Paul, could you address the angle of the shaft at address and at impact? I set up with the shaft at about 45 degrees from ball to hands. At impact I’m at approx. 50-55 degrees. Should I work on coming back to 45 degrees at impact?

Working on this will drive you crazy. The body angle changes in the downswing so the angle would be more up. Check out Jack Nicklaus’ angle from set up then impact. He is up too.
Your tips make a lot of sense if I keep practicing the drills I will be carrying the whins on the Old Course easier,
Assuming as an instructor you want feedback just like we students do ( by looking at ball flight, right?). This one drill has helped with my accuracy and distance. Thanks for slowing me down and making me think through the whole swing. This is the one drill that I have seen the most improvement with.
Appreciate all you do. Cheers.
Great tip/drill Paul. One can do the half to half inside.
Could I get a link to the golf shirts please??
Hi Paul, I notice when you do the L90 in backswing, (could be camera angle,) it appears that you club is pointing straight up. I thought is should be more layer back to enable the circular path.

Yes, this is the camera. I like the butt pointing just inside the target line at 3/4 back.

Hey Paul, Great tip! I have to avert my eyes when you imitate the chicken wing and over the top etc. – while playing, rather than watch a bad swing over and over, I pretend I am looking for something in my bag because it’s just too painful. From now on, when someone turns to me and asks “what am I doing wrong” – I will direct them immediately to Ignition Golf! 🙂

Here is the reply from David:
Yes–definitely apply when practicing.
Give yourself short focus periods (3 – 5 shots at a time) and see if it “frees” you up!
Let us know!

When does the right arm begin to fold on the backswing?
March 6, 2019
It is going to fold as soon as you take it away. So one piece as just start it back then the right arms folds against your side until 3/4 back then it comes away as you set the top.
