You mean way too far left, of course.

However, you always end up at the same place, so go with what works for you. On your first step, you're getting your upper body into position for the swing. If you were to change that first step, it would screw up the swing and you'd have a big learning curve.

I'm amazed that Sk8 found that backswing problem. Kudos, Sk8!

On both the backswing and the forward swing, the hand should be falling as the ball falls, so that you feel no pressure on the hand (positive or negative) at any point during the swing except the downward pull of that ball at the bottom of the backswing and and to a lesser extent as it goes back from there to the top of the backswing. If Sk8's right, then you might feel your hand pulling the ball prior to the bottom of the backswing, and if so, that's the point you want to work on. In your case, you might lose a little height, but will gain consistency.
