This thread has been dormant for awhile because.... well..... my practice has been dormant for awhile. Nonetheless, I decided to reflect back on the advice that @mvmac gave me several months ago, review the old videos, really try to digest the suggestions and translate that with a few trips to the range over the past month.
All I can say is that there's lots of good stuff in there that I either buried (mentally) or overlooked on the first go around. Here is a video of one of my swings from a recent range session. Even though I'm not close to where I want to be, I can still confidently say that "the picture" is getting better than it was earlier in the year. I still need to work on keeping my head steady when I "bump" my hips forward. Right now, my natural inclination is to move my head forward along with my hips. But on the other side of the coin, I think my weight transfer is improving, my right foot is kicking in just a bit less (still room for improvement though) and my follow through is improved when my left elbow doesn't fold across the body nearly as much.
Kudos to Mike, I think you've give me some great advice and there still many months of practice that I can take away from what you've shared with me already.
