I will be working on switching to the legs for power and see where that takes me. One question though, at what point am I, or even better do I work on swinging down as opposed to over the top. I seem to have periods where I swing with authority, straight and true, score well, and then fall back to another over the top swing and return to my slices.

You want to figure out how much over the top your swing is first. Is it just a little pull or a huge pull? Then pick one of the ways to start to work on it and start to cure it for good. I have many different ways to fix and over the top swing, so might want to check them all out. I would also start to slow down, harder you try to hit the golf ball then the more you are going to use your arms. Check out these tips:

Great tip Paul——And if we swing our downswing slower as well, it’s very helpful to feel “all” the important positions in the swing; slowing he entire swing down has really helped me to actually start to “feel” each position….Speed will come later! Thx again!

Yes, you definitely want to slow the swing down. This will gradually take the arms out of the swing and you can power it back up by using your legs and hips.

For me at least, this tip is pure gold. It describes my recent epiphany regarding my swing.
Pre-Wilson, I spent 50 years as a fast backswing, arms hitter. You can imagine my limitations with that action.
After being a Wilson disciple for 3 years, I finally have realized that the only purpose of the backswing is to set the club in a position to make a powerful downswing. Thus, I am in no hurry to execute the backswing or make a hurried transition. It has totally changed my thought process and the results are just as you promise in this video. Better contact, straighter drives and more length.
Also, I’ve always struggled settling on a downswing trigger. I finally found what works best for me is once the club is set at the top, I try to hit the ball hard with my right hip bone all the way through to the finish. This action feels powerful, ensures that I gain separation and use my lower body to get in your “hips-to-target” feeling (my favorite Wilson video), and is similar to your driving off of your right foot trigger.
Again, great video. I plan to view this one often.
