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 really can't think of disliking courses to a point of calling them the worst I have played from a design POV. Like few other post's above it is conditioning that can make me to not ever want to come back.   I've played a course where the 'greens' are simply tighter cut grass here locally (not sure worth mentioning the name. They weren't pretending to be anything better - $9 for the round). But of course, it was clear after the first hole that I had overpayed.. lol.  Although @mattm16, I would feel like an absolutely spoilt brat complaining about anything I've ever played looking at your 'course' pics. hah  
    • I'm not a fan of Pete Dye courses either, but Mike Strantz is the one I like the least, from a design perspective. 
    • I don't like courses that have a creek or hazard that spans like 250-280 off the tee, especially when its on a par 5.  My preference is to at least have the option to hit driver, totally fine if the landing area at 270 or whatever narrows or is tree lined or bunkers or something, but at least let it be an option, don't force me to lay up to 240 off the tee on a 525-550 yd par 5. There are at least 2 courses around me that have multiple of those holes and I steer away from those courses when possible. There is a 3rd course that has 2 holes like that too but those par 5s are shorter, more around the 500 yd mark, maybe even high 400s depending on where the tees are located so they're still reachable with 2 really good shots.
    • I've seen a guy do the toe/heal/toe/heal thing so that's why I was just making sure😉
    • Pete Dye forces you to play the course his way. Which means, on this hole, hit it 250, then hit it 150 to this green. He has a lot of constriction points, and force carry.  I played TPC Sawgrass, it is kinda meh visually. There are about 3 blind tee shots you need a caddy to tell you were to aim or you end up in a bunker or water. Then there is hardly any spots to run the ball up. His courses feel gimmicky.  Jack's courses are just meh to me. They are not fun to play. I think he puts to much priority in hitting the perfect tee shot. Its been a while since I have played one. My opinion now might change.
