You gave me a tip the other day because I was what I thought coming out of the shot http://ignitiongolf.com/follow-through-eyes-tilted.
However, in this tip you mention that I would be topping the ball. In fact I am hitting it fat creating a large divot and the ball is going high right. Is the same tip going to resolve this problem or is it all one of the same?
You have too much weight on the back foot at impact.
Here you go:

In this video of Sergio Garcia does his hands seem to drop quickly because he is squatting a bit in the downswing? I heard most consider Sergio swing somewhat unorthodox but I still like it. Also, look at angle he gets at the top. It is like 75 degrees! I know 90 degrees is easy to get because that is natural were your hand wants to be. Maybe there is a drill or exercise to help me work on it. Thanks!
FO (slow motion)
The wrist angle is compressing because his wrist allows this to occur and the fact he is starting his body rotation instead of just pulling the club down. The squat is not a squat it is just his legs turning to face the camera again.

I’ve been recently having some problems with the position of my shoulders and arms during the downswing.
for some reason, when i start the down swing with my hips, my upper body is turning, but my arms are lagging way behind.
and so, during impact, my body is already facing fourty-five degrees towards the target, while my hip is further ahead.
To counteract this, i unconsciously started to pull my swing down during the beginning of the backswing, my make sure it catches up with the rest of the upper body.
at first i thought this might be a connection problem, but my armpit feels tight…
it also goes along with a problem i had before, when my hips would almost face the target during the moment of impact
have i taken the lower and upper body seperation problem way too far?
any help would be great.

Yes, you are firing the lower body too hard. Did you not see this tip:

Great drill Paul. Should I apply this to all of my golf shots including pitching and chipping? Thanks very much.

Pitching – I need to you hinge the club right away to the different backswing lengths but yes you are keeping the powerless in the downswing.
Chipping – this is like putting. The stroke is short so you cannot let them just fall down. You need to be using your putting stroke. I have tips on these topics in the red navigation bar.
