I normally think the "ground" stuff is over-rated, but you aren't making the most "athletic" move here or really using the ground much.

First, your setup is in your heels a bit. Not a ton, but enough that I'd change it. It limits how athletic you can be:

Then, your hips and knees and legs are just kinda "wobbly" and they're even wobbling the wrong direction near the end of the backswing:

You can see these in motion, of course, a bit more. You're "wobbly" on your feet and your knees and hips, partly from balance, partly from just being wobbly and not making a controlled but athletic, aggressive pivot.

Yeah I don’t feel centered. You can see pressure on the outside of the trail foot at A4. I also wonder if I’m just loosing my sense of balance getting older. 
 

So more hump the giraffe?

I don't think you can blame getting older. Learn to turn "into" the ground a bit more.

And no, probably not more giraffe.

Tried to get setup less in heels more in balls of feet. More turn into the ground and athletic pivot. Weight is really winding in the front part of lead foot at the end. Part of my thinking in more athletic pivot is less flakey, more conviction.

More of the same. Pretty used to weight less in heels more balls of feet now. Trying to turn into the ground here which actually gets my hands higher at A4. Caught this heavy.

Same stuff with the driver. Haven't been practicing with driver much, not as aggressive with the pivot. Not sure if it looks wobbly but should look better with more practice. Easy swings, happy to shallow and keep clubhead in front of body while not coming in on top of ball, looks like it's in to out.

Tweaked back 2.5 weeks ago, was crawling on all fours to pick stuff up from the floor, it was really bad for a day or two, took about a week to feel normal-ish, another week or so of no golf to be on the cautious side. Back still tender, but at least I can make a decent pass at it. Still working on turning into the ground, keeping the head relatively still, aggressive pivot. Swaying here last swing of the session. Also regress sometimes back to weight on heels. Constantly need to adjust to not put weight on heels. Video helps a lot in that respect.

Swing is a little across the line over the top at A4 can get it laid off and drop clubhead behind more but am happy that hips not going towards ball something that tends to happen on course. Just happy to be back on the course and back is holding up. The less weight on heels more towards ball transferred over from range practice. Next time will take a face on to see the turning into the ground is sinking in. 
 

That’s not a great camera angle. Will need to figure out how to get better lined up at course.

I’m not seeing it, Steve.

Good to hear. Back injuries suck.

Lay the club down on your toe line and set the camera up to that.

The biggest problem I have with not getting the camera angle correct on the course is being in a rush to set up the camera when it’s my turn to play.

It's just a smidge over the top and across. Definitely not in the corridor of death. What happens is it gets more over the top and across the line.

Thanks. I try hard to keep pace and not slow anyone down. If partners are not strict with playing honors, I'll position myself to tee off last.

Back feeling pretty much back to normal. Face on, can start downswing a little earlier w/upper body going towards target, still getting the hang of turning into the ground, but feeling a little more comfortable with it, there's a little sway.

Down the line, it looks like right hip, knee is doing an Elvis, separating from left hip, maybe I need to keep them, knees, more, "together", and more activating the glutes, free up rotation.

This thread is full of I think I know why I shank theories, but my latest one is shanks happen then the clubhead is over the top and too high at A6. If I get more drop kick, clubhead behind and lower and rotate, not just fling the hands, things work out pretty good. Basically more in to out but with hands lower. One tendency doing this is clubface tends to open up so need to remember to flex/bow lead wrist.

Setup with less weight in heels feeling much more natural now. For a hot second I thought golf shoes with the higher heel, the ones that look like sneakers encouraged less weight in heels vs TRUE type shoes, where feet are closer to ground and there's less lift, but psychosomatic.

I think I'm finally starting to understand this, athletically and instinctually. Although for me it's more the lead wrist flexing than the trail wrist pizza pie pan holding extending.

    • Anyone watch the ladies PGA today? Good lord that was tough to watch  even for someone like me with a horribly twisted level of schadenfreude sense of humor. Two foot putt that doesn't sniff the hole, two shot lead on a par 5 with a little pitch that she skulls like a hack and then continues to butcher, that was UGLY
    • You don’t think he mis-hit it?
    • I also hope the top 50 events are just a free money grab for the players who played well the previous year and not part of the season points race.  If you are a top 70 player, you are going to get to play in any tournament that you want, giving you a huge leg up on 71-250.  If you are a top 50 player and you are awarded exclusive points for three more events, that would make those top 50 almost have a cake walk to a top 70 spot the following year.  I am fine with the TOC exclusive field awarding exclusive points to winners from the past year in one single event.  
    • Just a terrible decision by Theegala in the bunker.  I mean, does he not now his ball flight enough to realize he could hit the underside of the bank?  In the end, he should be out in one. Hit a shot on the green and force Schauffele to make birdie to win. Go to a playoff. 
    • I hope this encourages other US clubs/venues to follow suit
