PUSH BACK WITH LEFT SHOULDER TO START THE SWING
Impact is the moment of truth but it’s a product of what has gone before. One good move leads to another. I’ve found that keeping the clubface looking at the ball for a fraction of a second longer in the takeaway – with the ‘magic triangle’ of arms and chest moving neatly together – helps me get the club in the right slot at the top. The left arm should be straight and the right arm soft as the you push back with the left shoulder and hand to keep the face looking at the ball rather than rotating open in this initial takeaway phase. Then you simply turn your shoulders to get the club consistently on plane at the top. From there, the downswing starts from the ground up and you can drop the club down and attack the ball from the inside.
