Get neutral in your takeaway
I work hard on moving the club away on a good plane and path, neither inside or outside the ideal line. That means quieter hands and more of a one-piece move for the first few feet. I turn my left shoulder under my chin to set the club in position, but also move my arms and hands away from my body to create width.
The shaft of the golf club should be parallel to the target line when it is horizontal to the ground, with the toe of the clubhead pointing straight up in the air.
