The takaway is fine, its the down swing. In this first pic on the down swing the club head is way to far outside. Look at tigers this is where it should be. "This is when the club is parallel t

Here's some general advice that applies to a lot of things for people who know how their swing should look (you can clearly see the look of swinging well to the left in your video): exaggerate the

Swinging to the right is something I constantly need to work on. I've tried a lot of feels to flatten out my shaft and get the club head inside at A6 and the "swing hard to the right" is the only one

From this deep, it's gonna be tough not to shank it.

Let the right elbow fold up off your chest a bit more and keep your hands more in front of your shirt buttons more. Then you won't have to shove the hosel toward the golf ball late in the downswing.

Thanks iacas.

When you say "keep your hands more in front of your shirt buttons", at which part of the swing should I be doing this?

The parts shown. Your hands get too "deep." Too far left in those images. Then you have to push them out to the right in very little time, resulting in a lot of shanking.

I see. So more steep/vertical. Thanks! I will work on this.

Probably, but not necessarily. You could keep the hands a similar height, and just have them less "left" or less "deep."

But they'll probably go a bit higher, too, yes.

Trying to slow my backswing down and get it less flat....still too fast and still too flat. Also trying to figure out why my irons are short. I have a decent clubhead speed ~115mph with driver, and good distance, but my irons don't seem to be going as far as they should.

I should probably get a face on view to see if I'm flipping. This shot was actually decent. 6 iron 190, flush, but blocked it.

Loads of good moves in there from what I can see. FYI - it'd really help if you could tidy up the camera angles (the camera should be pointing down the line of your feet (see middle image) to help with us seeing the angles. I'm no expert, but I would imagine your problems start in the takeaway - as @iacas says, you get your hands too deep. If you look at the stills below, particularly the red line in the third imagine, which you'd really want going through the ball, the club is really deep about halfway through your backswing. If you tried to hit a neutral position at A2, that'd really help:

I've always liked using Justin Rose as a comparison - if you check your position compared to yours, you should be able to see the difference.

    • I have stools in my kitchen. It’s how I came up with the description of how the move feels.
    • Not sure there was a particularly awesome shot, but played in a neighborhood scramble today and had a natural eagle on the 18th hole. Hit a 245yd drive down the middle, hit a 210 5W onto the green to 12 ft and made the putt in front of 30 guys from the neighborhood yelling and talking trash from green side. Great hole for me. Only the 4th eagle I’ve ever had.    day overall was decent. The way I hit today was typical for me, not bad, not great.
    • This is bsically the Pelz method, yes?  I do similar, however I don't think I have enough separation between my 1/4 swing vs my 1/2 swing.  Mostly I get too much yardage out of my 1/4 swing.  I have a bit of tape with the yardages written on it on my club just below the grip.   Best feeling, once I shot the pin with my laser and it was 65, so... pulled my 52 degree which had 63 yards (for 1/ backswing) on it. One hit, one bounce, bingo.  I thought I had discovered the holy grail, but found out quickly, golf is hard. But I digress...
    • Out here in WA state I don't know that feeling anymore.  All the barstools have been hidden away for over a year...
    • Distance is a lot more consistent off the 9 wood compared to the hybrid. L to R dispersion may be a bit wider with the 9 wood, but not so much that it creates issues for me.  Quite frankly, at 185 yds I am aiming for the fat part of the green anyhow.
