I like your spine angle tip. I have been told by some friends that you need to keep your eyes on the front of the ball not the back of the ball. Your comments please.
They are telling you to do this so you hit down on the ball. This is why you never listen to friends.
You need to watch the back of the ball if you want to learn the backwards tilt of your body through impact.
Here are a bunch of tips so you know how the body tilts at impact:

One you get this by looking at the back of the ball you then see the ball as part of the landscape as you are looking down at it but you are not fixated on it.

Also, don’t listen to your friends. This can totally conflict with what I teach and/or harm your swing.
This is a great enforcer of you help breaking my old habits.
Lifting the foot up also helps me remember to fire my hips to allow the club to swing through more on plane. Then feeling my knees touch while the club matches my ears on the back of my head with my upper body at a slight angle…
How sweet it is!
Good stuff. Glad you liked it.
This too is something I struggle with. But, I’ve noticed I even tend to loose the spine angle when swinging indoors and working on leg shift. I will try watching in a mirror…I’m sure that will help. Anything else for those indoor practices?
You just need to delay the reaction to look for the ball. You can try this indoors:

If you make this a habit you will be less likely to come out of it.

Watching this tip, I am reminded that you professional golfers all seem to have a “lowering of the head and possibly torso” during the first part of the downswing and prior to impact. If I watch face on slow motion video of your swing and pick a distant point even with the top of your head, just before impact your head is below the distant point I used for reference at the start of a swing. I can also do the same with a DTL view. In thinking of this, I thought at first it was a result of the hips moving forward faster than the upper torso moved and therefore resulting in a drop of the upper torso while the head stayed behind the ball. However if this happens, it would seem to me you’d always be hitting fat? What is that movement caused by? I really enjoy and have learned a great deal from your daily indoor practice LESSONS (amateurs give tips LOL).
Glad you like the tips. I appreciate the feedback. Don’t over think it. Over 25 years, I have done a lot of thinking about it.
The head definitely lowers as you hit the ball.

Reason 2: You are watching what you are hitting so you tilt your head down to watch it.
These 2 things lower the head. More than that though and you will hit it fat. This is why I said approximately the same angle not exactly the same angle.
You would do not hit it fat because the club is not fully released until after the ball is hit. At impact there is a slight angle between the club and lead arm (forward shaft lean). So the club hits the ball first then descends into the ground.

The tip to lift your heel lift 3-4″ lift just before you hit the ball is key
It sure is. I see so many people who are flat footed. This is the tell-tale sign of just hitting with arms. Got to get the body moving to hit it long and straight.
