Why do people hate the two-piece takeway?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

During the (brief) period when I was striking the ball consistently, particularly irons off the deck, I was using a two piece takeaway where I would cock my wrist almost immediately at the start of my back swing. 

 

I moved away from that and worked on a one-piece takeaway, since that seemed to be the most recommend method.  Ever since I've had super inconsistent ball striking, chunks, tops, accuracy issues, etc. 

 

This morning towards the end of a pretty horrific round, I tried using a two-piece takeaway again, and lo and behold, my shots improved immediately. 

 

Now, I'm going stick with this because it works for me.  I'm curious though what the perceived problems are with it.  Any thoughts?

The reason people don't like the two piece take away is because people confuse hinge with rotating forearms over. The problem then is you get the clubhead inside the hands. Its easier to get the club back to the inside if the clubhead is on plane or above the plane (outside of hands). The one piece keeps the clubhead outside of the hands. 

 

But do what works for you, no reason you have to be in the majority. honestly i have no clue what type of takeaway i have, i just take the club back.

I've been moving towards more of a two piece take away myself. I don't think matters much (ie: one being better than the other) as long as you're in a good position at the top. I chalk it up to being a player preference thing much like the grip. Check out Iacas' swing thread for some recently posted relevant stuff.
