Looking for some help on not dipping in the backswing. Feel like that dip makes me stand up on shots and not rotate through impact. Swing video attached. Club is a 9 iron.

I dipped b/c my shoulder turn was fake. In an effort to get the top of my backswing aesthetically similar to the pros I dropped my shoulder and it pulled my head with it. However, I also lacked secondary axis tilt at setup away from target. These 2 faults were why I could not rotate w/o a flat looking backswing. Once I added tilt away from target I could rotate my shoulders on their natural plane and my side bend + tilt put me into an almost identical looking image at the top, this time with a real shoulder turn and minimal/no head dipping. It looked similar but it felt completely different. I now feel the loading my my trail leg and a real tight coil in my side/back. My backswing now looks very similar to Monte's and I finally have it almost on auto-mode not needing 5 swing thoughts to get there.

This all took a year of mirror work + 2 instructors to figure out, by the way. Hopefully won't take you as long! Also,this Monte article from a  while ago was a great supplement. I've read it about 30 times over the past few weeks: https://rebelliongol...-the-backswing/
