Be Careful With The Takeaway

The takeaway is the start of the golf swing. This tip explains you need to be carful with the takeaway. I say this because as people come for lessons as well at me watching people hit golf balls at the range there are a lot of people taking the club back wrong. If you take it back wrong you are making more difficult, if not impossible, to be in a great position at the top of the backswing.

I teach a rotational swing so you need to take the club with your body in a rotational manner. The opposite would be taking it back by see sawing your shoulders. Do this and you are in position to do the golf takeaway I am wanting you to do.

Watch this tip then be careful with the takeaway. If you do, you will find it so much easier to hit great shots because you will be in a way better position at the top of the backswing.
