Greetings Coach: I have an unrelated question [I really look forward to tips each day]anyway,in my left hand grip,i have the two knuckles showing and I like to have my left thumb higher up the shaft not down close to my first finger. I like it this way because I feel the club more secure,more supported at the top. Any comment Thanks Coach

These are the two “BEN HOGAN “positions :LONG THUMB and SHORT THUMB .BEN HOGAN switched from “LONG THUMB “to” SHORT THUMB ” to alleviate his hook .I feel “LONG THIMB ” more comfortable as it supports the club up at the top
I don’t refer to long or short thumb. Long thumb can get you holding it in the fingers which puts the grip parallel to the knuckles. If so, you can overcup it at the top.
How To Stop Over-Cupping At The Top of the Backswing: https://ignitiongolf.com/stop-over-cupping-at-top/
Just close the gap between the thumb and side of the hand. Then the club fits perfectly across your palm. This is the grip Hogan did. Remember how he held the club in only his top hand? You cannot do this with a long thumb grip.
I like the thumb against the side of the hand. This allows the club to run from the lower knuckle on the index finger to the heel pad.

Not sure if this is what you are doing. Make sure you don’t have the gap between the thumb and side of hand. If you have this gap it’s highly likely you will be holding it in the fingers of the top hand. Holding it in the fingers can cause you to over cup the lead wrist at the top of the swing. So keeping this in mind double check your top hand position.
You referred to the 2nd axis on forward swing.
I believe there are two axis on the back swing.
Paul do you think I am correct?
Watch tonight’s tip. There are 2 axis in your swing.
Paul ,I have used this “aid “since the very beginning ,when I set up my “WORK STATION “.Instead of the right angle rod ,I put down a strap ,for fear of catching the rod in the swing .The WORK STATION is completed with another rod behind the heels (Not in front of the feet ).There’s a mark on the back rod where I should position the Inside of the heels (Width of the shoulders ,,measured with a tailor’s tape )
That’s great you are making a set up station. This helps you keep the angles in check.
What is the best way to get better at firing the hips. I see improvements by working on the four positions: coiling, hinge, touch legs and touch head. But I do it slowly. I am not as straight when I try for maximum distance.
If you are trying to get more power you will lose accuracy. Once you get the distance you are after then you focus on accuracy and precise positioning so you can repeat it at a faster speed.
Any of these drills will get you firing the hips faster. These are my favorite two:
