Backswing Part 1 - Takeaway

  • One Piece takeaway - controlled by T-Spine rotation (rt side)
  • Wrists don’t change much
  • Slight shift back, but weight does not go to the outside of trail foot
  • Rt shoulder blade move

The takeaway is a simple movement that is easy to perform incorrectly.

A good one piece takeaway is a turning and side bending of the thoracic spine there should be about as much side bend as rotation at the takeaway. There “might be” a shift of weight, but the weight should not move to the outside of the foot.
