Golf Takeaway Drill #2

Here’s another very simple but very useful golf drill to help you with the one piece takeaway.

I use a range basket in the video below but you could just as easily use a basketball or beach ball.

By the way, please use this drill and the other takeaway drills at the bottom of this page alongside the takeaway fundamentals video. In that video, I explain a couple of important checkpoints that you can measure yourself against to make sure your swing is starting off on the best possible path.

Takeaway Drill Video Summary

  • Holding a range basket, take your normal set up over the ball.
  • Go ahead and make a one piece turn until the basket is about hip height.
  • There should be no twisting or rotating of the basket as your take it away. If you were to look in a mirror facing down the line of your target, you’d be able to see right inside the basket.
  • You can also do this drill with a basketball or beach ball.
