My typical ball flight is: little draw

The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: hook

Rate my swing and give me a few tips. I've just broken my ankle. Yesterday in school sport we played volleyball and a guy jumped on my left foot and then it was broken. And now im sitting in the hospital and edited a few of my golfvideos I've captured 1 week ago.

I've got a few questions:

Do you think, that the swing is too upright?

Do you think that my backswing is too wide? So should i cock my wrists earlier?

And a problem that i found is, that I've got a little bowed left wrist at the top. It should be square, so my clubface is parallel to my left forearm. And when I've fixed that problem my shaft will be more parallel in line with my stance line.

I had a slice a month ago. Then I played with a scratch player in my age and i realized he had a much stronger grip. Everytime I read about how to fix a slice i skipped the grip session, because i thought my grip would be good. But after i captured my swing, I saw an open clubface at the top and that my swing was much too steep and over the top. I decided to play the next tournament with an open stance and the ball back in my stance and strenghened my grip. My ballflight was a slight hook. But I was able to control it and played my best round of the year. My home course has its most trouble on the right, so that isn't the biggest problem to end up on the left side. After that I went back to an square alignment and used my strong grip. Now my slice was completely gone and I played nice draws to slight hooks. But the hooks come to often. And it's fairly hard for me to play a straight shot, so that the ball isn't turning from right to left. But I can play good golf with this swing. But I would play better, if I would flaten out my downswing. It's too steep. I already tried to flaten it out but I can't find a good drill to do that. So I ask you if you could give me good drills or tips how to flaten my downswing out. When I flatened it out, I would hold off my release a bit more automatically and my ball flight would be a bit straighter and my swing directen would go a bit more to the right and so my swing would be perfect for me.

Here's my actual draw swing (mostly hook):

As you can see my takeaway is bit inside, but that's not a big problem because i fix that in the downswing. But as you can see my downswing is too steep:

See how the shaft doesn't point to the ball halfway down? That's the mistake!

Because it should look exactly like this:

Please give me a few drills or tips to fix that. Thank you!

I would focus on two things.  Hit balls with a tee under your right arms pit and keep the tee in for the entire swing.  Will help the location of the right elbow and the handle from raising at such a fast rate.  Would also hit shots keeping the right foot banked longer.

Could do this drill

I had a slice a month ago. Then I played with a scratch player in my age and i realized he had a much stronger grip.....

After that I went back to an square alignment and used my strong grip. Now my slice was completely gone and I played nice draws to slight hooks. But the hooks come to often.

One of the pros has already spoken so I guess it is sort of cheeky for me to chime in, but what the heck. From what I read you had a fade/slice, then you strengthened your grip and now you have a draw/hook that you'd like to tame. Perhaps a bit more experimentation with the grip is in order? So far as the swing plane is concerned, I can only report what seems to have been my own experience. In my case, flattening my swing tends to induce MORE draw because with a flatter swing I tend to hit more inside to out rather than coming over the top which (for me) causes a fade/slice ball flight. In any case, I do not think you can divorce your down swing from the back swing. It seems to me that if you want a flatter downswing the easy way to get there is by starting with a flatter back swing. You might try sticking a tee into the hole at the back of the grip and making sure it points down at the ball as you sweep the club back, that should help with swinging down along the same plane. (Edit for clarity: The tee in the grip just helps you to see where the shaft in pointed.) Seems to have helped me.

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.  
    • Difference in These Putters Besides Price?
      My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts! Someone beat me to it, but there are obvious differences in the appearance of those two putters. The most obvious is that the alignment marks don't align! And the mark on the instep (if that's what it's called), looks like it was hacked in with a machete or maybe a cold chisel. Never mind that it looked like it laid in a barn for 10 years! Hey, I'm a senior and retired, so I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, but I refuse to buy cheap crap just because it's cheap. I remember a radio show I heard years ago where the discussion was about value vs cost. A woman called in and said she didn't have a lot of money, so she couldn't afford to buy "cheap". The host asked her what she meant. She replied that buying cheap stuff that does not perform and wears out early is more expensive in the long run than buying top quality goods that do the job and will last! Admittedly, they weren't talking golf equipment here, but the idea is the same.
