Hello Mike
Thanks for th great tip and hope to come and visit you at the Resort in the very near future and get some face to face instruction from you .
What is your personal opinion of statting the downswing by thinking of kicking in with the right knee / leg as I feel this helps me as when I try to begin with the other suggestions going around such as hips etc I find this very difficult to co ordinate , but would lioke to hear your opinion on this point of transition which is not easy.

see you soon and thank you.

Hi Mike, I developed a terrible habit and I can't correct it. On the takeaway, my right hand tends to re-grip the club and shuts the club face. I tried to keep the club face neutral or slightly open but somehow it just shuts with the unconscious re-gripping.How do I cure this re-gripping issue?
Thanks, Ty

What is a good drill to eliminate coming over the top


What is a good drill to finish the swing ?

I hold that is my biggest problem in golf
Letting go on the range I do
but transferring to the course is not ok

Hello Mike, I hurt my right wrist in January and I want to practice my swing with my right and arm. Any tips or drills for using my right hand and arm only?
Thanks, Jeff

Nice reminder of the fundamentals. Where the wrist cock begins seems to be elusive. Some teachers propose an early wrist cock others only after the club is past the midpoint in the takeaway, abut waist high.

How do you prevent "swaying" off the ball in the backswing? Especially since we're advised to load up the right side?

Thank you.

Nice tip Mike. Thanks. I subscribe to both Golf and Golf Digest and have for years. I read every tip and try most of them. Then I pick and choose which work for me, especially as I grow older. It often becomes which moves can I make that don't hurt the next day. It's all fun and should, it seems to me, give us more wisdom about what we are doing (as long as we don't get too lost along the way). Thanks again, Dan

Thanx Mike. Mike Weir came to mind when I saw your segment. However, in my case, I used to have very little 'wrist cock' at the top of my swing. So, I was asked to start cocking my wrist early in the takeaway and that worked really good for me. What it also did was to eliminate the takeaway getting too far behind my body (which forced an inside-in shot) or too far outside the ball line (forcing an outside-in shot). While the takeaway that you're teaching is a "fundamental" move, I think that it's good for some but perhaps not for everybody.

I thought you did a good job. The take away has vexed me for over a hundred years- well it seems like it. I realize my shoulder at 73 is less and just go as far as I can go and live with the distance. One of my playing partners is hitting the daylights out of the ball and he says it's because he is consciously cocking his wrists. But he does hit so fat shots now and then.

Yeah. You will need a totally different takeaway for woods!

If the wrists start to hinge early in the take away all on their own should an attempt be made to delay them from hinging, or is there a fault that causes early hinging? Thanks

Mike, can you explain in a little detail why the first 3 ft of the swing is so critical to the rest of the swing? I have hard many people say this but never a good explanation as to its significance. Your input is appreciated. Thanks

Would such one piece takeaway be applicable to the driver as well?
