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. Dumped way under with an open face and sliding.

Strengthen grip.
Keep lead shoulder level or low as you pivot/rotate.
Don't slide.

Takeaway is a little flat but position a the top is really good.
You also do a very good job of not pulling on the handle.

Your swing will be money in no time.

Agree with above.  Something easy to start with is keep your right foot down all the way to impact.  It will help you not early extend.

More vertical wrist set would help.

Big issue is the right knee is regaining flex and working toward the target WAY too early.  Well before backswing is close to being done.

  Thanks for the response, you mentioned the sliding and is that happening in the downswing when I'm getting out of the hip rotation and bumping?

Thanks for looking at my swing, what do you think a good vertical wrist set drill is and is my right knee gaining flex and working towards the target early the reason that I'm getting stuck and my upper and lower body out of sync?

The answer to second question is yes.

First question is many drills will help that.  Here is one.

Weight is moving left way too early, pressure down the right leg first and move aiming point back a little.
