Not sure if this is the right place, but I can’t find another tip that clarifies my question.
I have been playing for 2 years, I practice twice a week and read everything I can. However my swing is very inconsistent. I have started to work with your powerless swing and have some good days and bad days.
After watching you swing I started to think that part of my issue may be that I am setting up with my left wrist partially cocked. It is hard to explain, but am I correct in saying that when you set up your left wrist and thumb should be in line with your forearm (also taking into account the cupping that will occur with a strong grip)?
The feeling I have is of no or little effort in holding the club up, it feels like it is hanging naturally
Anyway I hope I have explained well enough.
Thanks in advance for your help.

First, you need to be practicing daily. It is not about going to range and hitting balls. It is about the movement. So you need to be doing nightly practice swings at home working on mastering my swing positions. Each position gives you feedback and I can’t do them better than you. So you do the positions and look for the feedback until you have them mastered. You can use a mirror or reflection in a window if you want.
If you do not know my positions you need to go to the dashboard. Go to the FULL SWING slide. The first slide are the 8 lesson I teach to everyone.
You need your hands even with the ball at address with a neutral grip. Then you are taking the club away with your shoulder rotation not your hands. If you use your hands you will activate them. I want them powerless (once you have the positions). So if they are activated how are you going to turn them off as you hit the ball?

Paul, I found when I tried to fully extend my arms, they tightened up. To cure that I just moved both elbows closer together. It fully extended my arms yet my arms and wrists felt fully relaxed.

Elbows closer together is perfect. I have tips on this.
