I have been working on not swaying for about a month now. Its been a struggle. I have found that if I'm not thinking about it then I hit a lot better shots.    I had lost some distance with my driver. I moved the ball up more in my stance and I am hitting the ball much more out of the center of the club. Which in turn raised my ball speed up from 145 to 160 consistently. I will take that. 
I felt amazing today at the course by the house. I hit my 60 degree wedge, 9 iron, and 7 iron. I really focused on keeping my weight forward to keep me from swaying. I would take a slow practice swing really focusing on my right knee not moving. Then hit my shot. I hope the video I shoot tomorrow shows what I'm feeling. Go away sway. 
I didn't want to hijack the brices thread about his swing. I read over the thread about being a stupid monkey. Just so that I understand correctly. What you were getting at by saying "thats not being a stupid monkey" is I need to focus on the highest priority problem? 
I am finding a lot of similarities between our swings. You do a great job with your knee action. I'm pretty envious. I saw a couple things that you do with your right knee that I'm going to try myself. 
Thats exactly what I'm trying.I like to use an alignment stick or my golf bag.  I felt like I wasn't swaying as much yesterday. I'm gonna need to video my swing today and see if i can replicate the swing without thinking about it. 
Oh yeah of course. Finding it tough to get a good feeling for not swaying right now.  I feel like I'm straightening my right leg to much and leaning more on my left side than I should. Gonna need to be find a better balance between my old swing and the fix.    I'm gonna get out of the house today and hit balls for a bit. Hopefully it clicks. 
My next question would be about getting my hands more forward. Obviously when I do this the club face is open. I rotate the club face back to square. I have a feeling that this is closing it more than it should be. Could you post a pic of how the club head should look at address in regards to the ball? 
I agree. I try to get in about a half hour of swings after work everyday. I am lucky that I like next to a golf course that has a large area where people hit balls. I stick to hitting 5 irons and down. So I'm not paying for range balls everyday. When I started doing this I improved my accuracy so much this year. Prior to my boy being born and waiting for him to be born I was shooting in the 70's on a regular basis.    I would love to see coaching on the course more....
I know that with my personal swing I hit my drives consistently 240 yards. There are some days depending on contact, firmness of the fairway, and wind I will get some extra yardage. I always know that I can count on hitting the ball at least 240.    I also find that I hit the ball farther off the tee on my first few holes. I'm not as warmed up and my swing is shorter.  
 I think this is the best example of what I was trying to get across with this thread. So of the things that we all learn about the golf swing. Some things may not be what fits for our personal swings. Everyones is different.
