Hundreds of amateur golfers make a very similar mistake as they start their backswing, but there's a simple takeaway drill that will not only improve how you strike the ball, but it will also help you to add distance to your game.

Danny provides an easy golf drill for you to work on to help you start your takeaway in a similar way to some of the world's best ball strikers. Give this drill a try next time you're on the driving range and see how quickly it improves your ball striking with your irons, which will also lead to gaining a few extra yards...

 

 

Danny's Key Tips for the perfect takeaway: 

Exercise One - Create a slight kink in the wrist by pushing the handle down slightly and using your left arm (for right handed players) take the club away and try to keep the butt of the grip close to your trail leg. Sticking a tee peg into the end of your grip is a great way to better visualise this and the tee should stay pointing at your leg as you start the takeaway. Create a rocking motion and take the club a quarter of the way back and a quarter of the way through, just to get a feel for where the club should be positioned at these points. This exercise can be done using the opposite arm too, as the important factor is the position of the club and keeping the butt of the grip facing your trail leg.

Danny has two more exercises to help correct a poor takeaway, so make sure you watch the video above to find out more!
