We'd be happy to help, but better camera angles and better lighting (and/or slow-mo video, ideally) would be very, very helpful.

To me it looks like you get so into the habit of twisting and throwing your arms outwards that your entire swing shifts outside and causes poor contact. I’d need to see a face on view to confirm but it looks like you fire your hips at the same time you fire your shoulders but it should actually go like this: Legs go while shoulders finish the rotation to the top of the swing, and then your shoulders will fire because the hip turn will almost force your torso to turn and hands to be thrown at the ball. You have a good swing so it looks like you’ve taken lessons before. Work on making sure you fire your hips first, then let your upper body follow along. And remember, if you don’t hit the middle, make adjustments and practice slowly until you find a speed you can hit the middle at.

Yeah man, I agree. I don’t get it though— you know how all the pros and every decent player can get their trail shoulder beneath their head on the downswing? For some reason, my right shoulder gets caught up with my head and I feel like it is a cause of inconsistency. Whenever I swing, there’s a whipping motion with my head and I can’t stop it. Do you or anyone else have any advice for keeping a still head on the downswing? I’ve searched everywhere and can’t find a single swing tip on this. It’s so bad that I get minor abrasions on my chin from my shirt rubbing against it all throughout my golf swing.
