But I'm still hungry to improve and one day I will become a pretty decent golfer.

Watch Mr. Scheinblum. He has a good explanation.
The advantage of a proper swinging left move is it's impossible to hook or push the ball. It a Inside - square - inside path of the club.

Where have you been, Mookie?
500 postings in the "golf style and fashion" section? Just kidding...

if you got some more spine tilt and kept the right arm in front of you....

And do not recommend the Tour Striker. I hit perfect shots from the hardest mat.

That's all I can do. Seriously in my DS my main focus is to stay connected and turn everything together. The shoulder catch up with my hips and that's OK. For me it feels powerful and in sync. To force my hips to turn harder from the top would be end in a disaster. I know that Hardy recommends open shoulders at impact but that is NOT possible for me. With more open hips and open shoulders I would get my hands more in front of the ball. I know. It has nothing to do with my right elbow. I have plenty space between my hip and my right elbow.
I don't know why. Maybe because this is my swing. I have to be realistic. I'm not 20 anymore and I have no SliceFixer in my neighborhood. My goal is not to look like a tour pro, search for the perfect swing or play on the tour.
Maybe my practice to swing hard left will open my shoulders. We will see....

Tommy, let me say what a good job you have done.
Maybe you need to consider that your body make up may need you to have your elbow "in front" of , or behind your shirt seam line rather than at the side at the top of your backswing. If that is the case Russ makes a good suggestion.
We are all built differently and no two swings are alike. It is possible that where your elbow is now doesn't suit you. It may be worth experimenting to see what effect moving your elbow position has on your ball striking.

The reason I think that the right elbow has nothing to do with my open shoulders is because I worked on this last year. Before my change to the OPS. Even with my armsy swing I wasn't able to achieve this desired position. Not on purpose, not with force. Maybe my "swinging hard left" will finally open my shoulders. Today I hit many wedges with "low" hands and "hard left". Consistency, contact and ball flight was excellent.
