Golf Lesson #3

At about 12:30 one night I realized that, in focusing on my takeaway, I was forgetting to turn my shoulders much at all and that my takeaway had become more of an arms-only move. Stupid. One-piece? More like two. And a half.

The instructor confirms this, and we move on to the next task: the hip slide and the karate chopping of my left arm (power accumulator #4). The "hip slide" tends to lock up my left knee, so it's now become "left knee down and forward," which seems a bit more effective. The karate chop bit has an accompanying drill that I can do: takeaway to half or so, get knee/hips ahead of the ball, then chop down without the shoulders opening. Ball should go out a little ways and perhaps draw a little.
