I always focus on getting my hands farthest away from my body while still staying on plane. That way I know I get a good turn and good lag for added distance.
I'm kinda along this plane of thinking, except I consciously think about keeping the clubhead outside of my hands (when looking DTL from behind me), until the club is parallel to the ground. From there, it's just easy movement to the top and getting my weight over my right side.
My only thought on the downswing is hitting the inside back of the ball with the butt of the club (helps me visualize compression).
