Best downswing motion
My question involves the motion most typical used to start the downswing for good players. I have read/heard that some players start the downswing with the right knee moving toward the ball, others start with a shift of weight to the left foot, Others start with a hip rotation.

Keeping the club near your body
My question is on transition from the top. Periodically I tend to rotate my back shoulder out and as a result end up with my hands away from my body and a SHANK. Do you have any ideas for a swing thought or a first move to better manage that transition from the top?

Keeping hip rotation
I've started hitting my wedges fat. Short shots, full shots -fat! I've tried a check list of diagnostics: tried flattening my swing, steepening by swing,weight foreward, head still, quiet lower body, active lower bory, shoulder turn, less active hands- still fat.

Pulling the ball
I carry a 5 handicap but when I get in trouble it is usually because I pull my driver straight left. Usually my driver goes strait or fades just a little. What do you think happens when I pull it dead left
