Actually, I'd seen my club head getting under plane at A2 and I've been working a lot to fix that, doing lots of pre-shot stuff swinging back just to A2 trying to have the club parallel to the target line there. But to accomplish that I've just been yanking my right elbow back even further, getting me even more stuck behind and across the line at the top even when I don't get as under plane at A2 as I am in the vids.
Yeah there are a few ways to get the club more "up" by A2, "lawn mowing" the right elbow can change the pic to a certain extent but I don't recommend it.
One other question. I tend to break my wrists late, so my currently natural point for A2 is with the hands higher than Erik's or most other good golfers. I've always told myself, hey, Stricker does it, that's not causing my issues. Will it help me shift to consistently do as suggested in the video (turn at a faster rate and keep my elbows closer together so I don't draw the right elbow back too far and get stuck behind) to also work on breaking my wrists a bit earlier and getting to A2 with my hands lower?
I did notice what was going on with A2 but I don't want to get into too many details now.
I do think working on the stuff I suggested will help though.
When you take the next video, make sure to take slow, 50% speed swings with something in that right arm pit. I'm not concerned with what the ball does with these initial swings, more about seeing how implementing these pieces changes the picture.
