Instead of trying to gauge stance width by matching the hands with the outsides of the feet, it seems to me that an easier way is the one you demonstrated. i.e. what are the relative positions of the upper legs at the “touch legs” position.
Back thigh one ball behind front thigh = driver
Both thighs equal = 7 iron to 3 wood
But what equals 8 iron to lob wedge?

That is a good way too. Some like the visual of hanging the arms down.

Great reminder Paul to ‘stay in the cylinder’ I find if my stance gets too wide I begin swaying to transfer my weight back and through. With the short irons, I sometimes close my stance too much. What are your thoughts on open stance for short irons, and closed stance for woods, long irons? Or, should I just concentrate on being square. Not that I mind being square…..

Yes, I don’t like that side stance. Harder to load. Harder to get off the back foot.
You can open the stance slightly for short irons when you are doing a medium backswing or less. Any full swing you need to be square.
This is the most important lesson in golf.

Paul ,Your method is not far from the one recommended by BEN HOGAN in his book .He only
adds the closed/open notions and the fixed position of the ball at address .
I reduced quite much the width my stance and found I was better hitting the ball .BOBBY JONES had a narrow stance but modern pro’s (BRUCE KOEPKA ,DUSTIN JOHNSON ,RORY Mc ILROYJUSTIN ROSE )have wide stances ,but they play golf in a different leagie
Yes, I don’t like their wide stances. Seems real hard to use the lower body. Narrower but not too narrow is best.
