Camera angle shows a good shaft angle at impact, not sure where the flipping your talking about is happening, we have to release the club at some point

My lead wrist is cupping and right wrist is almost starting to bow, there's no slight cupping to it (bent back). I think my arms can be more ahead, less running out of right arm?

Agree

I think you're being way too critical. At impact it's good, after impact the lead wrist starts to cup, can't be flat forever, that would slow the swing down.

OK. It just, something looks off, like I could generate more speed through better sequencing/positions, but it's good to hear. I'm thinking I need more time doing this and fluidity will come.

I second this.

Is getting more shaft lean like this desirable? More and more able to do this at higher speeds but lose the lean at 3/4 to full speed.

This is what I mean by getting arms out in front more.

Notes: When I go at the ball hard, I stand up/extend, flip, lose control & distance. If I swing controlled, I get better impact conditions but don't get my weight forward.

Looks to me like you're in need or a pivot to generate power in the transition.  I'm no professional but what worked for me at this stage was forgetting about everything else(It's more ingrained than you think) and focus on the knees. Specifically, that right knee is a problem.  It doesn't flex back at all. I'm not advocating a sway, you have to turn around your knees but the right knee needs to flex back a little, maybe an inch.

Try this:  Think of both knees as connected. flex them back, directly away from the target line, together maintaing the distance between them. The left knee will close a little more than you realize because of the turn but what's important is that they feel tension, directly away from the target, at the same time and then you stop going back with the knees and hold that tension as you complete your backswing.  Then, as you feel tension at the top, fire both knees right at the target and you'll have a pivot...the hips and arms will follow the knees down the line and you will get that snap you're lacking. Once you get that, you can go back and modify but if it were me, knowing what you know and missing what you're missing, I'd be attaining that pivot snap at this point.

Best of luck. It's a great game.

Thanks for the tips. I'll run this by my instructor and see what he thinks.

Trying something a little different here. Swing thought is arms only. Able to do a full arm swing now, I know the hips aren't extending, my right heel still pretty close to the ground plus that funky follow through. But able to really get the hands forward this way.

I should get the ADD Monkey award. Got sidetracked again. Always wondered how the hell Mac O'Grady did this swing.

This is my sad attempt.

Surely you know what to do with that… :)

This I think? Still cheating @ P4 to get SAT though but not out of sorts like the above I think.

As Erik said

Also note how he doesn't "hold" his wrist angles. Yes he gets the handle pretty far forward at A6, but by A8-9, his left wrist is in dorsi flexion.

Squeeze the thighs together, dorsi flex both wrists, bury the chin in the right clavicle ;-)

    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long. 
    • I did not play at all last week.  My most recent score before today was a hieroglyph from two weeks ago.  Truthfully it was probably 94 or 95, but I did not keep a proper score.  There was alcohol involved. It rained heavily last night.  So I got us on at beautiful and challenging Osprey Point, the crown jewel of Palm Beach public golf courses.  I can only get a tee time when it rains and people cancel.  I am increasingly suspicious that morning rounds are being given away by politicians for unethical reasons because the "public" tee times are simply never available before 2 PM. Anyway, the course was a mucky mess with intermittent rain.  I got an 89, kinda good for me. I could not get a putt to drop today. But (to toot my horn a bit) the driving has definitely been switched ON for the past few weeks.  I hit driver on 11 holes today, 8 fairways, no penalty strokes, and they were bombs. I sure hope that I have turned a corner, though probably not.  It will all go to pot again soon enough.  I should not even speak of it publicly or suffer the wrath of the golf gods.  But while this lasts, confidence in the drive opens up some wonderful options when you can hit it much further than the people you are with. The courses are just not long enough.  Have a look at Falcon 4 at Osprey Point:   I love smart designs like this. The score card says 315 from the gold tees, but that involves laying up on the dogleg (which you can't really see from the tee box) and pitching onto the green like an intelligent person.  This hole is a trap. You can see the scrub brush barrier.  It's only about 12 or 15 feet high. The green is small and elevated, but the scrub brush hides the elevation.  There is not a lot of room to miss on the left. I have gone for this green twice in the past.  Both times I over-swung and pulled it into the woods. More recently I have simply played it properly.  But with the driver working I felt emboldened today.  Sure enough I found success at last.  My pic is not great here.  The drive came up slightly short of the green, not really 292. It hit the incline and just stopped.  I was close enough to putt though.  Yeah, I three-putted.  Oh well.
