@rap87, please don't start new swing threads, just add to this one, I've moved your post here

No problem, just didn't think anyone would want to dig through/read through all the stuff at the top to get to the new stuff at the bottom.

BTW my recommendation is still the same, your lead side needs to "bend" down more. You left shoulder runs into your chin on the backswing.

Gotcha, could you verify the Inside Out Swing change?  What I'm doing feels so dramatically different I'm not quite ready to add anything else in, but verifying that the club is on plane now versus the old would really help out the confidence at this point.  I have to say from looking at the ball flight and contact I'm very pleased but its nice to double check...

Looks like you're trying to swing more out by just getting the arms very deep on the downswing. While it may look like you are swinging more out (path still might be slightly left), the rate that the club head overtakes the hands and the motion of the head, consistency with path and contact will become an issue. 

 

My recommendation isn't just trying to make it "look" a certain way because for appearance sake, it's to help you improve contact and path aspects by addressing the priority piece. If you got things more centered, pivot more functional, there wouldn't be a "need" to manually get the arms behind you in order to try and swing out.

@rap87, I would definitely listen to @mvmac if I were you. He really knows his stuff.

Check out my swing thread and see the improvements I have made since spring following his advice (and some others help as well).

I hope I am not interrupting, and if I am feel free to tell me to shut up... I see several things that are wrong and I think I can help you out quite a bit...  Would you mind to much if I asked you to take some photographs of your grip, from your address position... From the Front view, left side view, and right side view, and also a top view at address... By the top view I mean what you are seeing when you look down at your grip...

No worries, might take a few days for me to get that.  I just recently adopted the "strong grip" from a more neutral grip.  My pro said I had the tendency to let the right hand go back to a weaker position.  He told me to really feel my right hand under the club, but it does feel uncomfortable as I'm not "used" to it.  I see the first 3 knuckles of my left hand but getting the right feel of the right is the issue sometimes.  

 

I guess how does one know that I have the right feel for that right hand.  I was thinking of sliding my right pinkie as far over top the left index finger as possible and that would pretty much "set" the hands in the correct position?

As to the centered pivot...I'll try to work on it but I'm a bit skeptical as to what I'm doing for show just because of how awesome the ball flight results are and I tend to make solid contact every hit.  For the first time I'm seeing Draws and the occasional Push, and very very occasional hook...Never anything starting left.  I felt the biggest thing next might be to get the wrists hinged more with the drop move.  I'll keep updated.  Have another lesson around 1st of July.

Just a suggestion, don't try to hinge your wrists at impact you will most likely hit the ball fat, this move will come natural...
