“The swing is an action where certain things are caused to happen, and certain things are allowed to happen. Faults arise in trying to cause the things that should be allowed” -D. McCluggage
The takeaway must be caused. If HEAVED away correctly, EVERYTHING else in the swing can be allowed! By trying to lift the club, strike the ball, steer the ball, etc… you are creating errors that destroy the swing.
HEAVE the arms into a ‘swing’, and then allow gravity and rotation to move the club through the ball on a predictable arc… You’ll finish in a fully rotated, relaxed balanced finish.
It’s really that simple! …. It is not, however, easy….
