I love this mini-drill because my biggest problem is “finishing the swing” and this should make that automatic in short order. Kudos!

Thanks. I remember your swing. Yes, this is very important. Just add it as a habit that you always do.
What does it mean if every time that I follow through my club shaft hits my neck instead of my ear line?
Hitting the neck is fine if the club is parallel to your ears. This does not mean it goes down your back then on the neck. It has to be a fluid path to the back of the neck.
Are You Cheating In The Follow Through: https://ignitiongolf.com/are-you-cheating/
I would think you are just folding the arms a little earlier into the follow through so it is lower at the end. Freddy Couples did this.
With the wrist hinge at the end of the backswing, do you physically feel yourself hinging? What if you have a backswing which gets you into the correct position at the top, but the wrists just go naturally with the arms, without any separate identifiable movement by themselves?
Yes, you would feel this and make it happen until the wrists are unlocked and they do this without thinking about it.
Not sure exactly what you mean. If the wrists did nothing (no hinge) your could would be vertical at the top. You need to hinge your club. This literally takes about 2 weeks to master. Once you do it it will go there without thinking due to momentum of the club swinging back.

Does it make any difference when you hinge your wrists in the backswing?
I like a late wrist set.

A while back I recall seeing a tip where you explained that at the top of the back-swing the club should sit on the “V” created by your thumb and index finger in your right hand (for a right-handed golfer). This could be a good complement to this tip. Could you pls point me (link) to that prior tip?
Yes, that would be good as well. Here is the tip:

This tip, on the backswing, in combination with the one piece “Y” takeaway, has me delivering the clubface extremely flush to the ball. It is amazing how much fun hitting a golf ball is when you can do this. Paul, I don’t know how you come up with these ideas, but I am grateful that you do!
Glad you are doing well. I love hearing it.
These tips just come to me as I teach people. The golf gods must know that this info needs to get out so they just beam then into my head. Hopefully they don’t stop doing it. I

Letting the left arm swing back to the position where the club is parallel to the ground seems to get the hands moving on the right plane. Do you have any tips on this position in the backswing?

Here you go:

Very good. Everyone I have do it hits is great and it’s so easy. Not sure about hitting longer clubs so I would try them on the range first before playing. Might make the driver too short.
