REALLY nice video. Great explanation of the takeaway…I love the simple thought of just moving the whole club. Brilliant. Can’t wait to hit some more balls now!

Hi Steve, it’s now 2011 and I’ve just caught your video in Australia . I am looking forward to spending some quality time at the driving range with the anticipation that I will now be able introduce the one piece takeaway to my golf swing. I fully concur with the comments made by Spadecat a little while ago. I’m looking forward to never ever taking the club back with with my hands and an early cocking of the wrist again. I hope my current muscle memory will forget my previous swing!

Andrew Harvey says:

is this same for woods and driver thanks

Steve,
Brilliant video! It has improved my swing tremendously. A couple thoughts; how do I know when to begin my downswing? I seem to be over swinging. Also, I’m making descent contact, but not creating any divots. Thanks in advance.

RingerDaMan says:

Thank you for the kind words Dreama. The rest of the backswing is pretty simple really. Continue turning the shoulders until your left shoulder is out over your right leg. You should then feel like you are going to touch your right shoulder with the shaft of the club. You cannot actually accomplish this unless you let go of the club, but the thought helps to put the club in the best spot for the forward swing.

Hi Steve, great video there !! Excellent presentation of the one piece on plane takeaway. Could you take this one step further and tell me your thoughts on completing the swing from the toe up half way back position. Thanks in Advance…

RingerDaMan says:

This really depends on your grip. A stronger grip will require that your hands be more forward of the ball at impact. Weaker grips require the hands to be only slightly ahead of the ball at impact.

Impact is much more important than setup, but setup can help you make adjustments to GET into the impact you want.

Hi Steve! a question. In my stance I have the tendency to forward-press the club so the grip(with every club) is in front of my left leg (the inner part). I would like to know your opinion, maybe I’m doing a big mistake and I don’t know. If not, should my clubface be open as consequence of the forward press or it should still be square, what for my look like quite shut position? Thanks a lot

I believe that most golf instructions never teaches one what they need to know to really come to peace with a swing. I know that my back swing and takeaway has changed constantly. It has gone from each of the first three you described many times over. I feel that a positional back swing leads to a compulsion that causes me go to an extreme with any one position I am trying to reach. This leads to the ultimate failure of the technique in a short time. You have helped my game so much thanks.

Unlike so many other instructors , you have explained so clearly how to achieve a perfect takeaway to get the club on plane….brilliant stuff , will take a look at your site to see what other little gems you have up your sleeve .

Nick Melia says:

once piece takeaway really does the same thing youre explaining

pileitup1 says:

super tip steve. almost impossible to hit a really bad shot with this move.

chumpglows says:

really good stuff. you clearly have a really good grasp of how a good golf swing should work and you do a great job of explaining it. thanks dude.

ruud76 says:

Really solid advice. I was waiting to see it demonstrated and that swing was just pure.

renoir353 says:

Thank you Steve, this is the most helpful and very clear instuctions for a golfer like me who makes a lot of mistakes you mentioned. Honestly I hardly ever sliced or hooked the ball on a couple of rounds I had after watching this video. Thanks heaps mate!!!!!!!!Well done, you are the man..

jdaog says:

steve, i love you man your the greatest, no homo

jdaog says:

word

RingerDaMan says:

I am glad to hear it has helped you so much. It’s a very easy concept to understand and perform which I think makes it so useful.

spadecat says:

This tip has flat out invigorated my golf game. I have been playing for over 30 years, spent thousands of dollars on clubs, swing aides and studied the game for countless hours. Yet, this one, nine minute instruction has produced more consistently solid shots than all the foregoing combined.

Where do I send my check? I would love to kiss your feet but I think it would be best for both of us if I just rewarded you handsomely with a big, fat check.

I kid you not.

spadecat says:

Excellent advise. Results in a one-piece takeawy, which is what one wants.

Swing is absolute money.

Keith Miller says:

I’m a one piece takeaway kinda guy.

reckoner19 says:

gotta admit, you sorta sound geeky, but tip is good and swing looks great

chrisfarm32 says:

I totally agree with the takeaways. Good info!

robb1031 says:

juicyfruitzy says:

I rather have a nasty ass looking driving range and great instruction than a nice looking driving range with crap advice which there is a lot of on youtube!!!!

fabianforti says:

steve great drill and thought…but would this fall under the umbrella of a one piece takeaway?

mtrimboli says:

this video is spot on.
