Here is my swing: https://www.youtube....h?v=8nO9V_XznRk

I'm looking for any feedback, but also some flaws I'm noticing is I'm bending my knees at the top of my swing and I don't think I am coming around right on my downswing, hence getting stuck, which is leading to a slice or cut shot.
This is fairly new to my swing as I have been practicing the towel under the armpit drill to get my takeaway better and this might be side effect of that drill.

All feedback would be appreciated.Thanks

Yes, you are getting stuck.

Hips are outracing the shoulders, shoulders are outracing the hands.

The problems start in your takeaway and backswing. Overactive arms going back. Puts your hands in a weak position at the top, relative to the lead shoulder. So when the lead shoulder go, the hands do not follow. The lead shoulder do not pull the hands as it should do. And the arms stay behind throughout the downswing.

You also have issues with how you move your lower body.

You could study one of the following threads & videos:

Slicefixer's 9-3 drill
Monte's turn no cast drill.
Dan Carraher's straight arms drill.
Jim Waldron's Arm Swing Illusion.

Or even better. Take a lesson with one of them.

I am sure some other will chime in, but I don't believe you can hit a true slice if you are stuck or coming from the inside. Face angle dictates direction, path in relation to the angle dictates curvature.
