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?

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.

Pulling the ball
Hi. I have a lot of problems with pulling the ball. It happens with the driver and the irons. The ball flight is straight or sometimes a hook. It is worse when hitting off a tee. I must be coming from outside.
