Will a bad takeaway cause me to have a reverse pivot?Video inside

I also battle a reverse pivot(mainly with the driver)..Could a bad takeaway lead to bad weight shift problems too?

You don't have a reverse pivot. Your weight basically never moves. It doesn't move on the backswing (nor do your hips, really) and it is nowhere near forward at impact.

 

 

 

That's why even with a back ball position you don't even take a divot with a wedge or a short iron.

 

You should post a My Swing thread.

I'm almost positive I know that golf course. If its the one I'm thinking of, that is one of the worst holes ever designed. #13 at Spring Lakes? 

 

As far as your swing is concerned, I agree with Erik.
