Re: What should my take away feel like

As Diggity said, make sure the clubface doesn't close on you, and also make sure not to get outside that line through the ball that forms the corridor's outside barrier.
Also, don't forget that (if you're a right-handed player) your left hand should be the dominant hand in the swing - the right hand is merely along for control. That was one of the biggest things I had to learn when I learned the fundamentals of the golf swing as it feels very awkward at first. However, once you get it down, your takeaway will be much more on-plane.
