What to be copied? You just listed them. Also, turn your body fast.
THE CLUB SPEED CREATED BY PROPER USE OF THE LAG IS SUPREME, I DOUBT IF ANYONE WOULD NOT AGREE WITH YOU !!! STEVE STRICKER APPEARS TO HAVE RATHER QUIET HANDS IN HIS SWING…? PROBABLY MAINTAINS THE FAIRWAYS AND PERHAPS A LITTLE SHORTER OFF THE TEE. HAVE YOU A COMMENT ON THIS ??
THANKS, BE WELL, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
Not sure what you want me to comment on. I said or the great majority hinge the club fully as they hit the top. If 99% of pros do something then you should do it. Striker looks too stiff to me at the top. Also, keep in mind he has hit hundreds of thousands if not millions of balls with this swing and continues to hit hundreds of balls per day.
Hey Again Paul,
I just watched Hing! Is this hing the first part of your pre shot routine where you take a semi (hinged) swing before you set up and swing?
This is at the very top of the backswing. You are not even hinging until halfway back and this should be occurring because your wrists are loose. If you need to set this position then do so until it is perfect then turn your hands and arms back off.
Watching your right arm I realized I was slightly sticking out my right elbow and not keeping it close to my body. When I went out and did a practice swing with the elbow close with a full hinge I finally am feeling the lag. Thanks Paul…
Yes, this right arms should be tucking against your side if you are doing it right. If you have to manually tuck it for a while then do so. After you get it stop thinking about it.

I understand the forward hand cocking position and how to do that. It seems to me that the trailing hand doesn’t cock so much as it flexes backwards, as if you were holding a tray of drinks. In your video you don’t distinguish between the cocking position of the different hands. Do you advise that it should be the same?

Here is a video I did on the left hand at the top.

I want the right hand folding as you work on the left hand. Typically if you are right handed you will want to be tight in this hand. Just let it relax and it should cock into position.

Is there a tip on what should be happening with the right arm (for a right handed golfer) in the downswing?
Your wrists would be loose and your arms are coming down with the pull from your lower body. The wrists would be fully hinged. You can work on log drills to better help your arms into the downswing, this is a great one to start with:
