Video Golf Tip | One Piece Takeaway

Many average golfers, weekend golfers, people who do not play that often, really have a problem with the takeaway. All kinds of problems. Sometimes they are too quick, other times the pick the club up. Here is a terrific little drill for anyone to improve their takeaway. That is to put a tee in the vent hole of your golf grip. Go to set up and you will see where that tee is pointed to the left side of my belt. As I take the club away I am going to practice my takeaway and see if I can still have that tee pointed right at my belt line. Right there. If I lift the club up, snatch it away to quick, this drill will really slow you down and give you an idea of what we call the one piece takeaway. Most great players try to get that move right there, where the arms and shoulders take the club away without any independent quick writs breaking or getting too much speed in the beginning of your backswing.

The Divot Mat Golfers need to be consistent with where the bottom of their swing contacts the ground, which is why the feedback from your divots is so important to developing a sound golf swing
Slicing Out Of Trouble Use your regular swing but aim to the right and open the clubface
How Arms Work In The Swing The arms work very differently in the swing, with the left arm staying straight up to the release and the right arm bending early, use this two club drill to get the feel of the proper motion of the arms working together
