Here's an update of my progress, I have to trim the video of me doing the drill, which I will do in a bit... Let me know what you the @iacas and/or @mvmac.

I will continue to do the drills and post a weekly update... yesterday I used the broom and a 9 pan to practice the drill, the servers looked at me funny.

Can you film yourself doing the shoulder pitch/driveway sticks drill? Because here's what I see, right off the bat:

I like the setup, but then you stand up a ton, which means you have to dive back down, which directly leads to losing your balance late.

I sure can, @iacas do you think stand say 3 inches further from the ball will give me the feeling I don't  need to "dive" for the ball?

You should probably stand farther from the ball, yes. Look at the angle your arms hang in the left photo. They should be about 5-10° the other direction. If | is vertical, you're currently / and should be more like \. Just 5-10°.

If @iacas or @mvmac have the time. I’ve made a few changes. (Working with Ledge helped a lot.) I can’t tell much of a difference from 4 years ago, but maybe you guys can. The main difference I noticed was that I don’t step through anymore. I’m not sure if I’m standing taller or not, I really can’t tell. Let me know if you see any main differences.

Agree with @iacas. I'd also take some flex out of the knees and get the tailbone less behind you.

So set-up taller?

Yes it will probably feel taller. Stand up while gripping the grip, add a touch of knee flex, bend from the waist a little, then relax the upper back and neck as you lower the arms.

Well being 6’7” I’m leaving a ton of power on the table, and I hit it 280 (carry) consistently. The “dive” is probably a result of being so tall and for many years playing with clubs that didn’t fit me properly. When I was a teenager, my family wasn’t made of money, so I played with shitty box sets from K-mart or Walmart until I bought my first set of clubs myself at 17.
