It seems to me that Eric’s right heel comes off the ground much sooner than yours does, yet you didn’t mention it. At contact he is already up on his toe. Is this significant? Also, please tell me which tip has the varying ways one can practice firing one’s hips without actually swinging a club.
Just browsed through the tips and found the answer to both of the questions above. I’m good to go.

I think I did mention that. For his weight he has to drive his lower as hard as he can. Once he gets bigger I would keep it down more. Tiger and many other kids look like this at impact because they have to drive the lower body so hard.

One thing I noticed about Eric is that his spine angle appears to be vertical by the time he reaches the impact position, whereas Jim has maintained that angle. I am similar to Eric in that my spine is also more vertical at impact than at setup. It is something I have been trying to fix. Is this due to Eric’s hip turn?
My hips are in a good position at the top of the swing and I am really working hard to get more hip turn and to straighten my front leg in the downswing. Even though I use straightening the front leg as my downswing trigger, I have not been able to get it straight until very late in the follow through. It is nearly straight at impact, but then bends more as I release the club. Any ideas how to fix this, I have been doing the drills you suggest, but nothing seems to completely fix it?
Not sure what video you are looking at. I just watched Eric at impact and he is holding his spine angle at impact fine. Just look at the pattern on his shirt.
When I see people raise up through impact it’s when they are too tilted at set up. When you are too low you will stand up. If you stand up and do a taller setup there is no reason to stand up. So definitely check it.

The lead leg should still be bent a impact. It will not be locked until at least the back arm is parallel to the ground in the through swing.

That bend after impact is a little slide. Got to go slow and and focus on it locking then continuing to the follow through. Once you can do it you slowly speed it up. Follow these cure slide tips. They may help too:

I’ve been working on firing my hips and having a stable lower body to create the resistance with the upper body. That coupled with your favorite drill to get the wrist hinge incorporated has made huge improvements for me. I hit further and with greater impacrt.
However I do notice when I am playing I do hit some shots straight left. These are either o/b or way left in the rough. What do you think is happening here? Am I rushing from the top?
Pulling is arms pulling the club down. I have tons of tips on this. Keep in mind they are shorter clubs. In your mind you are not trying to drive the hips hard like you would with a driver so you may be rushing or helping it. Just feel the club nearing the top. Before the arms start coming down make sure the legs and hips are moving first. For 8 iron or less you may want to use the belt buckle as the trigger.
