I am really trying to stretch it out. It might seem like I did not take your advice from last time but I did, and I am trying.
To add to this, if you think about it in 3D space, if you turn your torso MORE but keep the right elbow in the same place, it'll be farther in front of the shirt seam.
Lack of turning (or slow turning rates) lead to wanting to feel like you finish the backswing, so you are MORE likely to retract and externally rotate the shoulder and bend the right elbow more. think about it this way: if I turned your shoulders 30° and told you to make a full backswing, what would you do? Now what if I turned your shoulders 120°?
Turn more. And do it the way we've talked about.
It'll help your rates on the downswing too. Probably won't do much with your knee work, but it may since you'll have more time to slide forward.
P.S. We see LOTS of good players who only turn as little as you do. Very arms/hands reliant golf swings. Understanding the proper turning tends to add distance and accuracy.
