Bunker, thanks for the commnts.
1.) Grip is good. No issue there - was addressed earlier (see previous pages of this thread).
2.) The club is still closed (slightly) at P4 and the way down (P5/6/7).
a.) I think it has more to do with the placement of my right elbow at P4, and the spacing of the left and right elbows.
b.) When I tighten that spacing up - the club is on plane and square at P4 (see rehersal vs full swing)
3.) I'm not trying to monitor the face of the club - other than feel PP#1 (cup of right hand over left thumb), PP#3 (right trigger finger) and PP#4 (left armpit).
a.) If I'm successful in keeping pressure at these points - the clubface is able to come through square a very high percentage of the time
Another thing I noticed is that my right elbow at P5 is a little further off to the side than I'd like... And this could be causing me to get 'bunched' on the inside - and forces me to lift my left shoulder early? This is something Mike and Grant touched on in the past. I see it here in the swing sequence. Looks a little off.
My goal over the next few days is to watch some videos on P5 to P8 and focus on:
1.) Hip slide... P5 to P8.
2.) Shoulder turn in sequence with the arms.... P5 to P8.
3.) Right elbow from P5 to P8.
If I can identify the correct swing sequence in these areas - and incorporate some of the feels - I think I can make another break through with my swing.
I'm off to the range!
