Hey guys, i really been struggling with a proper takeaway. I understand how to start it but i always get lost on how to get the club parrell to my target line at the end of the takeaway. I had been hingining my wrists sooner to get the club on plane but been noticing a lack of distance and accuracy. Losing a lot of my shots to the right, even with a stronger grip.
I recently stumbled accross this web page that breaks down Adam Scott's swing:
The author talks about how Scott slightly rotates his forearms so the club is in the correct position for him to finish the backswing:
"Scott does a great job on the takeaway. I want you to focus in on his golf glove. Watch how, when his club is parallel to the ground, the logo on his glove is facing the camera. In fact you can see the logo by the time his hands are passing his back leg. This means that he allowed his forearms to rotate during the first step of the backswing."
I started practicing this last night at home and it seems to be an easier concept to grasp as opposed to hinging the wrist earlier. I felt like I was in a more solid position at the top of my backswing and the motion / tempo felt more "fluid". I also felt I was able to get a wider arc going back and have a flatter swing with better weight shift on the way down.
I don't know if there is a right or wrong way but does anyone here slightly rotate their forearms on the takeaway? I still need to test this out on the range; hopefully tonight.
