Take it away, nice and easy
Find the right position every time
THE fault of having the club come inside too quickly on the takeaway is a situation that most amateur golfers experience, yet it is also one that can be remedied, rather easily.
Jon Woodroffe, an Advanced Fellow of the European PGA and an England Regional Coach of the Year, says this common error on the takeaway occurs when you allow the clubhead to get sucked in too quickly behind your body.
To check the correct position at hori- zontal in your backswing, go to that point and turn 90 degrees to your right and then lower the club to get in your address position.
Once you have done this, and if the clubhead is too far to the right, you are bringing it too much inside on your takeaway. If it is too far to the left, it means that you are too far outside on the takeaway.
Step One Get to the point of your backswing where the shaft is parallel with the ground.
Step Three Lower the club. You should be left with an exact replica of your address position.
Step Two Turn 90 degrees to your right (right-handers) so the clubhead is pointing out in front of your chest.
