This is a club we create to learn certain positions in the takeaway and at the top of the swing. First we need to create the club. Take an older club, an old wedge is good and cut the end cap of the grip off. Then take a shaft with no clubhead on it and take the end of the shaft (not the grip end) and slide it into the shaft of the club you removed the top of the grip from. This produces a long club which will be needed to perform the drills correctly.
Takeaway: Most golfers swing the club to far inside on the takeaway and roll the clubface open. This gets the club too far behind you and will more than likely encourage and over the top move on the downswing, producing the dreaded slice most of us fight. With the extended club we are going to learn a takeaway that keeps us from taking the club to far inside on the takeaway and rolling the face open.
First we must get into position to work this drill. Grip the club with the original grip and slide the longer part of the club up your left side underneath your left arm pit. Then begin to make a takeaway move with the club. You need to feel the extended part of the club stay positioned against your left hip during the initial takeaway move. This will keep the hands closer to the body and allow the club head to move more down the line and avoid moving inside too quickly. Continue this motion until the club gets to a parallel position to the ground. As your wrists then begin to hinge the long portion of the club will then begin to move down your left thigh.
If this move is down properly the club face of the club will stay slightly closed (club face pointed down toward the ground) and the shaft of the extended club will be pointed toward the target once it is at a position which is parallel to the ground. This will help you feel the proper takeaway position, more on plane and keep you from rolling the club face open and swinging the club too far inside on the takeaway.
