Straight down - towards the golf ball. Puts more tilt in your shoulders. Your left shoulder is no longer oriented towards the golf ball at the top of your backswing, right? It's oriented towards the golf ball.
David, you worked on this in FL with Dave. It was the entire first half of your lesson. It's not new. You're doing it some, but you need to do it more.
On the left I've drawn the oval (a circle, but it's tilted, so it looks like an oval) on which you should turn your shoulders. The point on your left shoulder should trace the first 1/4 of the oval down and back to the red arrow. I've also marked your head.
On the right, you can see that you've turned your shoulders flat, with the red point missing high of the spot on the oval marked by the red arrow. You should move your left shoulder down along the orange arrow (straight down) to get that red dot on the red arrow tip. Your spine angle from FO (the green line) won't change.
Just do this in a mirror. Whatever you feel you feel, but that's the motion itself.
Again, not new - just exactly the same thing Dave had you doing in FL during the first part of your lesson.
