Keep your Hands from Rolling Over
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.

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.
