Ok so here's what is going on.  On the downswing the right knee is kicking in towards the ball too much.  This causes the head to move away from the ball and the hips to move towards the ball too much.  Some movement with those two are fine but you're over doing it causing the toe hits.  Notice the red line

Compared to Zach Johnson, looks like you guys have a similar build.  Note the right knee and right heel.

Here's how you start to improve.

Allow the chin to "hang" down.  Notice how there isn't any space between the chin and chest in the right pic.  The eyes being more down will help the arms, notice how the hands are into your body too much.  Should be hanging slightly away from you.  Also think the chin being more tucked, eyes down will help a backswing piece, basically increase the depth and angle that the hips turn on.

Also spend some time doing these drills. They are going to feel horrible and ridiculous but stick with it and try to change the footwork as much as you can because it will get rid of those toe hooks.  If it starts to feel normal, you aren't doing it enough ;-)

I would say,

Stand a tad more upright. Loose the curve in your back, it inhibits proper hip turn. Since your hitting a 7 iron, your standing a bit too close. Your hands should be under your shoulders more. Standing a bit more upright with a non arch back will help a bit.

How'd it go?  Any difference?

Big difference. At first it was very uncomfortable but that actually went away fairly quickly. Still hitting the ball toward the toe but the biggest difference was went from toe hooking to hitting a fade. Still trying to work on keeping my right foot down. Those drills helped a lot today. Will continue to work on my posture and ill read that article looks interesting. Also I'm trying to focus on my takeaway i feel like I'm coming out with my hands and underneath plane.. One thing at a time though!

Good stuff.  Yeah you're just sticking your butt out too much, feel like your tailbone is "under" you at address, like you lower back is "softer".

    • 14- way Carry Bags?
      I had an ogio 14 way carry bag and hated it after one frustrating round I gave it away. 
    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.
