I'm having a hard time reconciling some of what I've been working on in my lessons. My main issue was coming in too steep and going OTT, key#4 stuff. What helped me to fix this (work in progress!) is to feel my hips and shoulders stay closed longer in the downswing however, my next issue I need to attack is my hips are too square to the ball at impact and I'm hitting a lot of pushes and not getting enough extension through the ball. I end up too crowded at impact and elbows separate and all that other yucky stuff!
My homework for this is to get my trail knee working more down the target line and less out towards the ball but I haven't been able to get a good feel for this yet. I'm wondering if getting my trail shoulder pointing down towards the ball more at impact will help with this but haven't had a chance to try the theory yet and don't want to stray too far from what my instructor is asking me to do.
So I guess the question is: How do I continue to slow my hip rotation rate, swing out to the right AND "clear" my hips through impact??
I have faith that I'll get there but if anyone has any clues to help me wrap my head around this piece it would be very welcome.
EDIT* maybe I should have put this in my swing thread? If so the mods can feel free to move it
