Do I flip because I dip?

I say this because I have been there, done that as the saying goes. My advice is do not pass go, do not collect $200 and do not do any more swing drills until you can reset yourself and get rid of that awful tension!

But your current grip will not allow you to do the right thing. So you should really fix your grip first.

1. IMO you need for an rotational release a deeper hip turn in the backswing. Now your hands are so too deep behind you and in the downswing you are in a stuck position.

2. You have no spine tilt at the top of your swing and no tilt in the downswing. Therefore there is no room for your arms.

3. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think as a result of a bad transition there is too much pressure in the right foot.

At address there is enough spine angle towards the ball, but it seems that you're too close to the ball and need to do both straighten your spine and pull your fists bending both arms in order to catch the ball. However there is no forward lean on the shaft at address, which I think results problems with the hand action.
The drive force for hip pivot is produced mostly by right foot. So I think, it is not that much a faul to keep the ball of your back foot grounded relatively late.
By the vid your shoulders seem to turn quite nicely. My next idea would have been, to monitor, if you stall your shoulder turn a bit just before impact, cause the lag seems to have vanished by the time shaft is horizontal on the down swing.

First, try to get your right elbow pointing at the ball in transition, or think of keeping your elbows closer together during the swing. Many quality swings have the right elbow visible under the left arm at that point in the swing. Also, I would recommend you look at Monte's bump, dump, and turn to get your lower moving first in transition. Hope this helps

Edit - the other thing is, people have posted several ideas. The OP posted a question about dipping - and is working with a teacher. The responses were related, but not directly so - or at least not explicitly tied to the outcome, not that I can see anyway. I think the critical thing when making significant changes when there are a series of related issues, is to make the changes systematically. Hopefully your teacher sees a sequencing of changes and a process for you to go through, but otherwise I am not sure how one would implement the kinds of input here.

There is no way to know whether the throwing is a cause or a band-aid until you start holding the club in a way that makes it possible to hit the ball without throwing. Everything will change if you fix your grip. Old problems will disappear and new will emerge.
