How to properly execute the first move away from the ball

    13

    The first move away from the ball is one of the areas that Brandel Chamblee placed quite a bit of emphasis on in his book Anatomy of Greatness. This area of the swing is the most anatomically sound and task-oriented initial moves that will greatly help keep you on track for more consistent actions to a target.

    When you see the strategy behind this move, you will realize how well it fits the way a swing delivers a ball to a specific target through a chosen ball flight. Of course, this is what the greats do because this is one of the main ingredients that makes a swing great!

    Enjoy!!

    1. Shawn, I am reposting my comments for your reply.
      Before you make an initial movement you must mentally and physiologically prepare yourself at static Address.
      Questions:
      1. Do you clear your mind and make the initial move naturally and unconsciously…. or do you consciously think about the takaway and perhaps a swing tip too? The takeaway is supposed to be low and slow and the mind will wander and focus on what is happening slowly. How does Dr. Wulf explain the transition from conscious to unconscious motor movement and control. I repeat, the transition which may be a contradictory condition in the mental processes.
      2. After making your Address preparations, and just before you start your takeaway, should you physiologically inhale or exhale, and why?
      3. Your takeaway advice is generic. How does it apply to golfers of different body types with different swing patterns? Thanks.
