No. Not really.

Read that thread. Compare and contrast…

It seems to me like the video agrees with that thread, at least as far as how your posture ends up. I think she's advocating starting out with the incorrect posture so you can move away from it into good posture. What am I missing? Just that the first part is unnecessary? Or is she not advocating enough posterior tilt?

She's advocating for a "straight back" among other smaller things (chin up?).

Yes, it doesn't make any sense. Just do it right when you address the ball. The more adjustments you add the more complicated it makes things.

Thanks.  I found it interesting because I've had to remind myself to "activate" my core stomach muscles at address in the past. I have a long torso which, combined with a core that is not as strong as it should be, has led to lower back issues.  Sometimes my back muscles take over when they shouldn't  (not just in golf). This sounded like a potential checkpoint but if it doesn't make sense I won't do it.

    • Played my first full 18 today. 😁   I can now answer the poll. 😃
    • After shouting a 98 today (under 100 -- 1st time ever!) and feeling I could've done much better... Day 8: Practiced with irons... specifically focusing on setup and tempo (30 min). Here's a typical view I had of the pin today.
    • 91 today playing Falling Creek from the whites (69.2/120 just under 6,100yds).  The weather was fantastic so it was great to be out there again.  With the rain last night, knew the greens would be a touch slower today so it was not as crazy on the putting today as was a couple weeks back when I was at this course.  Nothing to brag about in terms of stats, just a good round of golf.  Biggest surprise hole of the day was the long par 3 #5 (199 from the whites).  A threesome was just ahead of me and as I was solo, they let me play through.  Great - now an audience, but I just acted like they were my son and grandson.  As the flag was marked in the front of the green, I took the advice of the guy I played with a couple weeks back to just get the ball to the front of the green.  As 199 is pretty much my max for a 3w, I figured that I should be able to hit it solid and let it roll out onto the green.  Shot went as planned and when I got to the green could not find the ball in front of or just on the green.  Could it be that I have my first ace?  Nope - cup is empty and that is when I look up at the very  back of the green.   There the ball sits about 2' from rolling off the back.  Now it is a matter of just getting it back down to the hole.  An easy putt off the back fringe and the ball rolls down the hill to stop about 7' from the hole.  Wound up two putting from there and left with a bogie.  It felt good to think my way through.  Ended the round partnering up with a couple of young guys to finish out the last four holes.  A good way to end the round.   
    • Have to second that one.... Also I have worked hard to get weight on the front foot (have said too many times how this has been my nemesis as I lost all toes and skin on my left foot in a 2016 motorcycle wreck, there is grafted "paper thin" skin there now, so breakdowns can happen quickly).  To help with that I have worked hard on better swing mechanics and worked to apply the principles of LSW.  One thing is sure, the more GIR's you have the lower the score will typically be.  Also nGIR's are key as well, which means I spend a lot of time in the backyard working on three shot types - a wedge pitch shot, an iron bump and run and putter off the fringe.    Started the season somewhere just over 20 and per the latest from my Garmin Approach S20, it is just over 16.   
    • The trouble with watching Youtube videos is you can watch 10 of them and get ten different opinions and tips for the same thing.  In-person lessons take into account your individual swing needs.
