How To Start The Golf Club Back

Here’s another tip on how to start the golf club back in the golf swing. I thought of this when a student recently came out for a lesson and I noticed he was really handsy as he took the club back.

This faulty takeaway stopped him from creating depth in the backswing. This lead to his club being laid off at the top. When you lay the club off, it can lead to an over the top swing causing pulls, pull hooks and pull slices.

In teaching him how to take the golf club back I came up with a memorable way to do it. You need to say to yourself, grip, setup, switch. That’s it. Once I explained it to my student he instantly learned how to take the golf club back and it was so memorable that he did it for every other shot while we did the lesson.

What this tip and understand these things then apply it to your swing. If so, you too can learn how to take the golf club back properly allowing you to be in a great position at the top of the backswing.
