I just felt what you were talking about and took a look at it in the mirror. Much different. Might explain why I occasionally experience back pain even though I am young.

Not sure what you mean with the knees, here's a pic to help. The posture will certainly help with the pivot pieces for keeping the head steady.
I worked on my posture today and it feels much more solid and balanced. But I am still fighting a downward movement with the head. I also took a FO to see if anyone saw anything that could be causing this. Thanks.
Looking good, yeah the posture isn't going to "fix" it, but will make this next piece easier.
Going to feel like you "stretch" your right side to keep the head from lowering and drifting to the right. This will help your centers stay centered, keep the head steady. So instead of the head being over the right foot, it's going to stay more in the middle of the feet and adding the stretch feel will do that.
So I see three things to work on.
- Posture- stand a little taller but "hunch" the upper back to get the eyes down
- Key #1- "stretch" the right hip up more and longer on the backswing
- Key #2- Press into the ground longer so you can thrust, point the belt buckle to the sky.
IMO the posture and Key #1 stuff is the priority for now. More about that in the video
Good comparison here
Looking better dude. The basic answer is you keep turning/opening as you transfer the weight forward.
You are kind of getting the axis tilt from "falling" back a bit, still a lot of weight in that right foot.
Compared to this pic. Almost have to make slow swings where your right foot is very "light" on the finish. What will help is having the knees/thighs come together on the followthrough.
Only question I have about that is I took a look at the sliding hips thread and it talks a lot in there about not having the shoulders or hips very open coming down or at impact. The tour pros are way more closed than I am so is it just a matter of squaring the face?
They may not be as closed as you think
Don't lose sight of how important getting the weight forward is to what is going on with your shots. With you "hanging" on your back foot, it's going to cause some directional issues. Basically it makes it harder to control the face.
