@RFKFREAK, take this with a grain of salt but if I were you I would set my right wrist almost immediately as the first thing off the ball before your left arm start moving away in the backswing. You will have a much easier time staying on plane and not lifting up your torso to finish out your backswing. And yes, it will feel wierd.  

I don't think I quite understand what you mean.  I feel that except for probably too much lower body movement, my backswing is actually pretty good.  I don't see much movement of my torso on the swings.  Are you saying it should be completely still?  I fear if I set my right wrist too quickly that I'll mess up the timing of the clubhead bisecting my hands at A2.

You can still get clubhead to line up with your hands at A2. Just that it will happen little closer to the ground. A2 should be happen ideally before it gets to beltline anyway. Keep your arms closer to your chest till you get to A2. Don't let them get away so quickly.

Ok, I'll give it a go, thanks!

Going to rain today so probably won't hit the range again until Saturday as I'm looking to play tomorrow.

You're working on evolvr, so I won't say much here… but I do think that the right elbow folds and stays pretty tight to your body.

Should I want my elbow away from my body?

Depends. More importantly is the over-flexing.

Ok, thanks, I'll try and incorporate it with what my instructor has me working on (keeping lower body quiet from A1 to A2 and having the club raise quicker than my hands).

That's why I didn't want to say too much. He'll get to that stuff in due time… for now, it's probably too much to worry about.

Ok, sounds good.  I'll try it and if I feel it's too many pieces then I'll focus on what my instructor has me working on.

Got a response from my instructor and he said one of the important things to work on was steepening the shaft from A2 to A4.  This is the last swing of the evening and although I think in the practice swings the shaft is steep enough, it flattens out in the actual swing.  I think I may have to do some mirror work before trying this at the range again.

Super excited about the fact that I went to the range today and didn't slice my driver at all.  I feel like the mirror work definitely paid off as I have a better sense of what my arm angle has to look like to me on the backswing to get the shaft steep.  I think I did a better job of it.
