I could never get the timing of the left foot down. But, always wanted to as it is an easy way to start from the ground up.

It is really tough for me even now.  I have to plant my left heel completely before I start my downswing.

I “feel” that I make a definitive pause while I plant my heel.  It feels really odd. If I don’t, I rush my transition and start down too soon and the results suffer.

Without getting into weight shift and angle of attack, what are your thoughts on this?

Letting my trail arm "fly" has been a great thing for my game. What's important is that I don't try to "place" the right arm higher, it's synced with my pivot.

I'd film the swing first though to confirm it's actually tucked. Trail elbow might have nothing to do the distance lose.

I know the young guns on Tour have a severe right elbow tuck throughout their swing, but I am neither young or on Tour

With the younger guys now, I'd say it's the opposite.
