In this video it looks like you are doing the take away with your arms? Surely this is not what you want as you want to keep your arms powerless?

Watch it again. I say I am taking it back with my shoulders. If I just moved my arms my shoulders would not have moved.

I’m doing the one piece take away, it’s when I reach the half-way and above, that my right elbow flares out, not good. What’s the fix?

Make sure your arms are fully extended at address and your elbows are turned out.

If you have the elbows flared out it would be easy to flare out the back elbow as you go back.
Next, I hope you have seen my one piece takeaway tips. You can watch them here:

From these you need to move to the halfway back position here:

You really need to be working on the distance of the elbows. If the back elbow is flying they are separating. If you keep them more together the can’t separate.

Great tip Paul,
I am in my 60’s and I always had a short back swing. One bad habit that I have is not completing the back swing. Obviously, this creates all sorts of problems with getting my lower body into the downswing. Is there a cure or a good habit that I can incorporate to encourage or force a proper back swing? I look forward to hearing from you.
