Bad Takeaways Can Lead To Bad Golf Swings

Bad Takeaways Can Lead To Bad Golf Swings

 

Staying connected is a major source of power in the golf swing.  We usually see two different faults that can cause you problems with connection and they both are rooted in the takeaway.  Both can rob you from solid contact and power.

The first of these faults is shown below.  The path of the club on the right shows a takeaway that is way above the desired line of the backswing.  This usually leads to lifting of the body on the backswing, sometimes a reverse spine angle, and lack of rotation of the shoulders and torso.  From this position at the top, without a serious re-routing of the club, tends to lead the player to bring the club back down on the same very steep “over the top” path.   Making for non-solid golf shots and a ball that travels off line.

The next fault we often see is a disconnection of the upper lead arm and hands on the takeaway.  A “handsy” takeaway that leads the club too far under the plane line on the backswing.  This also causes a lack of rotation of the shoulders because the lead arm is running into the torso to quickly.  The trail arm needs enough space on the downswing.  Without creating that space on the takeaway, you are doomed from the start.  This can also lead to a “over the top” motion.

Above is a video where Mike describes a drill that will help you get that club started on the right path and keep you connected.

Fairway Bunker Shots

Fairway Bunker Shots 

 

In this video, Mike discusses the finer points of hitting fairway bunker shots.

Mike’s Rules For Hitting Fairway Bunker Shots

  1.  Use a club with enough loft to get the ball out of the bunker.  Make sure you get it out!

  2.  Take one extra golf club.  So if you determine that you are 7-iron distance away, take a 6-iron.

  3. Set-Up:  Make sure you hit the golf ball first.  Have a wider base to stabilize the legs and play the ball a little bit back in your stance.   Limit the leg motion for a better strike.

Hopefully these tips will help you hit your bunker shots better.

Golf is a side-on game. You stand to the side of the golf ball. In order to have a chance to hit the ball at your intended target, you have to be aiming relatively parallel to it. In the following video, Mike discusses how to improve your aim. He also discusses the importance of a pre-shot routine, the basis for good aiming.
