The One-Piece Takeaway Movement

This is a brief outline of what is in my lesson modules.
(Note: the references are for a right-handed golfer. I am a
left-handed golfer, myself. Please think left in place of right
if you are also a left-hander.)

You have positioned yourself at your golf ball, set up in a
comfortable posture, and you are now ready for your first
movement to take your golf club away from your ball.

The start of your first move is to draw your right shoulder and
armpit area back towards your right heel --- in a straight line.
The completion of this move will place you in a position which
features:
* The front of your shoulders closely in line with your
right foot.
* Your shoulder blades facing the green or fairway area
where your ball will land.

* During this single movement action you are to maintain your
posture angles.
* You must also maintain the position of your arms to your
body and of your hands to your forearms.
* There must NOT be any sideways movements of your arms
to help you turn.
* There must NOT be any turning of the hands.
* There must NOT be any "flipping" or "hinging" of the hands
at your wrists during the early part of this movement.

An often used instruction to start the takeaway is to initiate
the movement with your left arm and left side. Little thought
is given to your right side. Your right side has to move
backwards, out of the way, for your left side to arc comfortably
down and under your chin.

And, guess what?

Correctly pulling your right shoulder area back to your right
heel will comfortably draw your left shoulder under your chin
without any difficult pushing activity.

So, how do you pull your right side backwards as indicated above?
First, a practice exercise.

1. Stand up right. (Do this in front of a mirror if you can.)
2. Put your hands on your shoulders to prevent arm movement.
3. Firm your whole body.
4. Pull your right shoulder straight back to be above your right
heel.
5. You must feel the weight of your body about half way between
your right hip joint and your tailbone.
6. The front of both shoulders should be above your right foot.

Did you notice what muscle carried out this movement?

No! OK, repeat the movement following the above instructions.
As soon as you begin the movement try to identify what muscle
is pulling your shoulder and armpit area backwards.

Still can't quite figure out which muscle it is?

It is the part of your large back muscle where it passes over
your right kidney area. At least you will feel more tension
at this spot of your back muscle.

Your back muscle is very powerful --- when it is stretched out
and then tightened aggressively. The effort needed by this muscle
to draw your right shoulder backwards is not very much. In my
lessons, I use an arbitrary number like one twentieth of its
power.

This is the only conscious movement you need to do the "one
piece takeaway".

In the pictures and videos on my website you can see how my
upper body responds to the one movement described above.

The One-Piece Takeaway Movement — In Posture

1. Set up in your usual posture when addressing the golf ball.
2. Place your hands on the front of your shoulders.
3. Firm your whole body.
4. Be aware that your spine is now angled forward.
5. Pull your right shoulder straight back to be above your
right heel.
6. But, since your spine is angled forward your right shoulder
also arcs upwards as it moves backwards.
7. Feel your left shoulder arcing forward and under your
chin area.
8. As above, your arms must not move out of position to your
body to assist the turn movement.
9. You must feel the weight of your body about half way
between your right hip joint and your tailbone.

This turn in posture must feel comfortable.
You should not feel any pinching and stretching in your
sides or backbone areas.

Summary

Remember, the more movements you use or allow in your takeaway
movement then the more problems you will have trying to make
all these movements work together. You can do this. ButBusiness Management Articles, you
will have to practice more often.

If you can learn to do the biggest part of your takeaway with
one movement you make it easier to have a good golf swing with
less practice.
