Few things that stand out:

Arms at set-up

Head moving down on the takeaway

Rotation of the left forearm on the takeaway

All 3 of these are related and end up making it hard for you to have some consistency

Here are my suggestions

Practice the takeaway copying this motion of the left wrist hinging, there is no volume so don't worry about that.  Will make it much easier to strike the ground consistently.

Great! Thank so much! Ironically enough the other day I was working on having my arms more beneath my shoulders and not reaching out so much. I'm headed to the range right now so I'll put your good advice to use and get back to you on how well it worked!

Gracias!

Hey guys, sorry I couldnt get this up yesterday but I was pretty busy.

I tried to do everything mvmac advised and I think its slowly getting there, but it still feels weird to set up to the ball right now.

Here's a 7 iron...

Cheers!

If it doesn't feel "weird" then you aren't making the adjustments

I'd also suggest sticking tees under in each armpit, that will really help change the picture to the set-up.  Can hit balls with the tees under the arms too

    • Day 510: Did some weight/pressure shot drills in my office at work without a club. Did more takeaway/backswing work at home, and hit some foam balls at slow speed incorporating backswing and weight/pressure shift elements. 
    • Day 77.  More wall drill, mostly with the wall and not with the club in my hand.    At one break I did grab a club and practice a slow backswing that felt like what I'm doing with the wall drill. 
    • I worked on coming in more "in to out" and worked on stopping my right shoulder firing away right at the start of the downswing - I finally fixed my coming-over-the-top issue. However by NOT coming over, I noticed that I'm now coming in way under the plane and I'm constantly hitting turf then ball. I was able to hit the ball somewhat when I came over the top because my clubhead at least was on plane by doing so. Now it's way under. What I don't understand is that if I'm keeping my shoulders and hands back from firing across while also shallowing the club, won't the clubhead always come in under the plane? The only way this wouldn't happen is if I steepen the shaft on the way down so the clubhead isn't stuck, but I heard that's a no-no... so I'm not sure how to proceed. (downswing at shaft parallel - orange line is the shaft lane)      
    • 9th hole.  Not an easy one for me, since it's a hard green for me to hit.  Last year I had an awesome chip in.  This time I actually hit the green and drained the putt (about 20 feet). Five done, 13 to go this year.
