I am currently working on my take away trying to get my hands and arms closer to my body at A2, more like the image below on the right. The DTL video is my range session today after practicing in the mirror.

Hopefully I fixed the video.

I'd like to see you clean up the posture a bit, make sure the weight is more centered and not back on your heels. Will help with the takeaway.

I think that I'm getting into a better position now on the takeaway.  I'm trying to really ingrain the move now so that I don't have to think about it.  I've been getting really consistent contact and haven't hit and big hooks the last couple times at the range.

You are. The weight isn't in your heels.

When you're ready for the next piece… let us know. It's going to involve the extension of your back, the extension of your trail knee, and your hips sliding a bit forward as they turn on the backswing (or feeling that they're forward a bit relative to the URC).

I played nine yesterday and went to the range early today, and all of the videos I took were looking pretty good.  I think I've pretty much gotten the takeaway locked in at this point.

I've been working a lot lately on getting the shaft laid down more from A4 to A5.   It has taken me quite awhile to get a feel for this but I think that it is starting to come around.  My shot shape has become a lot more consistent with this swing, and my misses aren't nearly as big.  I am really happy with the progress that I have made up to this point.

So I have still been working on laying the shaft down and it has really been quite a challenge.  However, in my latest lesson Stephan suggested I work some on rotating my hips through impact, and this has been a much more natural movement for me.  Now if I can just get the shaft to the right angle at A5!

You've got it faster than I have!!  I've been working on the flatter shaft with Stephan for over a year.  This is a hard one that many of us work on a lot.  Your swing is looking very good now.  How is it working on the course?

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get out and play much.  We have had an absurd amount of rain the past couple of weeks, and most of the courses in my area have been closed.  My shots are more consistent though.  I have been able to play a couple of rounds, and my scores have been better.  I am really starting to get the feeling of coming at the ball from the inside now.

I got my latest evolvr analysis last night and I'm continuing to work on laying the shaft down during the downswing along with rotating more through impact.  I think that I am slowly making progress, however I was struggling with shanking the ball quite a bit when I actually got the shaft laid down properly.  Stephan gave me a drill where I put an additional ball right outside the one that I want to hit and it's worked like magic.

I'm continuing to work on laying the shaft down during the downswing and preventing my right knee from kicking out.  I'm quite happy with the progress that I have made thus far.  Swings are at half speed with an abbreviated follow through per Stephan's suggestion.
