their swing plane better through impact.
But I have never heard of any golfer who needs to move towards steeper lie angles because his swing has been improved!
